When employees at a Vancouver-area sandwich shop heard a rumor that Liam Neeson was in the area filming a movie, they rewrote their sandwich board outside in an attempt to coerce the actor to come pay them a visit.

And, "Holy f--k, it worked!"

Written in chalk by the shop's super-fan employees, the sign read, "Liam Neeson eats here for free." The back of the sign read, "Come in and get 'Taken' away by our sandwiches."

Big Star Sandwich Co. workers Kyle Gus and Serge Patoka told BuzzFeed Canada they were totally shocked when the "Taken" star stopped by that Tuesday afternoon.

"We had no idea he would be in our vicinity," Big Star’s director of operations Alex Johrden told the publication. "I assume someone on the film crew saw the sign and got it back to him."

According to Johrden, Neeson didn’t take up the offer of a free sammy because he was in a rush, but he did make it a point to pose for a photo with Gus and Patoka.

The Big Star Sandwich Co. shared the photo on its Facebook page with the caption, "Holy f**k, it worked! #LiamNeeson."

"As you can see in the photo, they’re about as stoked as they’ve ever been in their lives," Johrden said.
