Ed Sheeran got extra meta during a side quest over the weekend, singing one of his first hit songs while working at America’s biggest mall.
The “Shape of You” singer surprised fans at Mall of America by working a shift as a “brick specialist” at the Lego store over the weekend.
Not only did he assist customers shopping for the iconic building blocks, all while decked out in a bright yellow apron and name tag reading “Ed,” but he also gave an acoustic performance of “Lego House,” one of his first singles off his debut album +, to fans who had gathered.
He shared a video from his “shift” on Instagram:

Fans joked in the comments, “I love when famous people do side quest” while another praised Sheeran’s dedication to his fans by writing, “He is a great man. Get up close and personal with fans.” Even the official Lego brand jumped into the fun, paying homage to the song with the comment, “We think we love you better now.”
Sheeran also shared a sneak peek at a surprise for fans attending his Minneapolis show later that day, showing off a mini Lego figure wearing an “Autumn is Coming” shirt that could possibly point to new music on the way.
