Legendary country music superstar George Strait is very much looking forward to the weekend and wants his fans to know it. He took to social media on Friday to express his excitement that the weekend is almost here and offer a “cheers” to his fan base.

“Cheers to the weekend!” he posts on Instagram next to two alcoholic beverage emojis. He includes a photo with the phrase “When you see your friend walk in with a bottle of Codigo.” Strait is referring to his favorite tequila, of which he is also an investor in, according to the Houston Press.

“Normally, when we think of tequila, we shoot it and try to drown out the taste with a lime as soon as you can. Código is not like that at all,” Strait said upon introducing the tequila to a Houston, Texas crowd.

“I love me some George Strait but he really (looks) like Forrest Gump here,” a Twitter user writes. The fan adds a laughing emoji, music notes emoji and party emoji to the tweet.

“It was my birthday and my son bought me a bottle of codigo and it was your edition bottle,” another fan tweets. “We saluted and had cheers, thank you!”
