It’s Mike Myers SNL alum known for cult films such as Wayne’s world and Austin Powersbut the movie that looks the most in trend on social media after all these years is Shrek. The animated film was released more than 20 years ago and has spawned several sequels, as well as “Professional Shrekheads,” theories of wild fans, and more. Myers has been busy promoting his new Netflix series, Pentaverate, a comedy created by Myers and executive producer. During his press tour, Myers said his children are not Shrek fans, and he also reacted to the fact that Oscar-winning actor, Al Pacino, has Shrek’s phone mask. In the classic Myers way, the actor plays multiple characters in the new show. One of the roles that fans didn’t expect to see was Shrek himself, who appeared in a cameo in one of the episodes.

In one episode, he is chased by Bigfoot and Shrek comes to his aid, and I am a believer playing in the background.
