Devon Sawa, who played the titular character in Eminem’s hit song “Stan,” recently talked about what it was like filming the video and how he knew he was becoming a part of something that’d be remembered for years to come.

In an interview with ET, the actor recalled his time filming the iconic video that was directed by none other than the legendary producer Dr. Dre. He said he was excited knowing that he was part of something important.

“This is one of the most favorite things I’ve done. I’m so proud to talk about that video. Those three days on set were some of the best days I’ve had on set. I was surrounded by greatness.

“You knew Dre knew what he was doing in those three days. You knew how excited he was, and he knew what he was doing and where he was getting. So you kind of knew you were being a part of something important.”

Released on November 20, 2000, Stan became an instant critical and commercial success; clinching the top spot in 12 countries. The song’s opening lyrics were sampled from “Thank You” by Dido while the rap portion was performed by Eminem.
