They were, uh, very tiny

Sorry John Travolta, but we don’t remember Grease‘s Danny being this hot.

Aaron Tveit had Twitter collectively swooning on Sunday night when his Danny donned a very tiny pair of shorts for a gym scene in Grease: Live. There isn’t much to say, other than Tveit had even the most snarky viewers pausing to enjoy his rippling muscles.

To be fair, the shorts had context – Danny dons the retro gym gear while trying to improve his athletic skills in order to impress the more straight-laced (and jock-loving) Sandy (Julianne Hough).

See what we mean? This is how viewers on Twitter responded:

And of course, his tank top couldn’t go unnoticed, either.

Suddenly everyone is wondering why Grease didn’t feature more shirtless scenes!

Grease: Live is airing live on Fox starting at 7 p.m. (ET).
