The Olympic freeskier posted a photo of himself and Wilkas at Vanity Fair’s Oscar party. His caption was written as a parody of a Craigslist “Missed Connections” entry.

He called Martin and Yosef “gorgeous” and said that he and Wilkas “searched for you both for the rest of the night but never found you again.” 

“In town for a week,” he wrote. “Let’s connect.”

Appearing on CBS’ “The Talk” Tuesday, Martin said he and Yosef were “flattered” by Kenworthy’s compliments. 

“That is so cute ― and clever,” the Latin pop superstar said, as seen in the video above. “I mean, he’s a national hero. Give me a break!” 

Martin said the four would “definitely connect,” and, addressing Kenworthy directly, slyly added, “I love you, brother.”   

Not one to miss a beat, Kenworthy tweeted:
