Steven Spielberg, a veritable Zeus in the Gods of Geek came down from the mountain today at SDCC to address his subjects at the Tintin Panel and thank them for years of support. When the applause died down, the attendees got a very heartfelt message from the man who brought ET and Jaws to life.

He remarked on how he identifies with the crowd and wishes he was down in the audience instead of on the stage. He’s just a kid at heart after all, just ask his wife…

Here’s the actual speech.
