Johnny Galecki, best known for his role as Leonard Hofstadter in The Big Bang Theory, posted a video on Instagram containing a brief clip from the final moments of the show's Season 12 finale, scoring over 750,000 views -- and counting -- in just 15 hours. The actor thanked the Television Academy for posting some emotional moments from the cast and crew at the recent Emmy Awards.

Fans of the show also found the clip moving, sharing their sentiment in the comments section. One user, lezbigayforever, even shed a few tears.

"I'm crying all over again. I loved this show [with] every fiber of my being".
"2 good things actually happened here: shamy won the nobel and you got to slap sheldon.. Iconic."

"That's not to say that there may not be something down the line, but I don't think anyone wanted to jump into the next season and spin someone off immediately. I think the idea of letting things percolate a little, and you don't want to cash in. That doesn't mean that won't happen and, in a couple of years, maybe it's a character or a couple of characters that catch up within a couple of years."
