Imagine visiting Philadelphia, running up the Museum of Art stairs doing your best Rocky impression only to find Sylvester Stallone himself standing at the top. #SelfieTime.
If you ever visit Pennsylvania you must recreate the famous scene in Rocky when Sylvester Stallone runs up the stairs of the Philadelphia Museum of Art and throws his arms in the air. It’s a tick off the bucket list kinda thing to do.
On Saturday, a group of tourists were doing just that, and when they reached the top they got an extra special surprise – they saw the real Sylvester Stallone standing there.
At first they thought it was a celebrity impersonator. But no, Stallone was in town to film Creed – the seventh, yes seventh, installment in the Rocky series.
The three school buddies, Peter Rowe, Jacob Kerstan and Andrew Wright, told Associated Press, “Stallone said to us, ‘Man, you guys are fast. You’re making me look bad.”‘
Kerstan told the San Gabriel Valley Tribune they had a brief chat, “Then he started walking to his car so we ran up to him, and asked him, ‘Mr. Stallone, you don’t have to stop walking, but can we take a selfie?’”
He said Stallone obliged, saying, “Look tough, men!”
Then he quietly walked away.
That pic will be going straight on the wall of the pool room.
