On Saturday, a group of tourists in Philadelphia were just doing what many tourists like to do when they visit the City of Brotherly Love: Run up the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art like Sylvester Stallone did when he played Rocky Balboa training to be a boxer in Rocky (1976).

Except unlike most tourists, these guys met the Rocky at the top of the steps. College friends Peter Rowe, Jacob Kerstan and Andrew Wright took the selfie of a lifetime with Sylvester Stallone, who was in town filming Creed, the seventh movie in the Rocky series. Stallone’s publicist confirmed the photo’s authenticity to the Philadelphia Inquirer.
