This photo’s really going the distance.
A group of tourists who ran up the famous Rocky steps in Philadelphia got the surprise of a lifetime when they found the Italian Stallion himself standing at the top.
“He said to us, ‘Man, you guys are fast. You’re making me look bad!’” Peter Rowe, who was among the tourists, told Global News on Tuesday.
Sylvester Stallone then posed for a selfie with the trio, telling them to “look tough, guys!”
The actor was in city for the shooting of Creed, and must have decided to relive his old glory days down by the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Thousands of people now visit those steps every year to recreate the famous run from the movie and take pictures with the Rocky statue, which was originally a prop from Rocky III.
These students, however, got the real deal.
Rowe’s friends, Jacob Kerstan and Andrew Wright, were all visiting from the Azusa Pacific University in greater Los Angeles. Yet strangely, in all that time they spent in L.A., this was the first time they saw a famous person.
And what a knockout it was.
