During one part of the famous training montage in the 1976 film Rocky, Rocky Balboa runs up and down the 72 stone steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The movie became famous and those steps became famous as a result.

Peter Rowe and two of his college friends visited Philadelphia last week. They ate the customary cheesesteaks and decided to run up the iconic Rocky Steps. At that moment, Sylvester Stallone, the actor who played Rocky Balboa, showed up:

At the top, as they celebrated the moment, a voice from behind them said, "You guys got up here pretty fast. You're making me look bad."

They turned around. It was Rocky himself, Sylvester Stallone.

"He was walking around with some of his family," according to Rick Rowe, Pete's father, who posted the item on Facebook, along with a picture the three college students took with Stallone atop the famous steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
