You're at the Electric Forest Festival, enjoying one of the event's many DJ sets when a bearded stranger starts making small talk. You don't think much of it, because you're bound to dance with strangers at a festival, right? But then you realize that his friend is recording the encounter, and the talkative stranger keeps pointing at your banner, which just so happens to be a blown-up replica of McLovin's driving license from the legendary 2007 teen comedy, Superbad.
Maybe these guys love Superbad just as much you, and want to embrace the majesty of your McLovin banner, or maybe the bearded partygoer by your side is, in fact, McLovin himself, Christopher Mintz-Plasse!
Yep, this unlikely encounter actually happened to one lucky super-fan at this year's Electric Forest Festival. The oblivious Superbad enthusiast leaped back in disbelief when he discovered that his new dance partner once played the movie's most iconic character. The fan proceeded to hug Mintz-Plasse, pulling up his glasses to make sure the actor is the one true McLovin. It's an unlikely moment that shows just how iconic the movie still is, 10 years after its release.
Watch the entire interaction below:
Mintz-Plasse has changed a lot over the past 10 years, and his facial hair definitely makes it understandable as to why this fan took so long to recognize him. That being said, this glorious moment surely made the festival one to remember for the unsuspecting fan. Of course, when fans meet a celebrities, things can get pretty awkward. However, these encounters often lead to some hilarious moments too:
Remember That Time Tom Hanks Crashed A Wedding Photoshoot?
Just like the fortunate Superbad fan, this happy couple had no idea they would be meeting a celebrity on their wedding day, and were caught completely off-guard.
Tom Hanks was strolling through Central Park, New York City, when he ran into a couple's wedding photoshoot. Naturally, the Forrest Gump actor decided to join in the party! This couple certainly got a memorable surprise on their special day once Hanks introduced himself, and the newlyweds were included in the actor's Instagram selfie.
Although these encounters were purely coincidental, it's also great to know that actors are willing to connect with fans for a worthy cause:
