A small group of tourists got the photo opportunity of a lifetime, after racing up the stairs at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, made famous in the Rocky movies, with Sylvester Stallone climbing them in his Philadelphia training montages.
Peter Rowe said he and his two friends had just finished running the steps, when they saw Sylvester Stallone himself.
“He said to us, ‘Man, you guys are fast. You’re making me look bad!"’ Rowe said.Stallone then posed for a selfie with the trio, putting up one fist.“Look tough, guys!” he said, according to Rowe.

After Rocky, thousands of people visit the steps every year to re create the magic and take pictures with a Rocky statue, first used as a prop in Rocky III, featuring Mr. T is his formidable opponent.
