What do you do when you’re out for a stroll in Omaha, and spot Warren Buffett and Paul McCartney on a park bench?

Snap a selfie, of course.

Sixteen-year-old Tom White saw the pair in Omaha’s Dundee neighborhood and gave Ellen DeGeneres’ star-studded Oscar selfie a run for its money with his own version.

The famous pair apparently had dinner at Avoli, an Italian restaurant in Dundee, followed by a scoop (or two) of ice cream at eCreamery.

And what flavor did Sir Paul indulge in?

According to the Omaha World Herald, the former Beatle had two scoops of eCreamery’s vanilla.

White wasn’t the only passerby to get a photo with the two. A crowd stood outside the ice cream shop to mingle and take photos.

McCartney was in the area for a performance at Lincoln’s Pinnacle Bank Arena.
