A group of students visiting the famous “Rocky” statue in Philadelphia this week got the surprise of their lives.

Thirty students from Eastside High School’s Culinary Arts, Hospitality and Tourism School in Paterson, New Jersey, were on a field trip to the iconic venue, when the one and only Sylvester Stallone made an appearance.

The actor was filming something special at the location, revealing more on Instagram.

The school’s vice principal John Super III told NJ Advance Media of the meeting: “I see Sylvester Stallone actually walking toward me.

“I’m saying, ‘No, no, this isn’t really him. This is probably just a lookalike.’

“He just seemed so down to earth. It was a joy and blessing not only for kids but the adults that were there. It was a great moment, it really was. He took the time and was respectful with the kids.”
