This week, Twitter user @HonoredSpirit took the time to share a beautiful story about a friend’s encounter with Matthew Broderick—and one of his very famous friends—outside a convenience store.

It all apparently started with a family vacation on Long Island, New York. @HonoredSpirit’s friend was outside a beachside store getting some snacks with his daughter when they noticed the very famous Broderick walking by with a friend. Realizing it was a once-in-a-lifetime photo opportunity, he asked Broderick if he’d be willing to take a photo with his daughter. The Ferris Bueller star kindly agreed.

Apparently, this man had wanted to get the snapshot just right, and he asked Broderick’s friend (who was wearing sunglasses and a hat) to step aside and get out of the background a couple of times. After several tries and still no perfect shot, the man eventually resigned himself to needing to crop Broderick’s annoying friend out of the background and took the picture.

It wasn’t until he got back to the car with his family that he realized who Broderick’s friend had apparently been:

It is Jerry Seinfeld, right down to the dorky sneakers he famously wears in his Netflix series Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee, in a move strangely reminiscent of Seinfeld.

The conversation on the celebs’ car ride home must have been… pretty good.
