Spotted on social media: Sir Paul McCartney at an ice cream shop in Omaha, Neb., Sunday night.

Tom White, 16, and his McCartney-obsessed friends bolted to the establishment in Omaha's Dundee neighborhood after seeing a celebrity trail on Instagram. They found the former Beatle sitting on a bench with none other than resident billionaire Warren Buffett.

The boys introduced themselves. Then, Jacob Murray snapped a picture of starstruck White.

"I just turned around and put a thumb up," said White, who posted the pic on Instagram with the caption "Chillin with my homies." Local media outlets picked up the post, and then national sites started sharing it — even McCartney retweeted the photo.


Giddy from the social media buzz, they tell Yahoo Trending the experience has taught them to go for it, cherish every moment, and appreciate the small (and hugely social) things in life. It's a freak-out moment Tom and his pals will remember for the rest of their lives. After all, everything, including "Yesterday," lives forever on the Internet.
