It’s life’s simple pleasures that really make a person happy: The feeling of a cool breeze on a warm day, a morning stretch, or laying down to watch The Bachelor after a hard day’s work

Or, if you’re Seth Rogen, getting to relive Back to the Future live on the Oscars stage.

As part of the 2017 show’s segment about inspiration, the actor recorded a segment about the inspiration he culled from Michael J. Foxand the infamous movie series. He waxed poetic about the film and its impact on his life, including his awe over the costume designer’s prescient taste. “If you saw Tilda Swinton wearing one of those outfits today, no one would think it was weird,” he gushed. 

And then, to make things really come full circle, Rogen got to grace the Oscar stage alongside his childhood hero to present an award. And, even better, they got to do so alongside a real replica of the DeLorean. Wait, actually, that’s not all: Seth got to wear a pair of futuristic Back to the Future-style sneakers, natch. 

The actor could barely contain his glee, telling the audience that all he needed to do was sing the Schuyler Sisters song from Hamilton in front of all of Hollywood and he would have completed his entire bucket list. And with that, the two new BFFs began the cutest duet we’ve ever seen. (Make that the cutest duet from two people who are definitely not singers.)

Gary From Chicago Just Became the Biggest Star Inside the 2017 Oscars

Forget about seeing stars, these tourists are the stars!

During Sunday night’s 2017 Oscars, host Jimmy Kimmel decided to deliver a huge surprise to a group of visitors riding along a Starline tour bus.

At first, these guests thought they were going to see a fancy exhibit inside the Dolby Theatre. In reality, they were going to crash the 89th Annual Academy Awards on live TV.

With the lights turned off, the audience counted down from three to one.  Soon after, the crowd yelled “Mahershala” as the cameras turned on the unsuspecting tourists.

Wearing street clothes with their iPhones out, the group was completely caught off guard. One guest, however, handled it like a true pro.

Gary from Chicago immediately introduced himself to Jimmy while carrying a handbag and iPhone.  He didn’t hesitate to kiss Nicole Kidman on the hand before meeting Ryan Gosling.

In a surprise twist, Gary’s fiancé Vicki introduced herself and pronounced she’s getting married July 18. When she revealed Denzel Washington was her favorite actor, the Oscar nominee decided to make her dreams come true.

“I now pronounce you husband and wife,” he joked with the couple before posing for a selfie. “You may kiss the bride.”

Jennifer Aniston generously donated a gift from her purse as a wedding present before the live and unscripted segment ended. And they lived happily ever after, obviously. 

Gary and Vicki: Will you please come back soon?
