This Kid Wins With The Celebrity Selfie He Snagged In Nebraska

Todd-Spence by Todd-Spence on Jul. 14, 2014

Tom White of Dundee, Nebraska had a good Sunday. After hearing the extremely random news that Warren Buffett and Paul McCartney were at the local eCreamery, an ice cream restaurant in Dundee, he hauled tail, brining a guitar and Abbey Road vinyl he hoped McCartney would sign. When he arrived, he found McCartney and Buffett 'just chillin' on a bench out front. This was his opportunity.

Unfortunately, McCartney's bodyguard said that autographs and handshakes were out of the question, but photographs were allowed.

So Tom snagged this classic shot. The fact that Buffett (and McCartney as well?) are looking at Tom's phone makes the pic that much better.

I have to say, it's nice seeing younger kids interested in musicians like Paul McCartney. I'd take that over a selfie with 99% of the current musicans ANY day.

But why was McCartney in Dundee, Nebraska? He's currently on tour and was scheduled to play at the Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln, NE the following night.  Dundee and Lincoln are about an hour's drive between the two. As for Buffett, he lives in Omaha, which is only 3 minutes from Dundee, so why shouldn't McCartney and Warren hang out and get some tasty treats!

Truth be told, it wasn't technically a selfie because Tom's friend Jacob Murray is the one who actually took the shot. Either way, knowing what it's like to grow up in a small town, having a celebrity of any kind just randomly show up is a pretty cool thing. Based on Tom's huge grin, I'd say he agrees. (Source)

if he stopped to sign an autograph for EVERYONE that passes by him, he´d go crazy!!! common, fans should learn to respect celebrity´s privacy at least once and a while.

You kid would have definitely gotten my autograph if I were them, more so than usual because he knows who the hell Paul McCartney and Warren Buffet are even though they are well, well beyond his years.

Somethings not right here, the security around the both of them must have been really tight, espicially for Mr. Buffet. Dont have a clue how this kid was able to get so close to the both of them.......

"I have to say, it's nice seeing younger kids interested in musicians like Paul McCartney. I'd take that over a selfie with 99% of the current musicans ANY day." Gah... You almost made it through a whole story without sounding like a pretentious music snob... Music nowadays doesn't suck... You just have to know where to look. Every old generation think the current music sucks and that their gen's music was God's gift to the musical world....

Read the article, the kid didn't even take the shot, probably had no idea who he was.

I'm glad someone else on here can get past the two scumbags fame and fortune to see them for the fools they really are.

That smile kinda resembles that of a much younger Melissa Joan Hart, but I think it's also in the nose and eyebrows.

who cares about his gender? I'm impressed a kid his age knew who either of them is!! But what does bug me a big is that this picture was taken by a friend...that, by definition, is NOT a selfie.

Damn, he could have given the kid an autograph. What's the big deal. He should be glad a young person listen's to his music.

Only sad part to this is that 99% of the people who saw this thought that was a girl taking the selfie

I feel sorry for McCartney. Not even the sweet sweet taste of icecremery can make up for all those swarming peasants.

He could have at least signed the kids album! I understand the "no autograph" deal when there are hundreds of fans begging for one but in this situation it would have been nice of him to do it.

@Xery You could have also spelled it correctly. But that is none of my business.

@TheFaz Do you have any idea how many thousands of autographs- probably hundreds of thousands or even millions of autographs have been signed for that exact reason?  These people are just people who had a lucky lot in life.  Leave them alone.
