People can't get over Chance The Rapper's reaction to bumping into Only Murders in the Building star Martin Short.
It's always lovely when celebrities don't end up so far up their own a**es they can appreciate they're not the only talented person on the planet - or on a plane, as Chance The Rapper was.
The 29-year-old - real name Chancelor Johnathan Bennett - was travelling with his daughter when he ended up bumping into Martin Short and had the most wholesome exchange.
And the rapper's fangirling and grateful tweet to the actor just tops it all off.
The rapper wrote: "So I just got on this plane with my daughter, and found out our seats weren’t next to each other.
"I really ain’t wanna inconvenience anyone by asking them to swap seats, but before I could say anything this kind older gentleman offered his seat to Kensli so we could sit together.
"We both said thank you and as he stands up, I realize it’s THE Martin Short!! So cool and Kensli freaked out cause she’s obsessed with The Santa Clause 3.
"What an awesome person! SHOUTOUT TO JACK FROST."
Fans of Short - best known for his roles in films such as The Santa Clause 3 and TV series Only Murders in the Building - flocked to the post in praise of his kind gesture giving up his seat for Chance's daughter.
Comedy writer Alan Zweibel said: "Typical Marty. One of the kindest, caring people I've ever known."
"Martin Short is the only human who really matters," another wrote.
A third echoed: "Martin Short... living legend. Love this."
Other Twitter users simply can't get enough of the run-in between the legendary pair.
One said: "I was like wow what a sweet story that happened to a totally random person and then realized Chance the Rapper tweeted it."
"Ahhhh so amazing!!!! I would have cried," a second wrote.
Another said: "Martin Short is the man. I’m curious if he knew who Chano was. Wouldn’t surprise me either way - just a cool story of two awesome humans meeting."
A final added: "Collab?"
