A group of New Jersey high school students got quite the power punch when "Rocky" star Sylvester Stallone decided to pay them a surprise visit. Students from Eastside High School's Culinary Arts, Hospitality, and Tourism School (CAHTS) in Paterson were on their way home from a field trip Monday when they decided to stop by the statue of Rocky Balboa, from the classic "Rocky" film series, near the bottom of the Philadelphia Museum of Art's steps.

"When the students first arrived at the museum, they went to the statue and somebody said, 'Hey, you just missed Sylvester Stallone,'" said CATHS Principal Edgard Nieves in a statement. "Nobody believed he was there, and then two black SUVs pulled up." None other than Rocky himself, Mr. Sylvester Stallone, jumped out of one of the vans and ran through the excited gaggle of students and jumped up on the statue.
