I went to school with the nephew of the Russian guy that's in Armageddon, Minority Report, etc. When I was a kid, Jim Baker said Hi to me. That's as close as I've got.

Back in the day, 1990s, when mtv was something. I was living in daytona beach. I met duff. Lenny Kravitz hung out with me and my buddies before he did his set.

I met Ted koppel in some little town in Maryland. I was really surprised because it was some speck on a map type place.

I met Matt Farrah of the Smoking Tire when I was at the Greenwich Concours d'Elegance a few years ago. He is a pretty cool guy.

Anyone accidentally run into someone famous?

Just me and Billy Dee. He sat next to me at the bar in the Ottawa airport and ordered a grilled cheese sandwich.

Took my friend's 5 year old to the bathroom at a rest stop on the Garden State Parkway. He peed next to Kevin Bacon.

Saw and stopped by a NASCAR car parked outside of a local auto parts store on a late Saturday afternoon back in 2005 or so. My two young sons and I were the only ones there, except for the store employee who was sitting near the race car. I'm not a big NASCAR fan, but I like cars, so I showed the kids the car and the engine and they liked it. Then the store employee came up and started talking to us, asked us if we wanted an autograph, which I thought was strange. "No, thanks, we gotta head out. Have a nice day." About 5 minutes later down the road I realized the store employee was Ricky Rudd.

I'm originally from LA and have met the following people :

-The Scooby Doo gang from the movie(my step-dad works for WB, so he took us to meet them).

-Shane Dawson at the Burbank Mall(youtube celebrities count?)

Met the following at a YouTube convention many years ago :

Epic Meal time crew
Ryan Higa
Tay Zonday
Tobuscus(I have a video with him on FB doing a shoutout)
Smosh crew

And of course, being from LA, I've seen/met Jay Leno about a million times. He isn't very shy lol.
