NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — He may not be a paparazzo, but Nebraska teen Jacob Murray has snapped the latest viral celeb photo.

On Sunday night, Murray, 16, took a photo of his friend Tom White on an Omaha, Neb., sidewalk — standing in front of Warren Buffett and Paul McCartney as the two men sat casually on a bench in the background. White tweeted the image, and by Monday it had gone viral.

“Chillin with my homies” said White’s tweet, which linked to a copy of the image on Instagram.

Murray, White and another boy took a series of photos with the two men on Sunday, according to Murray’s father, John.

The image was later re-tweeted by Paul McCartney’s Twitter handle on Monday afternoon.

“Just handing out with friends,” @PaulMcCartney wrote.

Earlier in the evening, the billionaire CEO of Berkshire Hathaway and the Cute Beatle had dinner at Avoli Osteria, an Italian restaurant in the Dundee neighborhood of Omaha, according to Omaha.com.

Next, the two headed to eCreamery, a local ice cream shop, according to co-owner Becky App.

“Warren comes in here quite a bit, but he’s never brought Sir Paul as a guest before, so it was pretty exciting,” App said.

McCartney will be playing in Lincoln, Neb., on Monday night, according to his website.

    Can we please stop referring to any photograph of a person in it as a "selfie?" If the photo of someone was taken by someone else, it is not a selfie.
