OMAHA, Nebr. -- If 2014 has taught us anything, it's that epic life moments should be captured in a selfie. When a Nebraska teen spotted Paul McCartney and Warren Buffett sitting on a bench Sunday, he did just that.

16-year-old Tom White was walking around his hometown of Omaha, Nebraska, when he saw the musician and the billionaire sitting on a bench. He stood in front of the famous duo, put up his thumb, and took a selfie.

As of Monday morning, White's photo had over 870 likes on Instagram.

As the Huffington Post pointed out, White's photo may not be an authentic selfie, because it's unclear whether White took the photo himself, or if a friend did the honors.

White's friend Luke Koesters also posted the picture on his Twitter account, and told Mashable that their friend Jacob Murray took the photo.

White has posted a number of less-epic selfies on his Instagram account, including this recent one of him posing in front of a fireworks show.

 On Sunday, others captured photos of McCartney and Buffett in Omaha.

Apparently the two had been eating ice cream on that now-famous bench, before White snapped the viral selfie.

McCartney is on tour, and will perform in Lincoln on Monday night.
