JIMMY KIMMEL IS renowned for being a bit of a pranskter, but he may have just surpassed himself with this little stunt.

Last night, the team behind the Oscars got a busload of tourists and told them they were bringing them to a museum… only to surprise them and parade them through the actual Oscars.

Look at them. Just standing there with no idea of what’s about to happen.

The look on their faces when they realised where they were was utterly priceless.

Of course, the phones came out immediately.

Of all the tourists, one man stole the show.

Meet Gary Allen Cole from Chicago, the real star of last night’s ceremony.

While most people might be nervous or intimidated by the setting, Gary was as cool as a cucumber.

There he is kissing Nicole Kidman’s hand, no bother to him.

He mingled with Ryan Gosling.

Here’s Ryan standing up for him and giving him a bag of sweets. Somehow Gary didn’t faint on the spot.

And he got to hold Mahershala Ali’s Oscar statue!

Gary was joined by his fiancé Vicky, who got a KISS FROM RYAN GOSLING.

Jennifer Aniston gave her a pair of sunglasses! Just because!

But the best moment? That was when the couple were ‘married’ by their favourite actor Denzel Washington.

I now pronounce you husband and wife.

And yes, there’s already a parody account.

He’s truly made it, so.
