Some chances only come once in a lifetime.
Meet Alfredo Pelicci, a Washington, D.C.-based lawyer who seized a very rare opportunity when he happened upon Kellyanne Conway and her bodyguard in the hallway at Lupo Verde restaurant.
“I walked right up to her and asked her for a selfie,” he tells Buzzfeed.
Conway happily obliged, but Pelicci didn’t take the promised selfie — he hit the record button instead.
“Say I’m ruining America!” he cried, smiling and posing beside the President’s advisor.
“You’re so brave! You should be happy!” a disgruntled Conway crowed.
Here’s how it all went down (click the speaker icon to turn on sound):
Since posting the video Thursday, Pelicci has become something of a folk hero on Twitter:
Am I the only one hoping this video of Alfredo Pelicci and Kellyanne Conway was recorded somewhere in Bowling Green? https://t.co/ZhFPlpzgSp

Funny indeed, but still not as funny as this.
My sister discovered she shares a birthday with Kellyanne Conway. Her bday is inauguration Day. That means this was Kellyanne's bday dress. pic.twitter.com/7YyPGh6BX9
