Aaron Paul, Emmy Award-winning "Breaking Bad" actor, thrilled a group of fans on one of those Hollywood celebrity coach tours by actually walking outside to greet them.
One could hear the fans disbelief when Paul popped out of his home and walked down stairs to visit the McNeive family on vacation from Ireland in a video (below) that was posted on YouTube
and has already generated 2.2 million views.
Paul can be seen asking the visiting family about their vacation and talking about shooting the latest episodes of "Breaking Bad" before joining them in the coach to pose for pictures.

"We’re assuming most celebs hate these tours, what with groups of star-crazy out-of-towners pulling up to your home at all hours of the day with a guide screaming over a loudspeaker in your otherwise quiet neighborhood," said Katie Atkinson of the Entertainment Weekly's
Pop Watch blog. "But Paul’s reaction when he sees the bus? He runs down the stairs, greets everyone with some friendly small talk, and then gets on the bus to take pictures with the overjoyed tourists."
"Sometimes I see the van, and sometimes I don’t," Paul told the family, according to the Hollywood Reporter
. "And when I do, I try to say hello.”
Paul told the touring family, who said on the video they were on from Ireland on vacation, that his own family was in town to attend the season premiere of "Breaking Bad."
"Breaking Bad" began its final season on July 24. Paul appeared at the Television Critics Association press tour on July 26, where he told reporters he imagined his character was searching for a father figure when the series began, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
"Breaking Bad," a series that centers on a dying high school chemistry teacher turned high-quality meth dealer, is in its fifth season, according to IMDb.com. Paul plays Jessie Pinkman, a former student of meth-making teacher Walt White, played by Bryan Cranston.
Paul won the Emmy last year for outstanding actor in a drama series and is nominated in the same category again this year. The show was nominated for nine Emmys this year including for outstanding drama series.
