James Malcolm posed with the star but was not ready for the internet's amazing response...

A young comedian from New Zealand had his selfie go viral after he posed with a rockstar despite having no idea who he was.

James Malcolm, the self-proclaimed "wannabe gay icon" and "Taylor Swift of New Zealand Comedy" according to his Twitter bio, was waiting to board a flight when he noticed one of his fellow passengers getting a lot of attention around him.

Subtly done James, nice job! 

Oh, and that's Nick Cave btw, the legendary rock performer and frontman of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds.

He even had a duet with Kylie once. It was a very big deal at the time.

But, unable to find an immediate answer on social media, James just decided to hedge his bets and get a photo in case he regretted it later.



And that's when the fun started...

Because while James was up in the air, his photo spread around the internet with increasingly hilarious responses to his question.

Here's just a few of our faves:








Fantastic work all around.

James was obviously a bit shocked when he got off the flight but he seems to be taking it well.



One step closer to becoming a gay icon James - keep taking those celebrity selfies!
