We already knew that Bryan Cranston was made of awesome, but, naturally, so is his Breaking Bad co-star, Aaron Paul. The Emmy-winning actor actually came out of his house to meet some starstruck Irish tourists.

Paul McNeive posted a video to YouTube on July 26; he and his relatives were driving past the star's home when they spotted him on the balcony. They called to him—saying, "We've come all the way from Ireland to see you. We'll sing a song!"—and then were shocked when he actually came down to say hello.

"Sometimes I see the van and sometimes I don't. And when I do, I always try and say hello," the actor told them.

He chatted with the tourists, inquired about their vacation so far and then hopped into their van to take photos with them. His own family was in town for the big—and last (sniff)—Breaking Bad premiere, which involved its own awesomeness of the cast arriving in the RV meth lab.

"What a cool guy," McNieve noted in his YouTube post. Agreed. He's just never going to get any rest now from visiting tourists, who will all expect him to come and say hi.

As he told Conan O'Brien about his new home in West Hollywood, "We moved in about a year ago, but we're already on the Star Tours. You have to drive up this windy road to get to my house; they stop in front. If I'm home and I see them, I will bust open my doors and yell, 'Yo, bitch!"

He talked about (we assume) the encounter with the Irish tourists in which he first intended to invite them to join him for mimosas. O'Brien pointed out, "You realize, you're not discouraging them. You make a personal appearance and you'll probably serve them liquor."
