At one point, Al approached a man dressed as a stick of butter and said: “I hate to butter you up, but you’ve got to move on, okay? There you go,” he said, while playfully shoving the butter man.

“Get out of here ya butter! I can’t believe it’s not butter!” he added after the shove.

Social media especially enjoyed the ridiculous interaction, with celebrities like Lin-Manuel Miranda tweeting about the “altercation.”
