George Lopez and Action Bronson greet each other at Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival on April 10, 2015.

Yes, as in THAT George Lopez.

When both weekends of Coachella 2015 have concluded, the festival will undoubtedly have included a bevy of special guests and surprise appearances during its hundreds of sets. Few, if any, will be as unexpected as the celebrity that Queens rapper Action Bronson brought onstage during his Friday set: veteran comedian George Lopez, whom Bronson called "the motherfucking legend."



The former talk show host was watching Bronson's energetic set from the side of the stage when the rapper paused to bring out his famous supporter. Lopez, wearing shades, a black backwards hat and a button-up, waved to the admiring crowd and raised his fist to Bronson when he returned to his viewing spot.

Lopez's cameo was just one of the many lovable eccentricities that occurred during Bronson's set, which was one of the highlights of a Friday afternoon slate full of underground hip-hop performances (Ab-Soul, Lil B and Vic Mensa, among others). Stalking the stage with his mighty red beard falling over his black tee, Bronson delivered steady flows of clever bars while making interjections like, "I wish I could sing like one of the Ialeys, but I can't. Oh wait, yes I can!"

Bronson also came face-to-face with the main stage crowd on a number of occasions, asking one gentleman who was in his personal space, "You want to touch my beard, you motherfucking weirdo?" He also made out with a girl in the audience seconds later, walked onstage to a Metallica song, and goaded the audience with, "Shake your motherfucking asshole. Shake your motherfucking asshole!"

Bronson's latest album, Mr. Wonderful, was released last month and debuted at No. 7 on the Billboard 200 albums chart. Click here for more Friday afternoon highlights at Coachella.
