Jimmy Kimmel pulled off one of the coolest stunts in the history of the Oscars on Sunday night.

Tourists taking an open-deck bus tour of Hollywood's sights pulled up outside the Dolby Theatre where the Academy Awards were taking place.

The daring gag made instant stars out of Gary Allen Cole and his fiancee Vicky from Chicago.

The couple were first through the doors and fully embraced their impromptu meet and greet with Hollywood's A-list, shaking hands, hugging and taking pictures and video.

Gary and Vicky told Kimmel that they were engaged and planning to marry in July.

'Who's your favorite actor?' he asked Vicky.

'That man over there,' she replied pointing to Denzel Washington.

The A-list actor and Oscar nominee jumped to his feet and as they took video, he pronounced them husband and wife.

'Kiss the bride!' he instructed Gary.

Kimmel had orchestrated the stunt with the help of a tour bus guide who had told the group they were stopping off to visit an exhibit.

The tourists were taken into the Dolby Theatre by a circuitous back route after disembarking from their open-top double decker bus.

'In a few minutes those people are going to walk through these doors right here,' Kimmel had told the audience, gesturing to doors at the front of the theatre right to the side of the stage.

'If everybody stays perfectly still, maybe we can make them think they're at the wax museum,' he said.
