Legendary actor Sylvester Stallone posted a surprise video on his Twitter on Monday.  The video was shot in front of the Rocky statue near the steps of Philadelphia's Museum of Art.

As most people know, Stallone wrote and starred in the 1976 Academy Award-winning film that takes place in South Philly.

In one of the most iconic moments in the film, Rocky Balboa runs up the museum's steps.

According to visitphilly.com, the "Rocky statue" was created for use in a scene in the movie Rocky III.  Stallone donated the statue to the city of Philadelphia and it has resided next to the museum since 2006.

In the video posted on Monday, Stallone says, "To this day, I can't go over the fact that we're still here."  At the end of the video, he says, "Keep punching."

In the text that goes along with the video, Stallone tweeted, "We are doing something that is going to be VERY special and you’ll be seeing it soon, so hang in there and go for it!!!"



Phillyvoice.com says that Stallone has previously teased a Rocky TV show that would serve as a prequel to the films.  That may or may not be related to the posted video.
