South by Southwest sometimes points you straight toward "Motownphilly," it looks like. After the world premiere of romantic comedy "Long Shot" starring Seth Rogen and Charlize Theron, R&B stars Boyz II Men made a surprise appearance at the Paramount Theatre. The band makes a cameo at the beginning of the movie.

According to Twitter reports, Boyz II Men performed "Motownphilly" and "I'll Make Love to You." Also, Theron was apparently very into the whole thing. Check out scenes from the surprise performance on Twitter.
