If you felt something magical in the air this weekend it wasn’t just your imagination, because Kim Kardashian and Kanye West graced our fair airport on their way to Paris Fashion Week.

Why did they fly out of SFO? According to TMZ, they were trying to avoid paparazzi, which is impossible even in a city like ours that really doesn’t care too much about celebrities.

However, the man who filmed Kanye in the terminal was definitely not a seasoned pro, as evidenced by the fact that he kept referring to him as “Kenya.”

Other onlookers started to give the photographer crap for messing with West, with one of them sending him off with a, “Go ahead Kanye, do your thing man. Get your money man!”

We really are the friendliest city in the world.
