Oh hello, Mr. Buffett!

Joey Prusak -- the Minnesota Dairy Queen manager whose good deed for a blind customer went viral last week -- received a phone call he'll likely never forget.

Billionaire Warren Buffett, who owns Dairy Queen, called up the 19-year-old on Thursday to thank him for giving a visually-impaired man money from his own pocket. The man had unknowingly dropped $20 and a woman swiped it.

"He called and thanked me for being a role model for all the other employees and people in general," Prusak told the Associated Press.

Buffett also invited the teen to the 2014 Berkshire Hathaway shareholders meeting in Omaha, Neb., so that he can meet him, Dairy Queen spokesman Dean Peters told In the meantime, Peters said Dairy Queen is still working to figure out a way to reward Prusak for his act of kindness.

"Here's somebody that did something good for someone else and no one asked him to do it," Peters told ABC. "It strikes a chord in a lot of people."
