Score another one for Reno teen Carter Wilkerson.

The Bishop Manogue student who shot to internet stardom with a plea for free chicken nuggets has a new credit to add to his resume.

Wilkerson appears early on in Katy Perry's star-studded music video for her new single, "Swish Swish."

The cameo comes at the 17-second mark. He sits in an empty arena, while wearing a "NUGGSFORCARTER" shirt. He eats a nugget and laughs when a basketball hits someone on the head.

Carter, of course, holds the record for most retweets in Twitter history, thanks to his plea for free Wendy's nuggets. He developed a rivalry with Ellen DeGeneres and garnered support from many celebrities and brands along the way.

He joins some other big names appearing in the music video, like Molly Shannon, Terry Crews, Rob Gronkowski, Karl-Anthony Towns and Joey Chestnut.
