A little social experiment: Be a celebrity for the day (Video)

Using his real first and middle name, and with the help of just a few staged people, tons of people believed Thomas was a famous actor, including mall security. The mall assigned Thomas a security detail who escorted him everywhere and even helped close stores for the supposed celebrity. Most of the footage was captured with a single iphone.

It’s a sad world we live in sometimes.

          It was fun and shows that people are easily duped. If anything you should lay your lame ass criticism on the people that flocked to him.

  • rambo

  • itstanrum

    This makes me sad. Goes to show people will believe anything as long as enough other people follow it first.

      Of course, how do you think religion became so rampant in the world today?

      • Elan

        Oh, come ooooooon. Not everything has to connect to religion bashing. Learn some damn tolerance.

  • Blue bronco

    • Hayley

      So GD depressing!!

  • Bob

    The saddest thing in the world for that girl, is that when this video makes it out, and she realizes she didn't fuck a famous person, she's not going to feel as stupid as she should.

  • http://www.facebook.com/gdefisher Garrett DeFisher

    How does no one at the mall just IMDB the name 'Thomas Elliot' on their phones instead of Tweeting first??? Fuckin idiots

    • MeIrakly

  • http://www.facebook.com/jayfromdallas Jay Gardner

    I was on tour with a no named band and the merch guys uncle is a VIP butler at Planet Hollywood in Vegas… Him and some other guys in suits were ushering us around and kept taking pics and freaking out thinking we were some huge rockstars asking for autographs and shit… All we were doing was getting a tour of the casino and hotel Haha.

  • greg
