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

59 14

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.

    Epic Fail…There are only 2 reasons why girls are freaking out over this fake celebrity. 1) They actually think he's cute or 2) They're gold diggers or just want to hold onto the fact that they've taken a picture or banged this "celebrity"… Man… Girls just stoop so low sometimes. :/

    Wow! who does that foreal those girls were so excited over a false notion, it just goes to show how ignorant, and desperate people can be.

  • noegod

    it's stupid how easily people can be manipulated. I remember when I was a kid, celebrities were people that had talent in a specific field, actors, athletes, or people working towards a good cause. now a days, a stupid youtube video is enough to label someone a celebrity. It's crap!
