How much of a loser do you have to be to try to convince hundreds of people that you’re a celebrity? Social experiment my a**. Brett Cohen decided that it’d be a great idea to try to fool people into thinking that he was important by hiring a bunch of photographers, posting them outside a hotel and then posing for the fake paparazzi. Here’s the only problem I see with that. If you’re in Times Square and hired photographers are following you around OF COURSE tourists are going to think you’re a celebrity. Who do you think takes pictures with anti-semitic Elmos? Not New Yorkers, that’s for sure.
Truthfully, I might have felt a little differently if those girls at 2:13 were over the age of 18. This isn’t even the first time that anyone’s tried anything like this.
