On the night of July 27th, 2012, a huge prank was pulled in New York City and this is the video of what took place. Brett Cohen came up with a crazy idea to fool thousands of pedestrians walking the streets of Times Square into thinking he was a huge celebrity, and it worked! He dressed up like a typical celebrity and was accompanied by an entourage of two professional bodyguards, two assistants, and photographers pretending to be paparazzi. While the assistants and photographers waited for Brett to exit the 49th street marquee at NBC Studios, they started a buzz that a “big star” was about to walk out, thus making it worth their while to wait and get a picture. Many asked the crew whom Brett was, and no answer was given. As the crew walked over to Times Square, the crowds around Brett grew on each consecutive block. Very few people even questioned who he was, where he was from, or what he does. Brett took pictures with nearly 300 people before the stunt ended. The video even includes interviews with people who had just taken a picture with Brett. This social experiment, of sorts, makes a profound statement about how modern culture is so attracted to pop culture, without any real credibility needed!
The original Smooth Criminal!
A Russian biker is on video riding a tiny little bike. The video looks just like Homer Simpson’s attempt to be Krusty the Clown in Klown College for any Simpsons fans that have seen the episode. In the video the man, dressed in full cyclist gear, pulls a miniature bicycle out of his backpack and puts it on the ground. He fits one foot onto one side and somehow balances enough to get both feet on and start pedaling. The bike has wheels, pedals and a handlebar but is barely as big as the cyclist’s foot. The pedals are slightly bigger and somehow seem able to support him as he pedals.
