Fake celebrity prank video goes viral

YouTube

It's proven: nothing attracts a bigger crowd than, well, a crowd.

In a YouTube video clip that recently went viral, a guy who goes by the name of Thomas Elliott was able to make people think he was a famous celebrity.

With the help of his friends, Thomas had everyone believe that he was an up-and-coming actor in the new 'Spider-Man' movie.

Within minutes, his 'entourage' was being escorted by mall security to keep the onlookers back. People were approaching him for pictures and autographs, and there were even a few stores closed so he could "shop in peace".

The only thing is, Thomas is no celeb, he’s just an ordinary fellow who probably lives with his parents and has a crush on Megan Fox.
