Confidence is not only useful in your everyday life, but may be the key to living the life of others as well. The following people have managed to sneak their way into private events, while leading others to believe that they are, who they say they are. These people have made it their mission to gain access to what would be considered forbidden for most. With a good costume and lots of confidence, these people have gotten into private events that most would only dream of attending. Here are three stories of people who have literally been able to “fake it until they make it.”
Zac Efron’s Car
At the International Cannes Film Festival in 2012 a brave man with an ambitious goal set out to sneak into famous actor Zac Efron’s car, which was headed to an elite after party. In order to pull off this elaborate ruse the man dressed up in a suit extremely similar to that of the security guards that were to accompany Efron. With eyeglasses that doubled as a camera, the man managed to enter the car unnoticed as a swarm of paparazzi enveloped the surrounding area. Immediately after entry the other security guards realized that one of them was seatless, but still hadn’t managed to put the pieces together. As the pandemonium in the car calms down suspicions start to arise. The man simply pretended that he had been under the impression that this was another car and is promptly asked to leave, but not before a few laughs were had between him and Efron. Overall, it was what some might call a success.
A comedian named Mark Proksch got on various local news stations in an attempt to become a fake “Yoyo Master.” Under the alias “Kevin K-Strass”, Mark Proksch successfully landed numerous TV gigs showcasing his amazing YoYo talents. Disguising himself as a non-profit yoyomaster, Proksch attempts to show off his tricks as it becomes increasingly clear to the newscaster that his intent was not, in fact at all to showcase his newfound talent, but to get on television. His failed attempts at tricks are blindingly obvious as he swings his Yoyo nonsensically around his head.
Man Alters Wikipedia Page
A man from Australia had the best plan to get into the green room of a famous electronic-music duo named Peking-Duk. As many know, Wikipedia can be edited by just about anyone with a Wikipedia account, and this can lead to lots of false information gained from what was once deemed a reputable source. David Duey Spargo, an Australian man, used his ability to successfully navigate the internet to his advantage when he edited Peking-Duk’s Wikipedia page to mention his name as one of their family members. The genius move was the sole catalyst in gaining him access to their backstage green room. He showed the security guards the Wikipedia page and they let him backstage, no questions asked. In fact, the band was so impressed by his stealthy tactics that they even posted about it on their Facebook page, praising the man for his successful efforts as well as enjoying a drink with him in the green room.
