In early April of 2012 at a popular mall in Virginia a group of friends conducted a bit of a social experiment. Using his real first and middle name, and with the help of just a few staged people, watch as tons of people start to believe that Thomas Elliot was a famous actor, including mall security. The mall assigns a security detail to escort Thomas everywhere and help close stores for the supposed celebrity. They also led the group through private corridors to avoid the frenzy. Cameras were quickly shut down, and most of the footage was captured with a single Iphone. The following is just a taste of all the autographs, pictures, and people who wanted get close to all the commotion. The makers of this short say go out and “Do something fun today”.
