watch: hundreds of people swoon over fake celebrity in nyc

A couple months ago, a dude from Virginia Beach pretended to be famous in a local mall and a ton of people fell for it. I thought that was amazing...

Then this dude did the same thing in NYC, and HUNDREDS of people fell for it.

He did everything right, that's for sure. Showin' the check, shades at night, ridiculously ugly but gigantic security guards...

And via Gawker:
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 who Brett was, and no answer was given. They were forced to either make something up, or just take a picture with him in hopes that their Facebook friends or Twitter followers might have a better idea.
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.

Yep. This is another one of those "I'm so jealous of this person on YouTube" moments for me.
