Teens Try Sneaking Into ‘Black Panther’ Screening Using Tall Coat Disguise

February 19, 2018 Updated: February 19, 2018

Two teenagers wanted to watch the new Marvel superhero film “Black Panther,” but they did not want to fork out the money for two movie tickets.

So instead, they tried to sneak in and trick the theater’s manager. The duo used the oldest trick in the book, with one of them climbing onto his friend’s shoulders as a disguise for a very tall man in a trench coat.

They then topped off their outfit by buttoning up the coat and donning a fedora before standing in line for a ticket.

It was all recorded on camera and has become a viral video.

When one of the teenagers asked for “one to Black Panther” the ticket attendant was not fooled.

“You have to get down, man,” he said in the video.

The two teens started laughing, but they still kept up their disguise.

“Get down from what?” the teen asked.

The ticket attendant still didn’t buy it: “We can’t let you in unless you get down,” he said.

The duo walked away in disappointment, but the footage has gone viral on Twitter, gaining over 9 million views after it was posted on Friday, Feb. 16.

The user who posted the video tweeted it to the “Ellen Show,” apparently in hopes of getting some recognition.

One user asked a question that gained over 6 thousand retweets: “Where did y’all find such a tall dang jacket.”

“I swear to God if someone says, Burlington…” someone commented.

Another Twitter user replied: “He got it from Burlington.” That comment got nearly 5,000 retweets.

It’s unclear where the theater was located, but the user named Pillsbury who posted the video, is from Carson, California, according to his Twitter bio.

The highly anticipated film blew past expectations and made $192 million in ticket sales over the weekend in North America, according to CBS News.

It makes the film the fifth-biggest opening weekend ever, not accounting for inflation.
