These two had a foolproof plan for getting into the movies...
With all the hype surrounding Black Panther, you can’t really blame these two kids or their brilliant plan to get a two-for-one showing.
We tried getting the two for one special at black panther. The manager was not having it. pic.twitter.com/Ktqsuh7s3m— Pillsbury (@stevelikescups) February 16, 2018
Twitter user “Pillsbury” uploaded a video on February 16 with the caption “We tried getting the two for one special at black panther. The manager was not having it.”
The video shows two teens obviously stacked on top of one another in a giant trench coat. The top kid had a hat pulled over his eyes because nothing quite says “I’m a very tall adult” like hiding your eyes from any suspicious managers.
The video blew up and in the few short days that it’s been online, has gained over nine million views, 181, 705 retweets, and 448,001 likes to date.
Naturally, fellow Twitter users had a field day with the video. A full version was also uploaded!
Here's the full video hahaha #BlackPanther pic.twitter.com/SFlJ7o9b3i— Pillsbury (@stevelikescups) February 17, 2018

The original poster has also tagged Ellen Degeneres, so here’s to hoping they soon have a spot on her show!
Now, I know what you might be thinking: these guys are the only two who have ever pulled a stunt like this. Wrong! Back in 2016, Bo Johnson uploaded a video to his YouTube channel about how he snuck another friend into the theater with him in order to cash in on the two-for-one deal.
Bo and his friend Matthew posed as one man in order to get into the movie theater for a viewing of Avengers. Matthew wrapped himself around Bo and stuffed himself under his shirt to look like Bo’s stomach. Bo then put a sweater on to hide any remaining (and obvious) bulges and the two went on their merry way. The plan may have seemed far-fetched, but it went off without a hitch! The two got in no problem and were able to see their movie with nary an obstacle in their way.
Of course, there have also been people wise enough to sneak snacks into the theater using a baby seat as cover. (Seriously, though, who is trying to pay theater prices for coke and popcorn when you can just bring that from home?) They put a blanket over the baby seat to make it look like a sleeping child was under there when in reality there were just several bottles of pop and tons of snacks.

Though, it’s not only Marvel movies that people are desperate to sneak into. Have you ever thought about sneaking someone into a theme park? Good! Look no further than The Hacks of Life YouTube channel as he shows you some great hacks regarding how to get yourself into a theme park. Some of his genius ideas include bringing your friend on a baby stroller (thank you to babies everywhere for giving us the tools we need to get friends places), how to successfully cut in front of people for rides, and how to get yourself some grub through helpful “trading.”
The good news is that there are lots of people everywhere ready to give you tips on how to weasle your way through life’s little hassles. All you gotta do is look.
