trolling

Today in Twitter theater we have the story of Dave Holmes, an LA based writer and comedian who received a scam call from someone pretending to be from the IRS. Since he was at the beginning of a commute, Dave decided to go along with the scheme.

Content warning: some language ahead is as shady as a scam call.

David Spargo apparently really wanted to meet the band "Peking Duk," so much so that he was willing to poorly edit the band's Wikipedia entry in order to convince a security guy he belonged backstage. Lucky for him, it worked.



The ill-placed and poorly formatted "Family David Spargo" was legit enough to dupe a surprisingly gullible security guard into letting David past him, where he introduced himself to the band:

"We ended up having a bunch of beers with him and he was an absolute legend. He wasn’t a creep or anything. He was like the most normal dude we’ve ever met. That’s what makes it more hilarious."

Was it worth it? Absolutely. 



Would it work a second time? Probably not.
