Classic: Two Kids Dressed As Trench Coat Tall Man Try To Buy Single Ticket To Black Panther

February 19, 2018

This is a video of Twitter user Pillsbury and a friend trying to pull the classic trench coated tall man trick so both can watch Black Panther for the price of a single ticket. It does not work out for them. In their own words while I scrutinize the vide trying to figure out what gave them away:

We tried getting the two for one special at black panther. The manager was not having it.

A valiant effort, I'm not sure I would have caught on. Of course I'm nowhere near the most vigilant movie theater employee AMC has ever hired. "You got fired for trying to sleep in the popcorn machine." It was so warm and buttery in there.

Keep going for two different videos.

Thanks to hairless, Angie, and MG, who agrees they should have tried for the fat man trick instead.

    how is buying the ticket a problem? surely someone checks tickets after concessions

    ...And they would have gotten away with it too, if it were not for that meddling adult.

  • I was there when this happened. It was more impressive in person.

  • This might have worked better if the top kid had rode piggyback rather than sitting on his friend's shoulders and held a pillow to look like a belly. Still probably wouldn't have worked, but if the teller was in a rush or had bad vision, who knows? Still, cute that they actually tried this.

    I would have sold them a ticket for the effort alone.

    You and me both, that's awesome that someone actually tried this!

    The real two for one special is when you finish one movie and just go into another movie that's starting. It's important to plan ahead and make sure there's a movie starting soon after the first one ends. Going for a third one can make getting popcorn and soda refills tricky if employees start to get suspicious.

    ... And pay the lower senior rate, they never check for that on the stub.

  • Doog

    Oh shit, yeah that's a great idea! Just buy the tickets from the like kiosk things.

    You could alway sneak in Taco Bell into the theater in your shopping bags or purse -- it's yummy even when it's three movies in cold -- and everyone I know agrees.=)
