Clever Fan Edits a Band's Wikipedia Page to Get Past Security and Hang Out Backstage
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.
