87 Evil Geniuses Who Pretended To Be Someone Else And Got Away With It

We all want to find our identity. To capitalize on it. For some, it can take a lifetime. For others, mere seconds. Even if it doesn’t belong to them.

There is a subreddit called r/ActLikeYouBelong and it has 520K members. Why so many, you ask? It shares stories, pictures, and videos of people pretending to be someone they’re not!

Listen beautiful relax classics on our Youtube channel.

From a man posing as a delivery driver and stealing beer to a girl faking her way into a music festival as a photographer, you’ll be surprised how many of these evil geniuses get away with it, too.

#70 Painted This Mural Illegally During Daytime By Acting Like I Belonged

I put a plastic cover over the ground, installed a ladder and put on painting overalls. The mural is on a trail connecting two neighbourhoods so there were frequent passerby, people walking dogs, etc.. I basically ignored them and kept working calmly. Only one dude tried to call my bluff. He shouted something like ‘hey stop, what are you doing?’, but i didn’t look up and only turned around a few seconds later to pick up a different color, so he assumed i was legit.

#81 How To Attend E3 For Free Without Really Trying.

A few days before E3 we did some research on what the food/drink set up would be like. And decided that going in dressed as bartenders/general help would be the best route. We had most of the clothes, and a friend of mine loaned us the aprons.


Once we were inside we found out what the name of the catering service, and used that information to get a lady at a information booth to walk us through security. Unsurprisingly enough, a lady from a conference room asked to place an order with us, we took it and went to a kitchen nearby and gave the order to the kitchen manager. She questioned us a bit on who we were, but we didn’t break. Gave her our middle names in place of our first names (didn’t want to lie too much, I know weird) and went on our way. We tried to get into the Sony/Nintendo room, but was denied entry due to lack of conference badges, and almost got kicked out.


We almost gave up, but decided to go back the way we initially entered. Once we were back on the main floor, we figured why not try to get into the main conference room with Microsoft, Activision, Ubisoft, etc. If we couldn’t, we still had a great time. So we monitored the door and saw that out every five people entering the main room, only one person’s badge was getting scanned. So we casually got into a crowd of people and walked in. It was an amazing feeling being surrounded by the sets for games like Marvel vs. Capcom to Shadow of War. But most importantly we got to see the Destiny 2 set up and watch a bunch of gameplay. The best thing about all of this was getting to go on a fun/risky trip with one of my best friends and it only cost us a parking fee of $4 to attend E3 for free.
