In what could be called a 'social experiment' or an exercise in attention-seeking, a New Yorker pulled a prank outside of Rockefeller Center last month simply by dressing up like a Jersey Shore-cast member on Oscar night and prancing through mid-town surrounded by assistants, bodyguards and photographers. Cameras caught the reaction from passer-bys and unsurprisingly, they swoon over the chance to be photographed next to a celeb...even if they have no idea who the hell he is. Margaret Meade he is not. But if his intent was to show that people are idiots, I guess he sort of pulled it off.
