Sneaking into the Oscars

(YouTube link)

In 1988, film students Jack Saltzberg and David Teitelbaum put on tuxedos and went down to the Academy Awards ceremony. They didn't have tickets or press passes, and never expected to actually get in, but the opportunity presented itself and they strolled in like they belonged there, and talked to stars along the red carpet. The footage they shot was later shown on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson. More recently, Vice interviewed David Teitelbaum about how the stunt came about, and what happened afterward. They got quite a bit of publicity out of it, which may or may not have helped his career in the industry. -via Metafilter
