Two kids decided they wanted to go to the new Marvel superhero film “Black Panther,” but they didn’t want to pay for two movie tickets, so they tried to dupe the movie theater’s manager.
The duo went to the theater disguised as one “tall man” under a trench coat, but unsurprisingly, their plan didn’t work. However, despite their unsuccessful attempt to save on movie tickets, they have gone viral on Twitter thanks to their hilarious antics.
A Twitter user going by the name of Pillsbury tweeted a video of the charade, captioning it, “We tried getting the two for one special at black panther. The manager was not having it.”

We can’t imagine why the manager didn’t fall for their charade…
People on Twitter, on the other hand, were eating up their hilarious attempt to get a two-for-one special, and the video has now been viewed nearly four million times.

Some people couldn’t help but point out their disguise’s similarity to Inspector Gadget and a character from Netflix’s “BoJack Horseman” named Vincent Adultman.
