What does a pyrotechnics engineer get on his birthday?
A magnificent exploding cake prank, of course.
In a genius -- and also horrifying -- social experiment, not-famous Thomas Elliot donned a hoodie and some buddies for a Saturday outing at a Virginia mall. Before long, his entourage was being escorted by mall security and trailed by "fans," and several stores even closed their doors for private shopping. The video "is just a taste of all the autographs, pictures, and people who wanted get close to all the commotion."
