CARSON, Ca. — Two kids eager to see Marvel's "Black Panther" reached into their creative pockets to try to get a discounted price for admission over the weekend. And the attempt went viral.
Twitter user Pillsbury posted a video Friday showing himself and a friend disguised as a "tall man" at a movie theater. The pair wore a trenchcoat and a hat, with one kid on the other's shoulders. Their look, which made them noticeably taller than anyone else in line, garnered laughs and attention from bystanders.
The ticket counter attendant, however, found it less amusing.
"We tried getting the two for one special at black panther [sic]," said Pillsbury. "The manager was not having it."
"Black Panther" opened to massive numbers, projected to earn $218 million over the four-day Presidents Day holiday weekend.
