Just in case you thought the world couldn’t get any weirder comes a shocking social media stunt.
Tik Tok teens are in the limelight again after coming up with a creative means of bagging alcohol.
While taking complete advantage of the pandemic, TikTok teens are capitalizing on a newfound glory for being served alcohol. And that’s because sellers have made wearing masks compulsory, before entering shops.
According to reports, teenagers disguised as old age grandparents are going out to buy alcohol. And the entire ordeal is part of a major social media ‘prank.’ Furthermore, that means getting your hands on several beers has never been easier than now.
A video showcasing a young girl adopting an old age Halloween costume has gone viral. Similarly, the video managed to obtain more than 2 million views in a single go.
The costume that was used in the video entails a grey colored wig, complete with gloves and glasses too. And the entire gimmick manages to grant her an appearance that’s equivalent to being 60 years old.
Meanwhile, the TikTok video features the girl walking out with bags of booze, as her friends parade around in celebration, while she pulls down her mask.
Similarly, another video, which has now been restricted as private, showcases a brunette teenager flaunting a headscarf, shades, makeup, and her mask while coming out of an alcohol store with red wine.
The clip was captioned as:
‘For legal purposes, this is my actual grandma,’
Above all, TikTok fans were treated by the video-sharing application when more users made public announcements about how convenient it is to get away with so much, thanks to the face mask.
One avid TikTok user claimed:
PSA: Use your fakes as much as possible because if you wear a mask, they can’t see your whole face lol.
Similarly, standup comedian, Jason Lawhead, also shared his lighthearted view on the matter:
‘Now that we have to wear masks, this is the best time to buy alcohol with a fake ID since the early 80s.’
While underage drinking shouldn’t be promoted at any cost, we’re grateful that they’re using masks to help curb the spread of the virus.
