This Guy Got Backstage Successfully By Editing a Wikipedia Page

The artists found out and still think he’s a legend.

Most concertgoers and music fans have tried to sneak into shows or backstage at one or more points in their lives. There is no one way to do it and sometimes you’ll have to get really creative. A man named David Spargo did so in one of the most creative ways we’ve ever heard. According to Australian electronic duo Peking Duk, Spargo went to the act’s Wikipedia page and edited it to say that he was a family member of theirs. He then showed it to security, who allowed him to go backstage and have a beer with the duo. Peking Duk eventually found out and commended him, calling him a legend on their Facebook page. Check it out below.
