Feb. 19 (UPI) -- A pair of California pranksters filmed their attempt to use a classic trench coat routine to get "two-for-one" tickets to Black Panther.
The video, posted to Twitter by user @stevelikescups, shows one fedora-wearing prankster sitting on the shoulders of another who is concealed by a long coat, a classic comedy routine made famous by The Little Rascals.
The unconvincing "tall man" elicits amused reactions from fellow customers waiting in line at the movie theater.
"We tried getting the two for one special at Black Panther. The manager was not having it," the tweet said.
The Twitter user said they were not successful in getting both men into the film with a single ticket.
"Nah, I don't know how but he knew something was up," the uploader said of the theater manager.
