Quite a comment on our pop celebrity culture, this hilarious video shows a crowd in Times Square, NYC drooling over a fake celebrity. Brett Cohen is a regular dude who decided to take a stroll on the streets of Times Square, accompanied by two bodyguards, followed by paparazzi and assistants. As our celebrity walked the streets, there was an ever growing crowd of people following him eager to shake hands and have their pictures taken with him. The best part probably is when people are asked how they know Brett and they give awkward explanations; Spiderman does seem to be the majority vote here.
