Coby Persin of Model Pranksters was able to trick a large group of tourists in Times Square, with help from his friends, by making them all think that he was a very famous celebrity. His friends helped to hype up his arrival by posing as fake fans, a GQ photographer, paparazzi and a reporter. Professional dancer Doris Cano, who acted as Coby’s girlfriend, walked beside him as they swam through the crowds of mislead fans.

Coby made his entrance in the heart of times square 46 and 8th ave. He rolled up in a black 8 passenger suburban. He had fake GQ magazine covers with his face and name on the cover so it looked like Coby was on the cover of GQ magazine.
