Obviously we LOVE everything celebrity at PerezHilton.com, but we have to KNOW who the heck a person is before we bestow that title upon them.
People in Virginia? Not so much!
Chill Hill Media unleashed this HIGHlarious prank/social experiment on unsuspecting shoppers at a popular mall in the southern state to test their hypothesis that the average person can't help squealing in excitement while in the presence of someone that they think MIGHT be famous.
Watch the video (above) and you'll see they were absolutely right! With the help of a few friends in on the joke, the group transformed Thomas Elliot into a celebrity for the day and had the entire mall asking for his autograph just because they heard he is "one of the people that fights" in Spider-Man or The Hunger Games.
