With the help of a few friends brought in to pretend Thomas is a famous actor, Chill Hill was able to persuade "tons" of mall-goers that they were in the presence of someone notable.
The mall assigned us a security detail who escorted us everywhere and helped close stores for the supposed celebrity. They also took us through private corridors to avoid the frenzy.
There's a lot to be said about our society's pointless, ceaseless craving for the briefest brush with celebrity, but I'm too busy swooning over Thomas Elliot. He's the guy who fought that guy in Hunger Spider-Games I think.
