It wouldn't be wrong to say that New York Fashion Week started with a bang. However, along with fashion walks and shows, there also come pranksters and protestors crashing the shows for attention, whether it's for good or bad.
A recent video from New York Fashion Week is going viral on social media. The video, with more than 6 million views, shows an imposter confidently strutting down the runway at New York Fashion Week.
This person was clad in a transparent trash bag and a pink shower cap. However, what was interesting was that no one in the audience was able to figure out that it was part of a prank and had nothing to do with the show.

Astonishingly, very few people in the crowd recognized that he was not a scheduled model for the event; rather, the crowd was cheering and enjoying the walk.
The imposter flawlessly navigated the fashion runway, drawing cheers and garnering the spotlight, until security eventually intervened and escorted him outside.
In the meantime, a few keen-eyed users managed to identify the man and recognized him as an internet personality named Fred Beyer. Fred boasts a substantial following, with over 65,000 followers on Instagram and nearly 300,000 subscribers on YouTube. He is known for sharing prank videos on his YouTube channel.
He also posted a story on his Instagram with the caption "Incoming Danger" as he teased about the ramp video that he will soon release on YouTube.
Interestingly, some Twitter users praised the act and even the outfit. Check out some reactions:
