For YouTuber Zac Alsop, it meant a VIP backstage experience at the Conor McGregor-Floyd Mayweather press conference in London by posing as a member of McGregor's crew.

In a video posted Saturday, Alsop detailed how he pulled off his scheme to sneak into SSE Wembley Arena and walk out with McGregor himself. It was astounding how easily the plan worked for Alsop.

Alsop searched through Instagram for a look at the real world tour credentials. After finding a mostly clear view of the promoter credentials on Instagram, Alsop was able to piece together a passable credential (both guest and promoter) on Photoshop and purchased a laminator to make the credentials look official. This is why most events threaten to revoke credentials if they're posted on social media - it is surprisingly easy to sneak into major events.

He dressed the part, wearing a suit and earpiece. And got into the venue by walking closely to Mayweather's crew and simply acting like he belonged.

After journeying through the bowels of SSE Wembley Arena, Alsop eventually found himself in the tunnel directly next to McGregor during the walkout. Seriously, it worked.

Last year, Alsop posed as a Great Britain Olympic athlete and took part in the team's parade. He's very good at this kind of thing.
