2 guys try 'tall man' trick to get into 'Black Panther'

(RNN) - Two cheap but creative young fellows went to new lengths - and heights - to avoid buying an extra ticket for "Black Panther."

The dynamic duo tried the "tall man" trick, with one sitting on the other's shoulders while wearing a comically large overcoat to hide. To no one's surprise, it didn't work.

"We tried getting the two for one special at (sic) black panther," said Twitter user @stevelikescups. "The manager was not having it."

Someone recorded their attempt and posted it to Twitter. Their exploits came up short when the man behind the ticket counter told them, "You’re gonna have to get down, man."

Stadium seats or no, you would not want to be the person sitting behind them at a movie.

Marvel Studio's "Black Panther" had the fifth-biggest opening of all time over the weekend, taking in $192 million.
