This is awesome. If the six-page detailed write up is too time consuming, there’s a 4 minute summary video on page 6. But I think the beauty is in the details… humorous and well-written, I enjoyed every word.

The most ambitious prank in history. We hacked the Super Bowl.

You’re about to read a real-life heist story. Super Bowl XLI was a Level One national security event, usually reserved for Presidential inaugurations. We had to get two full vanloads of materials through federal marshals, Homeland Security agents, police, police dogs, bomb squads, ATF personnel, robots, and a five-ton state-of-the-art X-ray crane. It took four months and a dozen people to pull off the prank that ended up fooling the world. This is the Super Stunt.

Don’t just sit there. Well, unless you’re reading this…
