Two wily university students have shared footage of how easily they snuck past Super Bowl security at the New Orleans Superdome last Sunday.
Their reward was near-front-row seats just in time for Beyoncé's halftime performance — plus bragging rights on YouTube.
The pair, adopting the code names "Kobe" and "LeBron", used head-mounted cameras to chronicle their journey through underground tunnels and stairwells.
They glide past more than a dozen police officers manning a street barricade, sneak into a door by acting like they are wheeling in video equipment, and mingle in large groups before walking through doors that lead into the stadium field.
At one point one of the young men simply asks a security guard if they can cut around a line where a woman is heard shouting: "No credentials, no entry!"
They appear to be stopped only once, by a policewoman, but they just tell her they are filming a documentary and move on.
An NFL spokesman said the league is conducting a review of security measures on the night and "following up with the appropriate authorities in New Orleans."
