Young Asian Man Gets Past Airport Security in Old-White-Man Mask


CNN has access to a leaked Canada Border Services Agency report about an incident involving a young Asian man seeking refugee status. The individual boarded Air Canada flight AC018 from Hong Kong to Vancouver dressed as an elderly white man in a grandpa sweater, cap, and facial disguise. During the flight, he emerged from the bathroom as, well, himself. Very little about this story makes sense to us. Why did no one wonder how the old guy from Up was able to take human form? What’s going on with airport security that they can find a bomb in your underwear, but can’t spot a Halloween costume? But we do know one thing: If you’re going to commit to a silicone face and neck mask of a man 50-some years your senior, you can’t forget about the hands.
