Last night I attend a spring mixer courtesy of an advertising vendor. There were a lot of artsy types floating about. As we chatted we were approached by a well dressed fella, who came over shook hands with all of us and proceeded to chit chat. Everyone in the group exchanged awkward glances; no one had any idea who he was.
Ten minutes later it was obvious, he wasn’t anyone. He was a real life event crasher. I watched him all night helping himself to the free booze and filling up on the tasty tapas, all whilst schmoozing various executives. It was very entertaining. Later he came back over and I congratulated him on his ruse. He explained that he does this often, occasionally he works, but mostly he finds events and has a great time. He even invited me out tomorrow to a CTV party.
How did I get picked up by a crasher and get invited to crash an event with him?
And why is it mildly tempting?
