Super Bowl security was as effective as the Superdome power grid. That’s the main takeaway from a viral video that chronicles two Savannah State University students sneaking into the game last week.

The young men recorded their undercover efforts and recently posted the clip on YouTube. They snuck past numerous security personnel to get into the stadium in time for Beyonce’s halftime performance.

To start, they walked past more than a dozen police officers who were manning a street barricade, drawing almost no attention to themselves. It proves that acting like you belong is always an effective way of fitting in. Later, they navigated tunnels, snuck into a door by acting like they were wheeling in video equipment and mingled in large groups before casually walking through doors that led to the field.

The whole thing was way too easy.

When tickets run $1,500 a pop, the temptation is understandable. The decision to record the affair and tease a future release of more footage (as was teased at the end of the video) makes less sense.
