The “prank” has taken social media platform TikTok by storm, with videos of users dressed up trying to get alcohol and racking up millions of views.
“PSA: Use ur fakes as much as possible bc if you wear a mask they can’t see ur whole face lol,” one adolescent posted to her followers.
“Now that we have to wear masks, this is the best time to buy alcohol with a fake ID since the early ’80s,” stand-up comedian Jason Lawhead posted on Twitter.
“I hope lots of teens are out there illegally buying alcohol with face masks on, confidently not looking at all like their fake ID,” wrote @dannyfailure.
There are plenty of videos with teenagers being victorious in getting alcohol without being asked for ID.
“Oh, my God, it worked!” the poster says as the duo return to the car arm in arm carrying a handle of vodka.
“It’s too good, guys,” she said.
