As fans, it’s always an experience to meet your idols when you’re out and about. However, we can’t deny that sometimes, we can be a bit overwhelming. Celebrities may often resort to disguises to escape us. Some work, some don’t and some work too well.
While filming a new show, Edmond Leung (梁汉文) was spotted disguising himself as a staff member to escape the crowd. On the other hand, Michael Tse (謝天華) and Jerry Lamb (林晓峰) were sadly mistaken as part of the crowd by staff members.
The “Big Bay Area Brother (大湾区哥哥)” group was formed after their participation on the TV show “Call Me By Fire (披荆斩棘的哥哥)”. The group recently got together to record for a new show called “Night in Wan Chai (大湾仔的夜)”. However, they didn’t expect a crowd to form while they were filming.
While Jordan Chan (陳小春), Julian Cheung (张智霖) and Jerry were with the crowd, Edmond took the opportunity to slip away. He changed his clothes, disguised himself as a staff member and tried to leave quietly. Although it was a good plan, it didn’t pass muster. A few people in the audience recognised him and managed to snag a video of him squeezing through. The artist looked embarrassed about being caught.
After the filming was over, the staff decided to do their best to protect the group from the crowd. Unfortunately, this backfired. As the group was leaving, Michael and Jerry fell behind and a staff member mistook them as part of the crowd. As a result, he refused to let them pass.
Michael was dumbfounded at the treatment but Jerry took over. He placed an arm around Michael to protect him from the crowd and tried to push past the staff blocking them. Thankfully, the matter was soon cleared up and they were allowed through. Funnily enough, both Jerry and another staff member were seemingly worried about losing Michael in the crowd. They each grabbed him by the arm and moved him forward. This gave the impression of Michael being ‘kidnapped’.
It certainly sounds like the group is working hard to film “Night in Wan Chai”! We know the actors have been busy; after all Julian Cheung just recently ‘adopted’ rapper Bridge.
Hopefully the staff will take more care in protecting them. As for the staff member who didn’t recognise Michael and Jerry, well, we’re sure they were embarrassed too.
