Teens have always found creative ways to score booze, but Gen Z is taking it to a whole other level. According to the New York Post, kids have begun visiting liquor stores dressed up like grandmas wearing face masks. And the worst part: it’s working.
It may not be the smartest idea, but they’ve also gone to TikTok and other social media platforms to post video and brag about the successful pranks.
As comedian, Jason Lawhead wrote on Twitter, “Now that we have to wear masks, this is the best time to buy alcohol with a fake ID since the early 80’s…”
In one Tiktok video, with over two million views, one girl shows her transition turning into a grandma. She captioned the video, “Granny be looking a little different here. #prank #alcoholchallenge. In another, the girl twerks by the side of the road with the wine she’s scored.
