“I’ve seen every single one of your movies,” said one lady to Thomas Cramer, 24, of Richmond. She asked Cramer, who was posing as Thomas Eliot the actor, to sign her tattoo of superheroes.

The star of the viral video joined CBS 6 on set tonight and shared that anecdote and more. He talked about the video's internet success and how his team duped a mall of people.

Cramer also talks about the video's implications that we are a celebrity-obsessed society.
