You're in the Terracotta Army Now

I saw this on the BBC, genius.

A German art student briefly fooled police by posing as one of China's terracotta warriors at the heritage site in the ancient capital, Xian.

Pablo Wendel, made up like an ancient warrior, jumped into a pit showcasing the 2,200-year-old pottery soldiers and stood motionless for several minutes.

The 26-year-old was eventually spotted by police and removed from the scene.

Nobody seems to have a got an image of him standing amongst them though, which is a shame, although the Chinese journalists he obviously notified about it walked past him so we may not have been able to tell the difference.
