This can only be described as pure flashmob brilliance. A group of people stood outside Otakon 2014 dressed in cosplay as a line from the 2014 Anime Expo in Los Angeles. Talk about meta!

The group of people at Otakon were dressed as a fake line waiting for a panel on the The Irregular at Magic High School, and the idea worked so well, that more people started waiting in the line thinking it was for Mahouka.

I can't even begin to imagine how confused Otakon attendees waiting in the fake line were, and I really want to know at what point did everyone finally realize they were waiting for nothing. Apparently, when those waiting in the line found out everything was fake, they were very upset. I hope they at least acknowledged that it's pretty dang funny.
