Steve Aoki is not to be upstaged. Presumably when the cake-throwing DJ discovered that Perth-based photographer Jarrad Seng was heading out trolling Stereosonic crowds pretending to be him, he needed to get in on the action and did so at the expense of fans at the Melbourne leg of the festival.
As you can see in the video below, as part of a “social experiment”, fresh from trolling Perth punters fake Aoki threw back on his Aoki-esque shades and clothes and took to the Melbourne festival site to take photos with excited festival-goers, all while real life Aoki tagged along disguised as the photographer.
While a couple of the punters recognised Seng as the fake version of the DJ, not many recognised the man behind the camera, including What So Not‘s Emoh Instead. “I fucking got him,” exclaimed a thrilled Aoki, the real one. Skrillex, though, could not be fooled.
