Woman sends Stripper to 10 year school reunion.
Andrea Wachner sent an erotic dancer, named Cricket, to impersonate her
at her ten year high school reunion. The dancer wore a hidden ear piece
to stay in communication with Wachner. A film crew was on the scene
pretending to film a documentary about artists, including Wachner. Of
course, they were really documenting Wachner’s brilliant prank. When
she posted clips to YouTube, some of her classmates weren’t too happy
they’d been duped. Now Wachner has a manager shopping her story as a
reality show or feature film. From ABC News:
Cricket told the reunion attendees that she’d had
reconstructive surgery and also suffered from amnesia. It wasn’t
completely unbelievable, because some had already heard that the
real-life Wachner was in an accident after high school — her car was
totaled and she had been injured, but she had never suffered from
Most of them had not seen or talked to Wachner since high
school, but many found her new profession suspect: Cricket as Andrea
said she was working as a stripper to help pay her graduate school
Daniel Wolowicz, 32, who had been an acquaintance of Wachner’s in high school, said he was immediately suspicious.
“She was just so different. You have to understand the
community we had come from,” he said. “Everyone was questioning who
this person was.
“I had asked her a very specific question about seeing her at
a bat mitzvah when I was 15 years old,” he said. When Cricket answered
his question correctly, Wolowicz said he assumed it was Andrea or
“someone else who had been given a lot of information.”
It would be awhile, however, before he learned the full truth.
As the night progressed the drinks flowed, and Cricket, always
outgoing, was getting ready for the climax of the evening: a striptease
performed to what Cricket described as “one of the worst songs of the
’90s,” Lisa Loeb’s “Stay.”
