Adam Savage and Alton Brown Incognito at Comic-Con 2015

Adam invites Alton Brown to join him on an Incognito walk through Comic-Con and check out the exhibit hall. For their disguises, the two choose to portray the Twins from The Matrix Reloaded, coordinating intentionally low-grade costumes to throw off fans. How long will it be before they’re recognized?

  1. I love that Adam is trying to throw off his fans with crappy (compared to his) costumes and he put some real thought into the execution but I do have to ask how many people are walking around the con with a video guy taping their every move? It seems like this would be a giveaway but I’ve never been to SDCC so I’m not sure if it’s ‘normal’ or not.

    Adam, love the twins and I especially loved the space suits with Commander Hadfield, I’m going to be building that water pack for a friend’s massive foam costume so he doesn’t die like last year’s con.

    Can’t wait to see what else Adam has on the workbench!

  2. I KNEW IT! At the beginning of the con, some site (don’t remember which) had pics of their “favorite” cosplay. I was flicking through them and saw a picture of Alton and Adam. I kept staring at it, thinking “that looks like Adam Savage and Alton Brown” — but you’d think the site would mention it.

    I’ve been waiting to see this video or pics to make sure I hadn’t gone crazy. Thanks for finally putting this up and easing my troubled mind.

  3. Norm and Joey should definitely dress up in costume if they’re going to film Adam Incognito. I suggest the Rescue Rangers.

  4. Or, now that we know that Norm is notdagreatbrain on Reddit, he should be The Brain and Joey should be Pinky.

  5. Next time, Norm/Will and Joey should follow a random masked stranger (with prior consent, of course) as a decoy while Adam is walking the floor.

  6. No costume is not hot?? I think some of those female costumes would disagree with that. But I guess those are hot in their own respect. This was a great!

  7. I now want to see how bad the licensed costumes are.

    The exact same thought I had. Those Slave Leia costumes certainly make a lot of geeks slightly toasty.

  8. Ha! These get better every year. And I’ll bet with Drew filming them that gave them two extra minutes without being spotted, lol.

  9. SDCC is so jam packed with people and people filming things that someone filming them wouldn’t give anything away.

  10. This is beautiful, I love that they had so much fun doing something so insane. Wow though, so glad Adam is getting others into the mix
    Edit: Shout out to Drew for being the incognito filmer! Though I’m guessing people who recognize Joey probably know who Drew is as well

  11. Great stuff and Im gladd you and Alton posted some instagram photos too. Norm should have but his account had nothing the whole time.
