Fans get pranked with bogus ticket fees and then rewarded with upgrades

Monday November 3rd, 2014

As the price of tickets creeps higher and higher, StubHub decided to have a little fun with some fans at a recent USC game, adding airline-style upcharges and fees to the standard ticket price.

Fans quickly become incredulous when they hear their ticket is only good for the first half, or that they will be charged extra for using the bathroom.

The prank comes with a big payoff for the victims however, as after messing with the ticketholders' heads for a little while, StubHub presents them with upgraded seats.

A pair of tickets on the 50-yard-line is probably the only way to make up for the heartbreak caused to the fan who was told he could not look at the cheerleaders during the game
