WATCH: This vlogger sneaks into the 2017 Emmy Awards and mingles with the stars

A Welsh vlogger pulled off an impressive stunt this week, when he managed to slip into the official Emmys after-party.

Simon Wilson posed as an Associated Press photographer and managed to blag his way into the exclusive event, dodging the $100,000 entry fee.

Wilson filmed himself approaching the security team and wrangling a press pass, before posting the footage to his You Tube channel.

He pulled off the stunt just weeks after he managed to slip into the highly anticipated fight between Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather in Las Vegas, securing a seat worth thousands of dollars.

Wilson posted footage of stars in attendance, including Thandie Newton and James Cordon, and even got the chance to hold an Emmy.

He told the Press Association: “It wasn’t easy, I’m not going to lie. The place was like Fort Knox but I wasn’t giving up, that’s for sure.

“If I can inspire anyone to go out there to do what they want, I’d be really happy as the moral of all my sneaking in videos is that anything is achievable.”

Wilson has been vlogging since January 2017 and describes himself as an "entrepreneur" who is hoping to expand his channel's reach.
