You have absolutely got to hand it to Australian artist/filmmaker and ‘Ye fan Jeremy Koren.
At Coachella last weekend, the 35-year-old Sydneysider (who has recently worked on clips with Gretta Ray, Odette and Ruel, and also goes by hip hop moniker Grey Ghost) binned the better-known ‘polarfleece and hi-hiz’ method of backstage sneakery in favour of the ‘simply buy official Kanye merchandise and happy-clap your way past security by smooshing in with the rest of the choir’ approach, to get himself in the VVVVVIP area for Kanye West’s enormous Sunday Service set.
“I’m an imposter right here… there’s Childish Gambino over there,” he says with REMARKABLE calm, and goes on to detail the entire experience in the post caption: “Craziest and most hilarious day of my life,” he says. “Ended up hanging alongside Kanye, Chance The Rapper & Kim K & then got to meet my biggest idol Donald Glover (who was as gracious and cool as you’d expect)… Pretty glad I bought that expensive ass merch bahahaha.”

This time one week ago – Kanye’s Sunday Service at Coachella. Craziest and most hilarious day of my life. Here’s how it went down: woke at 5:30am, got thru the gates as they opened. Spent a packet on the Church Merch dusty custom top & bottoms. Watched the show in the guest area standing next to the entire Kardashians, Jayden & Willow Smith, Justin Bieber & Idris Elba lol. Then after the show I realised that security were pushing back everyone except the band/choir whose outfits were all pretty much the same as the Merch I bought. So I put that shit on quick smart and literally danced into the backstage area with the choir as if I was part of the show. Ended up hanging alongside Kanye, Chance The Rapper & Kim K & then got to meet my biggest idol Donald Glover (who was as gracious and cool as you’d expect). I hung out got photos as if I was part of the choir, poured myself a champagne, grabbed a bagel and peaced the fuck out. Pretty glad I bought that expensive ass merch bahahaha.
