Music icon Ed Sheeran surprised a few unsuspecting fans at London’s Leicester Square recently when he presented himself as an avatar and interacted with them.
In a video shared by the 30-year-old British music sensation in collaboration with social media publisher LADBible, a person wearing a black outfit from head to toe, with their head covered with a tablet is seen standing in the middle of Leicester Square on a busy day.
The person then approach different pairs of people. Ed Sheeran, who is sitting in a studio and monitoring the streets, instructs the person to stop before specific persons.
He first asks the “avatar man” to approach two girls who they thinks “might have heard” his songs. When the person is black greets them, the unsuspecting girls, confused, ask them who they are and if the voice they were hearing is from the person in black or if it was coming from the tablet attached. After a couple of wrong guesses (Tom Holland and Harry Styles), one of the girls unsurely says it could be Ed Sheeran.
