    Why do people think the 10 year challenge came about? Facial recognition people. How your body and face has changed and will continue to change..

  2. Put on a Groucho Marx mask and camo hat and you literally disappear.

  3. These techniques can be revealed now because they're extremely outdated and obsolete. This is an entertainment piece, we're on Youtube right now, not at a CIA employee briefing.

  4. I just gain weight and loss after every 6 months. This is going on for last 10 years. I am good at disguising myself.

  5. Dream job. Someone contact me about this type job💖💜💖💜💖💜💖💜💖💜love it

  6. Mission Impossible is real

  7. Thought she was gonna take off her mask or wig at the end! Lol

    Does anyone feel Hollywood does a better job at creating disguises?

  14. Watching this so I can use my Disguise Kit in D&D better, time to craft some sweet harmless old men identities.

    Her husband just died a few days ago weird.

  16. 01:07 – Too much hair, and very female eyes. This would've made me very suspicious right away.

  17. I'm european. I hold my cigarette and I stand the way she says americans do. I also hold the fork in my right hand. I don't put down the knife constantly, but I doubt all americans do either.

  18. Angelique says:

    Wow! I may start to double check on everyone I thought I knew

  19. stefbeno says:

    Where are subtitles ?

  20. But the disguised person doesn't look right. Her eyes make her look like a young woman.

  21. Okay, but who actually switches hands when eating? I’m not saying anything’s wrong with doing that, I’ve just never seen anyone actually do that.

  22. Brandi Mckay says:

    This is all fake wtf as if the CIA would put out a video like this, and for what “views” lmao not even 🤔

  23. Me as European its funny to see that the think hat "an european" do.
    Sadly enough here are not right…

    Most useful tip was about disguising your nationality in a foreign country. However, the quickest way to spot an American tourist is by their mouths. They smile more than most nationalities and their accent is most recognizable even when they try to mimic other accents or speak others languages. They also speak louder and have an air of entitlement and authority/confidence/happiness that makes them stick out in any crowd (no offence).
    So if Americans want to disguise (1)Stop smiling
    (2) Don't speak (those Rs always give you away)
    (3) Pretend like are not enjoying your day.
