In his latest video, French actor and prankster Gonzague attempts the Bodyguard Challenge.

Unlike the ubiquitous challenges that pepper YouTube, such as the cinnamon challenge, this challenge requires some real life situations that are hard to come by.

Such as an elaborate VIP party hosted for big time celebrities.

For the self imposed challenge, Gonzague attended the Cannes Film Festival in Paris, France just as celebrities were making their way to the VIP party.

Naturally, the celebs were surrounded by many bodyguards, so he simply joined the circle of men, and acted tough and professional, telling people to watch out for his famous client.

And just like that, he was swept away with the rest of the VIP’s into the party.

“I just got in with Gwyneth Paltrow,” he says into his secret mic with a look of surprise on his face.

“I’m Gwyneth Paltrow’s new bodyguard! Challenge succeeded!”
