A group of cheeky Brits decided to have a bit of fun with the staff at London Stansted Airport (STN) on their way to a bachelor party — and lucky for us, it was all captured on camera.

After being asked to present his boarding pass, one of the travelers began unfolding a rather enormous piece of paper, as his friends sniggered in the background. The boarding pass, which was much bigger than the man's suitcase and about 16 times larger than a normal-sized boarding pass, elicited amusement from the airport staff, who thankfully had a sense of humor about the whole thing. In the video, one of the gate officials can be heard saying, "This is absolutely fantastic. Would you like to try and scan your boarding pass, Sir?" at which point, the man attempts to drape his massive boarding pass over the scanner. When the giant barcode ends up being nearly double the size of the scanner, the gate agent eventually stretches the gigantic document out on the floor and enters the man's credentials manually. Check out the video below to see how it all played out.
