Coachella Hopefuls at USC Tricked Into Dressing Up in Costumes to Vie For Tickets That Didn't Exist

First nude sex on a campus rooftop. And now 50 unwitting students dressed in ridiculous costumes in the center of the school near high noon. USC is on a roll.
Yeah, turns out the Skull and Dagger club pulled its annual prank last week on fans who wanted to go to the sold-out, three-day Coachella festival in the desert.
A Facebook page announced 10 tickets would go to those who showed off the best getups. They were told ...
... to show up at 1 p.m. last Wednesday and gather near the Tommy Trojan statue on campus, according to the Daily Trojan newspaper.
And that they did -- all 50 of them. Dressed ridiculously. And no, there weren't tickets.
Instead, the ticket hopefuls were treated to the unfurling of a Skull and Dagger banner.
