Playing Even A Prop From 'Texas Chainsaw Massacre' Has to Go Through the TSA Scanner

This guy was "dying" to get a flight out of Atlanta.

A realistic-looking corpse that was actually a prop from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre could not avoid a TSA check when it passed through airport security over the weekend.

The prop was flying out of Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport and was forced to go on the TSA conveyor belt and have an X-ray.

The TSA agents were stunned by what they saw and couldn't resist posting about the peculiar situation on Instagram.


Talk about deadheading... This crusty ol' chap is actually a prop from the #TexasChainsawMassacre movie. He was brought through a checkpoint at the Atlanta (#ATL) International Airport, where as you can see, he was screened and sent on his jolly way. #TSAOnTheJob

The phony corpse was taken through security in a wheelchair and then placed on the belt for a scan.

There's no word on whether the prop had purchased a seat in first class or coach, but it would be quite unnerving to sit next to that for an entire flight.

While the lines at TSA checkpoints seem to get longer by the day, hopefully, travelers are not waiting too long that they look like that when they arrive at security.
