A recent visitor to Disney California Adventure encountered a Cast Member that created a lifelong memory for them in just a few moments! u/crherrick shared a video of a Disney Park Cast Member named David pretending to be a statue and then spooking the Guests by moving suddenly:

Anyone else have a run in with David, the CM statue? from Disneyland

The Guests joyfully laugh and scream before the video ends. The Guest said they wouldn’t be surprised if David is a “famous” Cast Member.

“This was outside Philharmagic a couple weeks ago. Video doesn’t do his act justice,” u/crherrick wrote. “Wife didn’t start filming until at least a few minutes after we saw him and he was in that pose alone when we first got there. Honestly can’t remember the last street performer I saw who did it better.”

According to the Guest, David stayed in that position for minutes just to get a convincing stare! That’s some dedication to making magic.
