Inspired by watching Dawn of the Dead....
Go to where the local hobo population spend long summer
evenings drinking cider and fighting invisible demons. Get
talking to the guy who looks like he might be the group leader
and offer his group a crate of beer and a few bottles of wine
if they do
a couple of hours work for you. Give them a
photograph of a person you want followed and tell them the
time he goes for lunch and where his office is. When they see
him they are simply to shuffle around after him making
moaning zombie noises until he freaks out and runs away. This
is particularly impressive he walks through any large shopping
||Likely to get the hobos in question arrested for disorderly conduct, or whatever the local statues call it, so you'll be needing to provide them bail money and come up with a really good excuse for yourself as well. And it won't work at all in that shopping mall, where the security guards are primed to eject panhandlers and winos.
||This is not invention, but a prank.
||Hobos as cheap labor is just a cheap shot. Make it an acting company that can be rented out and you've got something. Also, may I suggest Public:Evil since that seems to be the intent.
