Disguises are a staple of the undercover agent’s world. From elaborate prosthetics to subtle wardrobe tweaks, they’re a necessary tool for navigating the shadows. But what happens when a getup is so bizarre it ends up drawing too much attention? That’s exactly what happened in a recent episode of the venerable news program 60 Minutes.

 

The agent, who goes by the pseudonym “Carrie,” was interviewed about her experiences related to the mysterious Havana Syndrome—a condition reported by US government officials and military personnel. But it wasn’t her insights into the syndrome that captured the public’s attention; it was her cover-up.

 

“60 Minutes did a great job disguising their source,” tweeted journalist Olivia Nuzzi. “Nobody is ever going to be able to identify this woman.”

 

 

 

 

At first glance, “Carrie” appears to be channeling the pop superstar Lady Gaga. The voluminous blonde wig, reminiscent of Gaga’s iconic looks, is a bold choice for an FBI agent seeking anonymity.

 

 

Social media erupted with reactions, ranging from amusement to outright disbelief. Some users wondered why 60 Minutes didn’t simply blur her face, while others speculated about what “Carrie” might look like without the disguise.

 

 

One X (formerly Twitter) user aptly compared it to a Sia wig, suggesting that the costume department had taken inspiration from the enigmatic singer.

 

 

 

“Is this a parody of 60 Minutes?” asked another bewildered observer.

 

“Is Clark Kent their costume consultant?” pondered one viewer.

 

 

 

Do you think you’d recognize “Carrie” in real life?
