Can you tell which one of these men is Lionel Messi?
Hint: The guy on the left is 25-year-old Iranian student Reza Parastesh
The Messi lookalike has become a star in his hometown of Hamedan
Since then, Reza has started trimming his hair and beard to look exactly like the Argentinian footballer, and people are taking notice
While driving around one day, he was surrounded by people wanting to take photos with him, a public disturbance which attracted the police
His car was impounded, and he was rushed to the nearest station
Thankfully, he was later set free, and has reportedly been offered modelling contracts and interviews since the incident
At least if Messi ever doesn’t feel like getting out of bed and needs someone to impersonate him for a day, he’ll know who to call
Watch Him in a Video:
