Sometime you gotta do what you gotta do even if that mean impersonating a foreign leader. Is this illegal? The father of Twitter user @Ihab8knicks didn’t care about little details like legalities. He wanted to eat and no one was going to stop him.
After calling a popular Russian restaurant and learning they were booked, @Ihab8knicks’ father simply waited a few moments and then called back and pretended to be Moroccan Prime Minister Saadeddine Othmani. Do prime ministers often call to make their own reservations? Either way, it worked. @Ihab8knicks posted a video showing his sneaky dad signing a plate and posing for pictures with the head chef at the restaurant.
They say it pays to know people in high places and, if you don’t, just impersonate them!
