Fake Messi: Reza Parastesh, The Look-alike Of Leo Messi Who Slept With 23
Reza Parastesh, an Iranian man, made headlines in 2017 after impersonating former Barcelona forward Lionel Messi and sleeping with 23 women who thought he was the real thing.
How did Reza Parstesh pull off such an elaborate prank?
His father once presented him with a Barcelona shirt and asked him to pose with it. The end result was both incredible and hilarious.
Because of their resemblance, Parastesh even cut his hair and grew his beard like the Barcelona captain, heightening his likeness to Messi.
The image quickly went viral, earning Parastesh the nickname “fake Messi.”
