Psy impersonator, Denis Carré Denis, who is a South Korean business consultant, appeared at the event while Psy performed in Italy on the same day.
Korean pop singer’s lookalike managed to dupe many celebrities at the F1 event, including David Hasselhoff and Britain's Got Talent judge Amanda Holden. Though Holden was dubious if she actually met Psy or not, as she tweeted:
Not sure if this guy is kosher?! Rumours circulating he was a fake? What do YOU think?! twitter.com/Amanda_Holden/…— OfficialAmandaHolden (@Amanda_Holden) May 27, 2013
David Hasselhoff on the other hand was sure that he met Psy’s imposter and not the real singer.
Was that really PSY ? I think not!! twitter.com/DavidHasselhof…— David Hasselhoff (@DavidHasselhoff) May 27, 2013
Carré’s trick was disclosed when Psy appeared on US talk showLive with Michael and Kelly, which was filmed in NY, While fake Psy was conning celebrities at Cannes.
PSY also tweeted to his fans about his imposter partying at the prestigious festival.
It seems that the Korean pop singer is now keeping a track of his imposter’s appearances as he again tweeted about his appearance at Monaco GP.
Here’s the video of real Psy talking about fake Psy:
This must be troublesome for the ‘Gangnam Style’ singer but the way he’s handling it is pretty awesome just like his songs.
So guys, next time if you spot Psy somewhere, make sure if he’s the real pop star or not. No one wants to end up tweeting photos with a fraud! Right?
