According to the BBC, Parastesh looks so much like Messi that he was detained by police after causing a scene in the town of Hamaden.

Apparently, the Messi doppelgänger had so many people surrounding him for pictures and autographs that police had to detain him and impound his car to control a large crowd that had formed.

Paratesh didn’t always know he was Messi’s virtual twin. According to the AFP, it was his father who noticed the resemblance.

A hardcore fútbol fanatic, Parastesh’s father had him pose for a few photos in a Messi jersey. They sent the photos to a sports site, and they quickly replied to do an interview with him, reported the AFP.

Soon, Parastesh was soaking up all his newfound fame.

Eva Longoria Played James Corden’s New ‘Nuzzle Whaaa’ Game And She Was Not Expecting This

The Late Late Show with James Corden / YouTube

Eva Longoria joined James Corden on “The Late Late Show” and this time, there was no “Carpool Karaoke” involved. Longoria joined Corden and his other guests for a game called “Nuzzle Whaaa?” Here’s how it’s played: the guests and the host are blindfolded and they nuzzle random objects and try to guess what it is. The final nuzzle when to Longoria and it left her skin crawling.

During Eva Longoria’s first round of nuzzling, she was slow going and skeptical of what they had in store.

She was so jumpy that Corden accidentally grazed her during the nuzzle and it gave her quite the spook.

But she still got right in there to figure out what her face was rubbing.

Spoiler: Neither of them were able to guess that it was a disco ball.

Then came Longoria’s final chance to guess what she was nuzzling and the crowd went wild.

That is a lizard. Your eyes aren’t being crazy.

It made the rest of the guests very uncomfortable.

Nope. Nope. Nope. Nope. Nope. Nope. Nope.

It wasn’t long until Longoria realized that she was fully nuzzling a live animal, though she didn’t know what animal it was.

Her guesses included: a possum, a squirrel, a raccoon, and a rat

Unfortunately, she didn’t guess the right answer here either but she was shocked when it was finally revealed.

Longoria’s biggest concern after rubbing her head on the lizard was: “Does it bite?”
