mbs lookalike

A Saudi man who looks exactly like Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is causing quite the stir on social media. 

Footage of the doppelgänger, who has now been identified as Eissa Abu Shaiba Al Mutairi, has been going viral, with many mistaking him for being the young Saudi leader.

While this isn't the first time the crown prince's lookalike makes headlines online, this time he has gone completely viral and people are all there for it. 

Speaking to Al Mnatiq news site, Al Mutairi, who currently works in the special needs section of Riyadh's National King Fahed Library, said he wasn't trying to impersonate bin Salman. 

"The videos of me have gone viral spontaneously after people mistook me for being the crown prince. The amount of attention I've been getting reflects how popular and loved he is in the kingdom," he added. 

This is reportedly the first viral video of the lookalike

This footage first made the rounds online earlier in February but has now resurfaced on Twitter. 

Meet the lookalike

People completely lost it

"The resemblance is uncanny." 

Many actually thought Al Mutairi was the Crown Prince

"I swear he's such a good person, the Saudi crown prince makes a surprise visit to the deaf and mute in Riyadh. Look how happy they are." 

No one could tell them apart... so many had to actually point the fact out

"This is not the Crown Prince, it's his lookalike." 

"He looks like him, especially from a distance"

Not the only bin Salman doppelgänger?

"God creates forty people who bear an uncanny resemblance to each other."
