Fake Obama Visits Times Square And Tricks Tourists In This Hilarious Prank

Nothing to see here, just President Barack Obama going for a casual stroll across Times Square with his entourage in tow. Well, not the actual president but a fake one—a look-alike called Bronx Obama—but that doesn't stop the crowds from coming out en-masse.

And it's an epic undertaking by YouTube pranksters Maxman.tv as they troll New York, organise a motorcade, negotiate with suspicious cops, and finally deliver the fake POTUS to the chanting patriotic crowds—and it looks like it was totally worth it.

Thank God no one tried to assassinate him though.
