KHON KAEN: -- An unidentified westerner duped the owners of a restaurant in Isaan into thinking he was Tom Cruise - despite only having a slight resemblance to the Hollywood star.

 

The image of the westerner which took pride and place on the wall of the the traditional som tam and chicken spot in Khao Suan Kwang, Khon Kaen was even captioned “Tom Cruise”.

File photo: Tom Cruise

 

The image was shared by a user on Reddit who wrote: “Someone pretended to be Tom Cruise in a small chicken shop in North Eastern Thailand and is remembered there forever. It has a couple of same sized posters of the owner and actual stars from Thailand.”

 

Another person commenting in the thread also said he claimed to be actor James McAvoy in order to get free stuff off Thai street vendors.


“My friends joke I look like James McAvoy and told a Thai guy at a pancake stall I was him after he said he loved X-Men, he believed them and gave me my pancake on the house. The guilt haunts me to this day,” the poster said.

Next time I visit Khon Kaen I'll pretend to be Groucho Marx. Let's see if that works to get some freebies, too.
