CasinoRoy Creates Confusion with His Fake Facebook Accounts

Reddit user CasinoRoy creates fake Facebook accounts trying to imitate other people's profile pictures. He looks up people who have the same name as him and dresses up like them, trying to recreate their profile pictures exactly. Then, he sends them friend requests to see their reaction.

Most people are freaked out by the potential psycho who seems to be obsessed with them, but I think CasinoRoy is more freaked out by the fact that there are so many people with the same name as him. His wigs, facial hair styling and calculated poses tend to point out the oddities in the original profile picture, emphasizing that even the 'candid' shots seem staged.

CasinoRoy's fake Facebook pranks show how some people take their profiles a bit too seriously.
