Alex Rodriguez plays a prank on woman who said he looked like "the guys J.Lo's dating"
The former baseball player went along for the ride and stretched the prank before introducing himself to the bewildered fan
Alex Rodriguez can definitely be called a master prankster. The baseball legend shared a video on his Twitter account on Wednesday, playing a prank on a fan who was convinced that the he looked exactly like another celebrity: namely himself.
A-Rod was sitting outside with this particular fan at a workout studio, when the woman tried to make her case by bringing up photos on her phone of the 43-year-old former baseball star, and at one point, even directly held the pictures up to the baseball legend’s face.
“Yeah, A-Rod, Alex Rodriguez. There we go,” she said, to which A-Rod joked back, “Who’s that?” She responded, “That’s the guy that J.Lo is dating.” A-Rod humorously asked her, “You’re kidding me! And it looks like me?”
And the former baseball player didn't just stop there. It seemed like he was willing to go to some more length, even dabbling in some self-deprecating humor, to keep his practical joke with the fan alive for some more time.
In the video, it can be seen that the woman first showed the basketball legend a photo of him wearing pajamas, most likely one from his Christmas photos.
On seeing his photograph with Lopez from the couple's Christmas morning, A-Rod joked with sarcasm: “First of all, I would never wear pajamas that goofy, never. I mean, what a tool.” After which, the innocent fan declared that it was “not a good picture of him.”
Next, she showed A-Rod another picture of the former Yankee, to which he quipped, “Oh, that guy is handsome. What happened to the guy in the pajamas?” However, the jig was finally up when the NFL player got up and introduced himself as A-Rod on seeing how flustered and confused the woman was getting about his identity.
“Hey, nice to meet you!” he said, holding out his hand to the woman who was visibly taken aback at his presence. His hysterical prank comes on the heels of news that he and the 'Waiting For Tonight' singer are planning to sell off their $17 million New York City apartment, less than a year after buying it, to get a bigger place for their family.
“They need more space with the kids,” a friend of the couple told People of their three-bedroom spread in a luxury tower. “They love the building, but just need a bigger space than they originally thought.”
