Muammar Gaddafi lookalikes are well advised to stay cautious in public if the recent experiences of a doppelganger for Saddam Hussein are any guide. Mohamed Bishr was walking to a cafe in the Egyptian city of Alexandria when a group of three armed men forced him into the back of a van. He was beaten by the brigands, who sought …
Maybe have a shave?
I dunno - just saying...
"Bishr, a devout Muslim,"
Would you let your appearance define who you are? I'd hope to have this mans strengths to stand behind my own principles.
what i was thinking.
How's that going to help?
Or was Saddam a fan of the full brazilian?
Maybe it really is him
and they hanged the look-alike.
I dunno about shaving
but he should defiantly stop wearing the Iraqi military outfit.
I know - he shouldn't have to change his appearance, and it may be that his facial structure is just too similar to make much of a difference anyway. I fully applaud him standing by his beliefs and principles - that shows a substantial level of integrity.
Doesn't quite make the same soundbite quip though, does it? :)
Maybe not a shave..?
Perhaps grow a neatly-trimmed beard. Certainly not the 'wildman' beard that Saddam was wearing when captured.
I dont get it...
OK wanting him to make a video or something for them to make money by passing it off to the media...but why porn? Even more so to go to the effort of kidnapping the guy... Completely baffles me :S
There's no money to be made in the porn business.
Because it would be an instant debasement of Saddam Hussein in the eyes of the Muslim world. There's power to be had in destroying Saddam's memory, and that would do the job nicely. Nobody really cares much in the West if someone's videotaped shagging, but in Arab and Persian countries it's very, very different.
Re: Why porn?
Indeed. He can think his luck that a) they were not persistent to the point of using torture and b) that they hadn't lined up a bestiality/gay/necrophiliac/paedophiliac (add an idea here________) flick for his participation
add an idea here______
Necrophilia....I think we can guess the corpse.
Wish I looked like him...
Dammit, I just shaved.
Who wants to see a Saddam-alike in a porn film anyway?
Welcome to the internet
That is all.

Actually, that's Rule 34.

Actually, that's Rule 35. Read the article again.
What is the world cumming to?
Not Saddam porn, apparently.
For the moment at least.
Sounds like a terrible fate. Usually, the women in these films are carefully selected for their visual attributes. My sympathies to the gentleman involved for having to endure this terrible fate.

Stuff of Dreams
This guy gets the chance of a lifetime, with pay, and ... WTF?
Unfortunately I look nothing like him.
Come to think of it, I havent seen our local look-a-like for a few days, I just assumed his taxi was in for repairs but now.............
Missing element of the article
*blindfold comes off*
"You want me to do it with her?! She's a total minger!"
"You beardy bastard, that's my mum you're talking about!"
Oh, and a memo to Rory Bremner: be very worried if anyone dies. Absolutely anyone.
I look like Ron Jeremy
and I got kidnapped by a gang who wanted to make me the new president of Libya.
You are all assuming
that is was a woman on offer. Just saying.
That is all.
Maybe it was.
30 stone is a whole lotta woman.
with that mustache
Would he also be required to wear a leather cap and backless chaps?? Coat is already on and heading to the door....
That is all
So does that mean we should be looking for G.W. Bush porn, Tony Blair porn or even some Thatcher porn ?
I've been to Egypt...
...and there is definitely no shortage of men that look like Saddam Hussein. This bloke must be a really good lookalike.
Gay Saddam Porn?
Saddam Does San Francisco? The Black Hole of Saddam?? Saddam Takes a Baathist?
Ok! Ok!! I'm leaving already!!!
Could it be?
That it was actually gay porn? With "Saddam" doing the opening reception?
... got me coat...
