This guy's uncle went to Magaluf and everyone thought he was Morgan Freeman

We love a good case of mistaken identity and this latest tale might be one of the most hilarious yet.

Bedfordshire Twitter user Louis took to the microblogging website last night to share a selection of brilliant photos of his uncle Norman being mistaken for Hollywood actor Morgan Freeman during a recent trip to Magaluf.

Norman was confused for the Hollywood star.

Alongside the caption: “My uncle went Magaluf for a stag weekend and everyone thought he was Morgan Freeman”, Louis shared a selection of photos to prove his point – including one snap of a club that had projected an image of Freeman onto their walls alongside the message: “Morgan Freeman in the house @magaclubpass buy him a drink if you see him”.

Another taken from a Magaluf club’s Instgram account showed Norman posing alongside two excited partygoers with the caption: “#MorganFreeman #Magaluf”.


The final picture is a screenshot of a Facebook post from an excited Morgan Freeman fan, who’d posted a selfie with Norman and the status: “What a wicked end to the weekend, on a massive hangover and the No.1. God #MorganFreeman walks into The Red Lion Magaluf on the sly for a cheeky vodka Red Bull. Quality.”

Louis’ tweet quickly went viral, gaining over 15,000 retweets in less than 24 hours.

One club urged concertgoers to buy him a drink.

Acknowledging the hype, Louis joked that his uncle had “made it” adding that it was “f*cking mad”.

Norman himself is yet to comment.
