Fake PSY Psyches Out Cannes Film Festival

Facebook.com/WonderfulPistachiosFor two days, "Psy" took Cannes by storm, posing for pics with celebs, hitting hot parties, booking DJ gigs, and enjoying the life of an international music star -- except it wasn't really him.

The New York Post reports a lookalike for the "Gangnam Style" and "Gentleman" performer, bodyguards in tow, hoodwinked attendees at the French film festival. Even more strange, he really isn't much of a dead ringer for the star, at least according to a pic snapped at the festival by Justin Bieber's manager Scooter Braun.

The real Psy re-tweeted the pic, posting, "Here the picture of  spotted by !!" and followed it with a hashtag revealing the star's real location: #realPSYinSINGAPORE.

A source who booked the fake star at one of the Cannes events finally realized his VIP wasn't the South Korean star only after getting in touch with Psy's record label. "We've been duped," the source admitted.
