Saddam Hussein Lookalike Was Almost Kidnapped And Forced To Star In A Porn Film

In what will almost certainly be the plot for a major Hollywood movie in the not too distant future, Saddam Hussein’s lookalike was attacked by a gang who then tried to kidnap him and wanted him to impersonate the dictator in a porn film. Wow.

Mohamed Bishr claims that the men proposed the idea to him peacefully at first, but, when he rejected it and the sum of $333,000 for his starring role, they decided to beat him. They had then planned to sell their video as exclusive erotic footage of the former leader.

The devout Muslim had been receiving threatening phone calls for weeks and then last weekend was leapt on in his home town of Alexandria by three men with black suits who then looked to get him into a vehicle.

“The three men, who had guns hanging from their belts, forced me out of my car and shoved me into a van, hitting my head,” Bishr told the Egyptian Al-Ahram newspaper from his hospital bed.

Witnesses to the incident have so far been too scared to report the unfathomable series of events, and the last thing the victim can remember is being thrown from a van and hitting his head on the pavement.

The doppelganger has had to live with the curse of looking like the former dictator for years and has been routinely assaulted by those looking to claim a reward for the deceased despot, and he has even moved four times because of the abuse. May we suggest, simply shaving off the beard?
