Real Madrid soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo is the 10th highest paid celebrity of 2015 and one of the most famous sports stars in the world, and there aren’t many people who would not recognize him.
So he played a little trick on the people of Madrid, Spain, by putting on a disguise—wearing a wig, body suit, and sunglasses—and went out on the streets of Madrid showing off his soccer skills and begging for money.
The disguise worked so well that no-one noticed Cristiano, and most people just ignored him and walked past.
Some people did stop and play a little kick around with him.
A young boy plays with the disguised Cristiano for a while and when they finish, Cristiano takes off his disguise, signs the soccer ball, and gives it to the young boy. You can see how excited and shocked the little boy is, and when everyone else around realizes it’s Cristiano Ronaldo, they all crowd him, get out their phones, and take pictures and call friends, telling them what had happened.
He sure fooled a lot of people. Maybe next time they see a stranger with really good soccer skills begging for money, they might take notice.
