Man who confused stranger for famous football player gets shock of a lifetime
It's not an uncommon phenomenon to mistake a passerby for their celebrity doppleganger-- most of the time, we're able to realize our mistake in time to stop ourselves from fangirling over a stranger and asking them for an autograph.
However, three workers at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport were so excited to have just met Seahawks star cornerback Richard Sherman that they quickly shared it on Facebook without realizing their glaring mistake: It wasn't Sherman. Even more embarrassing, it was another A-List celebrity.

It's understandable how Linien Cabanada mistook "No Hands" rapper Waka Flocka Flame for the famous footballer-- Waka and Sherman do in fact have some similar physical features. Both the rapper and footballer sport the same shoulder-length dreadlocks, are both 6'3"... and that's kind of it. See for yourselves:
If you've never really stopped to look at a photo of either man before, it's an innocent mistake.
Embarrassed when someone pointed out his mistake, Cabanada eventually went back to update his post, but thanks to Facebook's "Edit History," you can still see it here:
Honestly, both men are extremely accomplished in their respective career paths. Wouldn't be too bad to be mistaken for either!
