There are few things in life a dad loves more than figuring out hacks that can help them create easy and unconventional solutions to seemingly insurmountable problems. So when a dad couldn’t get reservations for his family at a nice restaurant, he decided to call back pretending to be the Prime Minister of Morocco. And to the surprise of his daughter, it totally worked and he ended up getting them a prime table.
In fact, the ruse may have worked a little too well, as he was asked by the chef to sign a plate during the meal and then the two took a picture together. His daughter filmed the whole thing and posted the video on Twitter, where it ended up going completely viral and has been viewed more than two-and-a-half million times in less than 48 hours since it was uploaded.
My dad wanted to make a reservation at a restaurant and they told him that they were completely booked, minutes later he called back claiming to be the prime minister of Morocco….. we got the best table in the place and the chef answer him to sign a plate and take a pic w him
Claiming to be the Prime Minister of a foreign country might seem like an odd way to try and score a table at a restaurant but, as Mashable pointed out, the dad actually does share a certain resemblance with Abdelilah Benkirane, who was the Prime Minister of Morocco from 2011-2017. Of course, that would also mean that the restaurant staff was also aware of who Benkirane was, which may be a stretch.
Was this dad aware of his doppelganger or did he just get lucky? We may never know but at least all dads out there know a great new hack to try the next time they are hoping to get a last-minute reservation at a fancy restaurant.
