Bono impersonator at the 2010 Namm Show

So an old high school friend of mine on Facebook posted on my wall that he met Bono at the 2010 Namm Show. I was like wow cool cant wait to see a pic. Well when I saw the pic I knew immediately that it was not Bono.

I did some research to see if he was even there and I came across this video.



And: Namm show Jan 16, 2010 - U2 Community Photo

How do you convince someone who is just a casual fan that it isnt Bono? I guess show him the comments.. but there arent that many comments from what I'm finding.

He's just going to have to believe your U2 authority.

Plus, Bono doesn't have a widow's peak in his hairline.

I actually think he looks like Bono. Of course there are dead giveaways like the voice and missing cleft, hair, etc. But to the average person who does not look at 7,000 pictures of him a day, I can see how they would be fooled.

I've never met him face to face, but I just can't stand him
He should definitely tell people he's an impersonator instead of letting them believe he's the real Bono

This is the only thing that really bothers me. I have no issues with impersonators generally and I dont 'hate' any of them. Celebrities get impersonated all the time, it can be fun or whatever, but to let people believe you are the real thing is definitely not cool. My friend was really excited about meeting him and and all his friends that commented on his pic were excited too. It sucked to have to burst his bubble.

I dont know what this event even was exactly but my friend also posted pictures with other celebrities (they looked like the real thing). You would think whoever was running this thing wouldn't want impersonators mixing in with real celebrities.

I must admit "that person" can really confuse people at the first sight - but just people - not real fans like us.


Sicy is right - to let people believe you are the real thing is definitely not cool. This is really sad!!

To be honest, he does, from the short bit of the video I watched.

Someone posted these pictures (that I posted in teh Misc thread too) and argued with me that Bono was really there as soon as I saw the pics I said that is NOT Bono! that person is still arguing with me Finally I said ok, you go ahead and believe you met Bono if it makes you feel good

Yeah Im sure a LOT of people thought they met the real thing yet very for them

Maybe, but this guy, and we all know who we're talking about here, just rubs me up the wrong way. The fact that he goes out of his way to delibrately fool people into believing he's Bono, just makes me mad as hell!
