New Delhi: Australian prime minister Scott Morrison’s election marketing campaign was interrupted by a doppelganger of North Korean chief Kim Jong Un. The look-alike of the North Korean dictator even talked to the media individuals gathered close to him and posed for pictures like a politician. The impersonator recognized himself by the stage title Howard X.
“Thank you very much. Gladys Liu is the communist candidate for Australia,” he mentioned earlier than he was interrupted by an aide to Morrison. “I support Gladys Liu,” he added earlier than he left the venue.
The disturbance created by the doppelganger appeared to be deliberate by the Queensland State senate candidate Drew Pavlou, who mentioned on social media that he was good associates with Howard X and it was “one of the best things we have ever managed.”
