Facebook PranksterThen he uploads it to his own profile and sends his same-name counterpart a friend request. Everything sounds pretty funny to the rest of us, but I think it’s safe to assume that those who got his friend requests were beyond creeped out.

According to Roy, the reactions he got were mostly along the lines of “What the hell?” or “Who the f*ck are you?”
