We’ve all been there. You call a restaurant to set up a last minute reservation only to find out they are completely booked. Most people would accept defeat and find a different place, but this legendary dad isn’t most people.
Twitter user @Ihab8knicks‘s dad tried to make a reservation at a completely booked restaurant while in Russia for the FIFA World Cup. After being denied a reservation, he called back minutes later, this time impersonating as the Prime Minister of Morocco.
It totally worked. And that’s not the craziest part.
Not only did they get the nicest table in the house, the chef also requested he sign a plate and take a photo with him. The man’s son captured the bit on video and posted on his Twitter:
