Hannibal Buress is either a comedic genius or the laziest person alive.
On Wednesday, the Broad City actor took to Twitter and requested leads for a “lookalike with solid comedic timing for an event.” Well, it appears the event the 34-year-old was talking about was the El Lay premiere of Spider-Man: Homecoming.
And although the funny man has a role in the highly anticipated summer blockbuster, Hannibal either didn’t feel like attending the Tinseltown event or just couldn’t make it as he sent a doppelg├â┬ñnger in his place. HIGHlarious!
Not only did Buress 2.0 hit the red carpet, but he also did INTERVIEWS with the press. The stand-up expert revealed the switcheroo on social media as he shared:
(Please note Spider-Man: Homecoming actually hits theaters on July 7.)
We’re dying. When called out for the stunt online, Hannibal clapped back with claims that the bit was a form of “extreme FOMO.” AH-Mazing!
And Hannibal’s stand in, named Joe Carroll, certainly had a good time as he took to Instagram and dished:
When @hannibalburess hits you up and tells you to crash the red carpet since he couldn’t make it…. You crash the damn red carpet.

LOLz. Alongside the pic (above), Joe quipped:
“Just crashed the red carpet as @hannibalburess #standIn #bodyDouble #whichIsWhich#partyCrasher #redcarpet #weAllLookAlikeRight?”
We have a feeling Hannibal was just trying to one up the Starbucks Spider-Man prank that went viral earlier in the week. HA!
