A fake "Gentleman" is crashing Cannes.

A man impersonating Korean popster PSY has managed to hoodwink Cannes Film Festival organizers and attendees and sneak into various parties and hotels events.

Per The Hollywood Reporter, the unidentified impostor has been seen about the Croisette wearing a blue and white blazer, white pants, turquoise tie and the "Gangnam Style" hitmaker's signature shades.

The getup helped him allegedly steal entry to the Martinez hotel as well as sneak into parties—a mission made easier by three security guards he hired with earpieces to follow him around as well as the various festivalgoers who posed for pictures with him. The faux PSY even duped Skyfall star Naomie Harris, who tweeted a pic of the two of them at the Chopard party.

It was only a matter of time before the fraudster's hijacks drew the attention of the real PSY, however, who tweeted: "Seems like there's another ME at cannes…say Hi to him."

The ever-dapper singer, who recently attended the Billboard Music Awards in the U.S. and is currently in Singapore, also posted a pic of his double partying in Cannes after being spotted by manager Scooter Braun.

It's good to know PSY's got a sense of humor about the whole thing. Maybe he'll use him for his next music video?
