Bar Do Bin Laden in Sao Paulo is run by Bin Laden look-a-like Ceará Francisco Helder Braga Fernandes, who renamed his bar soon after 9/11, as reported by The Guardian.
Before the former Al-Qaida leader was killed, and when a worldwide manhunt for the terrorist was still in force, Fernandes, a Sao Paulo resident since 1978, was spotted by an alarmed customer who promptly called the police.
On arrival, officers soon realised the look-a-likeness and rather than arresting him, instead posed for pictures.
Fernandes has since become something of a local celebrity having appeared on local TV, while his bar has become a hotspot for for local goths and metal fans.
And it seems Fernandes is not the only one in Brazil to bizarrely cash-in on Bin Laden’s infamy.
