It's not uncommon for fans of celebrities or athletes to get duped into thinking they're hanging out with the real thing when they clearly aren't. It's simple: if you want to believe in something, your brain has a funny way of convincing yourself that what's happening is indeed real.

This one is pretty bad, though.

Milwaukee Bucks forward John Henson, who is 6-foot-11, apparently has a reasonably tall man pretending to be him and taking photos with unsuspecting fans, despite the fact they look nothing alike. Again, some people just want to believe.
