Identical Twins Prank Dad After 18 Months Away From Home
A son returning to the US after almost two years abroad switched outfits with his identical twin brother so he could surprise their unsuspecting father. Musa Abdul-Aleem, 33, from Atlanta, Georgia, had not seen his father, Rashad, 65, for a couple of years while living in Qatar before the coronavirus hit. As part of the prank - which left Rashad yelling in shock - Musa even went as far as to bring his nephew, Zaire, 2, into the fun and games by holding him as he rang the doorbell. The moment marked somewhat of a milestone for the twins, who said that for more than 30 years they have been trying to prank their father with their likeness but had never succeeded. With travel routes starting to open back up, Musa flew into Orlando, Florida, on April 13 where his father and twin brother, Muhammad, are now based. Musa then met Muhammad and switched outfits with him, also removing distinguishing features like glasses. After answering the door, Rashad didn’t suspect a thing, chatting to his son and playing with his grandson before closing the door behind them. At that point, Muhammad, who had been filming the moment from afar, walked up the path and in through the front door. Rashad immediately shouted "Musa" and ran towards the wrong son before the realization hit. The beloved dad then let out screams of joy and shock with his sons laughing at his reaction as he pointed toward each of them in confusion.
