It appears Hannibal Buress pulled a bizarre stunt at the Spider-Man: Homecoming premiere on Wednesday in Los Angeles.

In now deleted tweets, the 34-year-old comedian posted on Wednesday that he needed a lookalike "with solid comedic timing" for an event that night. He also asked for pictures and offered $500. At the premiere, a man identified as Buress posed on the red carpet and even did interviews, though clearly, he wasn't the real Buress.

"I'm out here at the @SpiderManMovie premiere," Buress, who plays Coach Wilson in the film, tweeted along with a screenshot of the man. "In theaters July 8th."

Buress' lookalike has been identified as a man named Joe Carroll, who Instagrammed about the ruse.

"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. ... #standIn #bodyDouble #whichIsWhich #partyCrasher #redcarpet #weAllLookAlikeRight?," he wrote.

"Just crashed the red carpet as @hannibalburess," he later posted alongside a selfie on the red carpet.

Buress has since responded to the stunt, tweeting, "It's called extreme FOMO."
