A Bruno Mars lookalike sparked pandemonium  in the Colombian capital Bogotá as he flitted around the El Dorado International Airport and Gran Estación shopping centre, attracting swarms of fans along the way.

The "social experiment" conducted by a popular YouTuber, known as “Colombian Bruno Mars”, took place before the 24K Magic superstar’s concert at the Estadio El Campín in Bogotá yesterday.

The lookalike filmed the stunt for his YouTube channel, of course, first appearing at the airport with his assembled entourage.

Hordes of screaming fans swarmed him requesting photos and autographs.

After the airport prank, the YouTube personality said he saw a young woman trembling with emotion as she thought she was meeting the real hitmaker from Honolulu, Hawaii.

The lookalike then moved on to the bustling Gran Estación shopping mall where once again hysterical fans whipped themselves into a frenzy and followed the entourage around as they went about their business.

This wasn’t the first time a YouTuber deceived people by dressing up as a celeb. In October, a videographer called QPark hired an actor to walk around New York City as North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

Dressed as Kim Jong-un, the lookalike visited Trump Tower in search of US president Donald Trump, shocking residents in the elite skyscraper.

The video, 10 Hours of Walking in NYC as Kim Jong-un, has been viewed over 8 million times.

In April 19-year-old Krizz Solano fooled Beliebers by dressing up like their idol, Justin Bieber, as he walked through a shopping centre in Escazú, Costa Rica.
