A British prankster of Pakistani-origin recently pranked the Welsh city of Cardiff, by going shopping posing as a 'Saudi Prince'.

Sanaan Akhter, a popular online artist, is making headlines in the UK after he posted a video online of him shopping around Cardiff with his friends, as a fake wealthy Saudi prince Shaikh Sanaan, making ridiculous demands at luxury stores such as Apple and Rolex.


Flanked by his friends posing as his 'bodyguards' - the video starts off with Akhter visiting an Apple store, requesting to buy the whole store and offering free iPhones to everybody in the store.

"Free iPhones for everyone!," the generous 'prince' can be seen shouting in the video.


Akhter then proceeds to go hunting for a new Rolex watch, with a budget set at £6millon, and tells a barista at Starbucks that his father owns the coffee chain.

Dressed in traditional Arabic attire, a resident falls for the prank, believing that Akhter is a real prince and stop him for photos and a brief conversation - with the prankster's friend pretending to interpret her questions and comments in Arabic from English.

Sanaan, 20, makes videos for his Facebook page, Man Like Sanaan, as often as possible and said Sacha Baron Cohen, star of Ali G and Borat, has had a big influence on him.
