Neymar lookalike sings funk on Copacabana beach

He looks like Neymar, styles his hair like Neymar and can even play a bit of football, but Rio's Tiago Mendes wants to leave his lookalike career behind and start a more lucrative one as a funk artist.

Mendes was on Copacabana beach this week, recording a music video with a group of singers and dancers, all of whom are childhood friends.

People passing by were apparently impressed by Tiago's resemblance to Brazil's star player.
