TL;DR Thanks to the power of the internet one of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's look-alike surfaced, Salam Maftoon is a popular contestant on an Afghan talent show called 'Afghan Star.'

I'm not going to lie, I can definitely see it.

The dark thick head of perfectly wavy hair, bushy dark eyebrows, the strong angled jaw and schnoz; if  Salam Maftoon took off his traditional Afghan dress and swapped it for a suit and tie, he could easily work as Trudeau's stand-in.
