If you watched the Golden State Warriors season opener on Tuesday night, you know guard Klay Thompson has a long-lost twin.

Meet “Fake Klay.”

With a resemblance to Thompson, YouTuber Big Daws created a video on Tuesday documenting his trip to Oracle Arena for the Warriors home opener against the Houston Rockets.

🙏🏼 You the real MVP. Let's catch a game of 1 V 1 🏀 Loser has to dress like the winner for a week— Daws (@BigDawsTv) October 19, 2017

Big Daws’ video of his day as Fake Klay starts by meeting fans in the Bay Area then moves to sneaking his way into player parking and the row behind the Warriors bench during Tuesday’s game.

Some of the language in the video is NSFW:

Warriors coach Steve Kerr said he saw Fake Klay about two hours before the Warriors season opener and thought it was hilarious.

"I thought it was a perfect metaphor for our conditioning level..."Kerr joked to media on Wednesday. "I turned around and was like, "Klay, what are you- did you have a few extra burgers last night? What happened?' That was great. I loved that guy."

Here’s a close up of Fake Klay in action behind the Warriors’ bench:

Fake Klay even made it into the Warriors team photo after the team received their NBA Championship rings on Tuesday night.

The Warriors next home game is on Oct. 25 at 10:30 p.m. ET against the Toronto Raptors.
