Cristiano Ronaldo may be one of the most recognizable soccer players in the world, but one New Yorker could not distinguish him from a different sort of celebrity. The New York Post reports that a restaurant-goer confused the Portuguese superstar with The Situation, the Jersey Shore reality TV personality.

"Oh, my God, it's The Situation!" a diner reportedly said as the former FIFA World Player of the Year strolled into the restaurant. Apparently Ronaldo's newborn son is not enough to inform the confused fan.
