Who’s Your Doppelgänger?

January 29th, 2010 | 13 comments | Posted by Jen

It’s Doppelgänger Week on Facebook, a meme created by one Bob Patel–an Indian Tom Selleck-lookalike who I’m not convinced is real–and unlike so many Facebook memes, this one you might actually want to participate in, probably because it doesn’t involve divulging embarrassing, oversharesky details from your life to so-called “friends” who, alas, really don’t give a shit.

The idea is simple: replace your profile pic with one of your celebrity doppelgänger. And don’t be a party poop and be like, “I don’t have a doppelgänger, bah humbug” or “I’m Asian, I can only be Bruce Lee.” Facebook hasn’t been this much dumb fun since before my your mother joined, trust.

Here are our lookalikes:

Side-Pony Sistas

Chicks of a certain age will recognize my doppelgänger’s Claudia Kishi from The Baby-sitters Club. And yes, I’m aware she isn’t real, but oh how I wish she were, mostly so I could raid her closet and Single Yellow Female her much talked about style.

Then there’s Diana’s doppelgänger, transcending racial boundaries:

Di-e-sha!!!

WEIRD, right?

So who’s your doppelgänger? Tell us in the comments section. Don’t stop there…make it your avatar.

    Usually, I have problem with this kind of face recognition apps. If Diana transcend racial boundaries, I have doppelgängers with diferent races and genders o(><)o

    No app was used here. That takes all the fun out of it.

    I wanted to participate, but wanted to do it right. I uploaded a pic to myheritage celebrity look alike and it says I look like Alex Wek, the female model, a very beautiful woman. It can be an insult to her since I am dude

    I also uploaded to myheritage, and it said I look like Reese Witherspoon, which I take as a compliment. I would have put her for my profile pic, but I had just put the ultrasound pic of the little one in my belly up. Yes, I am one of THOSE moms!

    By the way, welcome back Jen!

    haha, cool, real cute pics, espicially the diane one, i always thought of her as a somewhat blackenese woman for some reason anyways :)

    People say I have a Jay Leno chin. How embarrassing!

  12. [...] Disgrasian promptly reminded us that its Doppelgänger Week on Facebook. If you want more info on what Doppelgänger is, I suggest you read Alex Grossman's interview on HuffPo. So what's Doppelgänger on Facebook? Do you remember that one time, on Facebook, where your Friends were updating their statuses with bra colors (mine was orange and teal BTW) ? Ya, Doppelgänger is something like that. But instead of updating your STATUS with bra colors, you change your PROFILE PICTURE to a celebrity you look like. Or, Doppelgänger. [...]
