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:


WEIRD, right?

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

Racial Drag Queen

This photo was taken on my last night in Kigali, Rwanda (although I’m told the outfit is Senegalese):

And, no, this was not my idea.

Merci, Blaise!

SPORTS ILLUSTRASIAN: The Stream-of-Consciousness Edition

Okay. Let’s start with playoff baseball. The first round resulted in 3 sweeps, one 4-game division series. Here I am at Game 3 Angels vs. Red Sox looking like a total bitch (on national television!), but really I was jittery and nervous, even though the Sox were up by 6 runs at that point. We went on to sweep the Angels that day. Phew…After flaming out with the New Yawk Mets, Kaz “The Other Less Famous” Matsui has found new life with the Colorado Rockies. Must be that mountain air or getting as far the fuck away from Alyssa Milano as possible. Matsui hit his first career grand slam in game 2 against the Phillies. Congratulasians, Kaz! The Rockies have moved on to the NLCS against ArizzZzzzzona. Still, I couldn’t care less about the National League…One of the weirdest things happened during the 8th inning in game 2 between Cleveland and New York that I’ve ever seen in baseball. A biblical swarm of flies descended on Cleveland’s Jacobs Field, clustering around the pitcher’s mound. Joba the Hut Chamberlain, who was brought in to relieve Pettitte after a spectacular outing, pitched a phenomenal 7th but lost his shit in the 8th because he was literally covered in flies (midges, to be exact). He walked Grady Sizemore to start out the inning, while the Yanks were up 1-0, and Sizemore would eventually tie the game on a wild pitch from Joba. The Indians went on to win 2-1 in the 11th. Guess God wasn’t listening that night to the fat fuck…Things that make me sad–that Marion Jones used steroids (I know, I know, it was obvious) and that Joe Torre may be fired as the Yankees manager…As a Cowboys fan groomed in the 80′s, I’m not getting my panties in a bunch about their 5-0 record. SportsCenter reported that the last time the Cowboys started 5-0 was in 1983. Know what happened that year? Nu-thing. The Raiders were still in LA and they won the Super Bowl. Dallas’ Monday Night game against Buffalo was like watching escaped asylum patients play some demented version of football. Tony Roma had 4 INTs in the first half, 5 in all and 1 fumble. He doesn’t earn the name “Romo” until he proves he’s more than just a likable guy with a pretty good arm…Venus Williams won the Korean Open a few weeks ago, which means she got to be…a Racial Drag Queen for a day! She’s a good sport to accept this trophy in traditional Korean garb, but I wouldn’t say she’s rockin’ the hanbok.

Swedish pop superstar Robyn’s new self-titled album was recently released in the UK on her label Konichiwa Records (an homage to Dave Chappelle’s “Racial Draft” bit), and it rules. Watch her rock this hilarious video for “Konichiwa Bitches,” the LP’s plucky hip-hop single.
