Def Leppard, David Bowie and Dopplegangers

I am intrigued by dopplegangers (That means people who have a look-a-like, famous or otherwise. Geez, get your mind out of the gutter.) Maybe it's because I'm a twin, maybe it's because I read too much US Weekly and People Magazine, but either way the other day I saw one that almost made me fall out of my chair I was laughing so hard. Yep, the amazing yet terrifying one featured above in Fig. 1: Tilda Swinton and David Bowie.

My twin sister Jen is a contributing writer for a blog called, and she has a feature called The Lineup that features a new list every Friday of great pop culture info. This week, stumped for a topic to blog on, she sought me out for inspiration/ideas. Having just discovered that Tilda and Ziggy were long-lost twins seperated at birth apparently, I suggested a list of hilarious celebrity dopplegangers [see Fig. 2]. The end result is here. Enjoy!

On my iPod: Def Leppard's "Rock of Ages"

Watch the sweet video for it here and notice how much it resembles Spinal Tap. Interviewed Phil Collen, Def Leppard's guitarist, today and he even verified that the similarities were uncanny. Steve Clark even has the profile of Nigel Tuffnel now that I look at it. Wierd.


  1. Only difference between those dopplegangers at the top is that Asian ladies aren't crazy for getting a piece of Tilda Swinton. Haha.

  2. haha, props jordan. ames, thanks for the tip, the blog went freakin viral!

  3. Touche Jordan! But really, does anyone want a piece of Tilda? Oooooo!

    And the blog went viral Jen? High five!
