I’ve written a lot about the Getty image lookalike who is robbing me of the profits from my face.

Yes, I got my own back at Cannes, but he seems to be doing a lot better than me in earning cash from my ugliness.

But recently I was sent something that is even more unnerving.

Someone who looks even more like me than Getty man … and he looks so like me that my wife actually once mistook him for me.

Or that’s her excuse anyway.

If you think your Monday is bad, imagine how this guy in the band ‘In Deed’ will feel when he discovers he looks like me. Worse, that we also both play the guitar. Your worst nightmare?

Indeed …

The only advantage to having to get up super early to catch a flight to Amsterdam is I can be the first to comment on my own blog post. That’s how bad this Monday is already.

Which means there’s unlucky and there’s Rob doppelgänger unlucky.

Imagine what the musician guy feels about it.

Getty image man. Now this. You’re being greedy with your lookalikes Robert.

Comment by Lee Hill

Comment by andy@cynic

I wonder if his friends send him photos of you and talk about his doppelgänger?

Comment by Pete

He seems very popular.

Comment by John

if he thought he had problems before the fucker has just realised he was living on easy street till he found this shit out.

I remember Attack of the Clone where the stormtroopers were all clones of Jango Feet. I’m genuinely afraid there is some plot to take over the world by cloning Rob.

Comment by Northern

Be very afraid, the world is being taken over by Rob clones (only slightly better looking)
I’ve seen attack of the clones, I know how this works

Comment by Northern

Attack of the Clones

Just to clear, I didn’t mean to comment three times, it wouldn’t post my comments, so I kept trying.

Comment by Northern

It’s not a cry for help

Comment by Northern
