Ummm, OK, If You Say So......

A couple of months ago, I posted this pic of this dude who was supposed to be a Denzel Washington lookalike. He looked about as much like Denzel as my Yorkie. While cruising the internets, I found that he is part of a management company that has a whole string of lookalikes, most of them looking like the stars they are supposed to be as much as he looks like Denzel. They are all described like him, just insert the celebrity name:

This Denzel Washington [or other celebrity] impersonator is excellent for corporate & private events, company picnics, trade shows, clubs, fundraisers, & advertising. This accomplished impersonator not only looks like the performer, he has captured Denzel Washington's mannerisms as well. In addition, you can arrange to provide your audience with photos taken with "Denzel Washington" as souvenirs.

Alrighty then. See if you can guess who these "celebrities" are. Answers at the bottom:


one



two


three (easy)



four (hint: hasn't been in movies)



five



six



seven



eight



nine




1)beyonce 2)janet jackson 3)prince 4)barack obama (?!) 5)halle berry 6)halle berry 7)halle berry 8)oprah winfrey 9)jennifer lopez

Fantastically Misunderstood Me said...

i found your blog last week and love it. but this is the first post that's really just prompted me to leave a comment. i laughed so hard i nearly cried when i looked at these pictures. i guessed janet (because of the chiseled face) and barack (because of the ears). but these people have GOT to be kidding me. is this a service for "others" who think all black people look alike? they're the only ones who could be so duped. the oprah one looks more like angie stone to me. and 3 halle berrys who look so dramatically different?! wow... there are no words...

Urban Thought said...

One: A younger version of Jenifer Lewis.

Five: Pierce Brosnan and Sean Connery

I thought the last one looked more like Roselyn Sanchez or Angela Basset's friend in the latest Tyler Perry movie more than she does JLO.

What in the SAM HELL!!!???

Whoever told them chicks they look like Halle Berry (especially that one in the #5 pic) done lied to her...not saying she ain't cute, but Halle Berry? REJECT!!!

Vivrant Thang said...

I actually guessed most of them except the first two Halle Narys. I looked at it from an impersonator perspective. But um, I vote no on all of them.

madame z said...

Beyonce in the first pic? She looks more like Mary J. Blige that tat on her arm. LOL.

Regina said...

I guessed them all right except #1 & #5 she was clearly too dark to be Halle Berry, and I had no clue who #1 was supposed to be! And Peirce Brosnon & Sean Connery were left out.
I hope this isn't their only day time job!!

Danielle said...

Bad, just totally awful.

theblackactor.com said...

Why they got Prince's hair 8 feet high??!!! Can we say... Puffy? Bouffaint?

LMAO.

Ehav Ever said...

That JLo doesn't look like JLo. What's up with the one leg on the pole thing? The Halle girls don't look like Halle, although I did have an idea of who they were trying to look like. That Janet looks plastered in the face, like the real Janet. That Obama, well enough said there. Denzel, to quote the Simpson's Ha Ha! Sean Connery and Peirce Brosnen, I think not Mr. Bond. Oprah, maybe from a Living Color sketch. Why does she look like she is going to sing a disco song? Prince, if he thinks he is close with that one maybe he has been listening to lets go crazy to much. Beyonce, okay if they say so.

Can you imagine what they must have been like as kids on career day? When I grow I want to impersonate Halle Berry. Girl, you don't look like Halle Berry! I'll show you. I am going to make my dream of impersonating Halle Berry come true.

Maybe their company slogan is, When you can't afford the best, then settle for something less.

justjudith said...

what?? crazy. the prince is just TOO funny.

clnmike said...

That Prince one was horrible.

The Obenson Report said...

I've been told I look like Tiger Woods... maybe I should sign up!

Thembi said...

THIS. POST. IS. FANTASTIC.

Do these impersonators moonlight for Pocksongs Karaoke by any chance?

Thembi said...

Ok also:

Since when does beyonce have a tatto on her arm? Its called Dermablend, at least cover it up to try and fool us.

That Janet is SO unfortunate.

Why did i think eight was Oprah???

Invisible Woman said...

@f misunderstood me: Glad you found me! I thought the same thing---do "others" really think we look so much alike? If they brought one of those "souvenir" pictures home, their kids would be like "Daddy, that IS NOT Beyonce!"

@UT: Jenifer Lewis? That is random, lol. Those dudes look like Pierce and Brosnan, but I was focusing on Black film celebs...that was the only picture they had of that Halle.

@Ms. M: NONE of those chicks look like Halle, albeit they are attractive. One of them looks like Salt to me...

@vivrant: you were on the right track to look at it that way...but truth be told, I wouldn't have guessed Obama, even with the ears.

@madame z: that's what I thought too! Waaay more Mary than Bey

Invisible Woman said...

@regina" I left Pierce and Sean out cause they're not "Black Cinema". I hope they ALL have serious professions!

@danielle: agreed!

@tba: I laughed out loud too---dude is trying to do too much--Prince would never, ever let his fabulous do look like that. I think he's white, too!

@ehav: Where have YOU been young man? lol!! :-) You had me dying laughing---you are quite the Israeli comedian...that slogan was on point!

@jj: that Prince is too many things...Prince may be over the top, but he's never had 3 foot high hair...

Invisible Woman said...

@clnmike: whatsup my brotha! where ya been? miss your comments...

@obenson--if these pictures are any indication, I think you might have a second job with that management company, haha

@thembi: I actually thought of you when I wrote this post...I said "this is something Thembi would do" lol :-)

How you guessed Oprah is beyond me---must be the hair, cause it sure couldn't be anything else! And yes, she does look like she should be on the cover of those karaoke songs...

Ehav Ever said...

Hey IW,

I have been checking your blog here and there. I haven't been out to a movie since I have been here so I keep up with things from your blog.

Your blog always makes me laugh. Just the lingo alone warrants an IW show. I think Thembi would have to be included in that also. These last group of posts have really had me laughing so I had to post something.

It is especially funny since there are a some Israelis who try to imitate American media and pop images, and it often comes off in a very weird way. As an example, the worst thing I saw recently were Ethiopian girls walking around with the type of blond hair that evades the whitest of the white girls. So your site brings me double the laugh. I'll be back for more.

Invisible Woman said...

@ehav: I ain't never seen a light skinned Ethiopian...that girl knows she was wrong!

Ehav Ever said...

Hey IW,

The light skinned Ethiopians do exists. You find them often in some of the ethnic groups that had more contact with the Middle East or the Italians. I haven't seen many really light Ethiopian Israelis, who weren't a recent mix with another Jewish ethnic group, but they may exist.

The girl I was describing though was really dark and the blond hair she had can only be described as long hookerish blond hair. It wasn't just that it was blond, but it looked trashy. My thing is if a person is going to go that right, at least look stylish. I wanted to go up to her and beg her to get rid of that hair style. I was willing to pay MONEY for her to change it, and I don't even know her.

Invisible Woman said...

@ehav--you know it's bad when you wanna pay somebody to change their hair! Doesn't get much worse than that...

I took a sick day. Pink eye. So I was sitting here looking for pics of India.Arie and came across this site. Reading and having a great time and just like "Fantastically" I was pulled into this particular blog. Let me tell you, I laughed so hard I think the pink spread to the other eye. Even typing this I'm still sniggling and giggling at these people and how sad their life must have been before someone got drunk and said "Hey you look like..." And then I realized I was reading something a year old and was laughing even harder at the idea that for the past year they've been hiding their faces in shame because of this blog. Thanks for making my day brighter!
