We live in an era where people tailor themselves online, putting out an idealised version of themselves to the world. So why can't we do it in real life?
In the wake of turning his shed into London's number one restaurant and getting a knock-off clothing brand into Paris Fashion Week, VICE's Oobah Butler decides to audition lookalikes and send fake versions of himself to TV and radio interviews internationally in a bid to improve his brand. But can he get away with it?

So, to sum up:
He can fake his own identity, coordinate various groups of people, execute incredible scams without inflicting the law and get massive media attention.
If this guy wanted to, he could be a REAL LIFE JOKER!!!!
World Press: "Hello, Oobah. We would like to interview you about the Shed at Dulwich and how easy is it to deceive you online. Would you be interested in attending? "
Oobah: "Well yes, but actually no."
i don’t think any of them realized that they were playing with a criminal mastermind. like he faked the Paris fashion thing and everyone laughs like “lmao high fashion is nonsense” and they praise him and move on. but then he fakes the Shed and they think “wow this guy is hilarious what is he thinking” but just imagine the looks on their faces when they realized what he’d done, and why he had done it, and then when they tried to profit off of the story, *he said fuck you to all of them and faked the goddamn interviews.*
This is why journalism school is bullshit. They all ask the same questions. And most annoyingly to me is when (especially on the red carpet) reporters don’t ask questions they make a statement and put the mic in the celebs face. For example: reporter: it’s a great day today! Mic put in celebs face. You didn’t ask a question, what the fuck do you want me to say to your STATEMENT about the weather??!!
This is why eye witnesses are the least reliable in a court of law YET jurors will override evidence and common sense (like multiple alibis) because of a witness who saw something at night across the street.
Will the real Slim Shady please stand up. ✌ Celebs do this all the time. Take KODAK Black.. He regularly has some of his crew go on stage in balaclavas same build & Physical appearance. As a kind of risk assessment! . 💥🎡

As a child, there was a portrait in our family home in Paris that I always loved. Today, it’s known as Maya with Doll – but to me it was just a portrait of my mother, albeit a remarkable one. “Your grandfather was a painter,” she would say, whenever the subject of the canvas, one of many that hung around the house, came up in discussion. It was only when I began school, and whispers about my heritage started to follow me, that I realised what an understatement that was. My grandfather was far more than a painter. He was the defining figure of 20th-century art – and, as I would learn later from years of academic study, a true genius. It was a revelation that would shape the course of my life in many ways. When Picasso died – in 1973, the year before I was born – he left behind 45,000 works, not to mention personal objects and correspondence.
