33 Kick-Ass Copy Cats

From Political Porno Spoofs to Celebrity Surgical Lookalikes

— June 10, 2011 — Unique
If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then copy cats are the nicest people in the world. Obviously, there are good forms of copying and bad forms of copying, but often times, the greatness of the original is magnified even more so as imitators try to emulate them.

It comes as no surprise that many political figure lookalikes have surfaced in the past decade, but were you expecting full-on adult videos featuring vice presidential candidates? Then there are those who want to bring out a more humanistic side to their animals and dress them up as Sid Vicious. If you’re a fan of famous musician copy cats though, don’t fret. Elvis and Beatles impersonators will be around until the end of human civilization.
