Sometimes the Duplicate Surpasses the Original

Once the "controversy" has died down and the radio play has somewhat fizzled, love him or hate him, Eminem is pretty. At least I think so. That's why when I ran across these images during my ongoing pilgrimage for all things jpg, I had to add them to my collection. Initially I thought "Yowsa! The Real Slim Shady's been doin' some serious workin' out!" Then, upon closer inspection, I realized it wasn't him but some guy named Ryan Shepard instead. As it turns out, he's Eminem's body and stunt double in a lot of his videos. The resemblance is uncanny though, isn't it? Well, not that uncanny, considering how many clones came about during the years between '99 and '00. I can't help but love his latest radio-friendly song Like Toy Soldiers with it's 80's-licious sampling of one-hit-wonder Martika's Toy Soldiers.
