    Neil Pickup clones

    They're spreading. I spotted one in a bar tonight. Glasses, short ginger hair, receding hairline - this guy had it all. Thought it was the real Neil Pickup. Was about to go over and say hi but I saw him light up a cigarette. Thought "hang on. The real Neil Pickup doesn't smoke!" Would have otherwise been the perfect disguise.

    Ever seen a Neil Pickup clone in your neck of the woods?

    The real Neil Pickup would've been over warning the guy of a 50 fine for smoking in a bar. Neil Pickup doesnt make such silly errors.

    Saw a photographer in London and was so close to asking him if he was Neil.

    Not really around here anymore, but had to post on this. I see Pickup clones everywhere, must have seen maybe 10 of them in total. Including a few abroad. Scary... Maybe it's just the 'ginger with glasses' syndrome, every school has some of them. Normally having footballs kicked at them or the like.

    There is a guy who is facially identical, wears glasses and has the same styled hair - just blonde, not ginger.

    I saw a clone too, but he didn't have any glasses. I actually said "Neil have you lost your glasses"

    On a similar note, about a year ago i saw a guy at indoor cricket, who was the spitting image of Cameron. Except this guy had long hair. I asked him "Are we playing you, Cameron?"

    They both just looked at me as if to say "I'm going to hurt you"
