Did you know April 20th was Look-Alike Day? I love me a made-up holiday, and this one is always a doozy. It's an excuse for people to post photos side by side with their celebrity doppelgänger with a caption like,

"People always tell me I look like Michelle Pfeiffer but I don't see it! Do you?"

Is it self indulgent? Sure! But is it hurting anyone? Not at all. So why the heck not!

Where did Look-Alike Day come from?

According to NationalToday.com, this day was created by a feature television reporter named Jack Etzel in the 1980’s. He was in downtown Pittsburgh with photographer Rick Minutello, desperately looking for a light feature for the news. Rick said, “This guy coming toward us looks like Humphrey Bogart.” He had the cigarette, the hat, the whole nine yards! Jack said, “Let’s talk to him. I’ll ask him who people think he looks like.” And the rest is history!

We have a doppelgänger here on WOKQ. My new co-host in the morning, Logan, looks just like the country superstar Thomas Rhett! Well, up until a few days ago when he decided to cut his hair before consulting with the team. THE NERVE!

And then there's me, Kira. I've been told once or twice that I resemble Jennifer Nettles from Sugarland, which is a massive compliment. But if were being honest with each other, I more often get that I look like Jennifer Coolidge, the hilarious actress who plays Stiffler's mom in the American Pie movies. I'll take it!
