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?

queen L.A : All people crush on Jason momoa, the rock. I’m here big crushing on oobah.

Carson Garfield : Little did we know that the Oobah from Vice isn’t even the real Oobah

Jerdua : His brother is sooo good looking with his brown hair and beard

MoonWalkerTexsRanger : WILL THE REAL SLIM SHADY PLEASE STAND UP

Evolute Creator : "How I faked myself to the tip of youtube", the video on which oobah reveals that he was, in fact, howtobasic all along

J Armellin : What, why is he sending the hot one w a luke-warm audition ON A RADIO INTERVIEW?!?

tomatodim : Being a bulgarian, who somehow missed this whole thing on tv and just now found out about this guy, let me tell you it was such a joy to watch the bulgarian part in this video. Firstly, I very rarely stumble upon my country being mentioned somehow on the "english" internet, so it's always a very interesting to me surprise. But more importantly, I could understand everything they said in the montage and it was funny, because they say how he made a fake restaurant and then they translate and narrate what he says when he questions if he or anything else is real.... And I don't know, but somehow hearing the irony in them interviewing the "fake" person about his fake restaurant in none other than my native language, made it so much better and meme-ier. And also the way they narrated/translated him speaking sounds sort of a bit pretenciously serious, which fits the irony so well. It's interesting how hearing something in your narive tongue (and also in this case, with a more or less familiar voice) can somehow make it sound different and perhaps even closer to you in a way.

Chuck Spidell : Black Mirror episode right there.

Fatima Kane : Oobah Butler wasn’t even in this video.

MissGeorgiex1 : Oobah’s only brand is the hyperreal, simulacra society Baudrillard spoke of. I love it.

Mizuki Hattori : I won't be surprised if his real name isn't Oobah Butler

varun009 : It'd have been hilarious if he'd sent an ethnic (brown or black preferably) in full gear. Coupled with this modern hesitation to bring up race under any circumstances. It'd have been hilarious.

strxwberri•jxm - : Pffft... Singapore should chill out -a Singaporean

Abdul Hameed : Oobah carrying vice hard

kande fray : The fact they played a vid of the real oobah then his brother appeared I screamed😂😂

one of these banditøs : he is an absolute madman i aspire to be

owen bailey : Fun fact: Oobah is also Buckethead, Marshmello, and HowToBasic

J. Montrice : I am literally laughing out loud right now. Honestly, Oobah 1,2, & 3 are pretty hot. I want the other 2's instagrams lol

Yuval Krisi : Imagine if the real oobah in the videos is a fake one.

Ma ra : Haha, genius! Look forward to seeing what's next... :))

Brittany Figueira : The antithesis of egoic identity in mainstream media, what a beautiful pontificat

Polly Pocket : Can I order an oobah for the next few months?!?

Anthony Perez : May the real Gergio Pevioni please stand up!!!

Gurosama Bltch : "I took an Oobah here" I can't believe that's all he had to say

Dara M. : I just searched for and watched the Bulgarian interview (I’m Bulgarian) and I’m so embarrassed - how did they believe it’s him?!? Like, they literally show clips of the original video about The Shed and then interview the fake Oobah AND HE LOOKS NOTHING LIKE HIM AND THEY STILL BELIEVE IT!?

Rachel Koops : You could sell that Oobah logo on a shirt. For woke people.

Gino De los Angeles : Will the real slim shady, please stand up.
