TV Network Gets Man With Art Doppelganger to Dress the Part

by Hrag Vartanian on November 16, 2012

ABC News has convinced Max Galuppo of Bloomsbury, NJ, who was propelled into the public spotlight when Reddit users couldn’t believe how much he looked like  “Portrait of a Nobleman with Duelling Gauntlet” (1562) by an anonymous artist at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, to dress up like the 16th C. Italian noble and appear on national TV.

We were hoping the segment would be better — not sure why he’s wearing a cape or why we can’t see the cod piece? — but it’s funny nonetheless.
