Aziz Ansari Sends In His Lookalike to Talk to Anderson Cooper


Aziz Ansari is a busy guy. He doesn’t have time to do everything he’d like to do, so he’s devised a new system to help him be in two places at once: a lookalike. He just sent his surrogate over to talk to silvery newshunk Anderson Cooper before coming out himself to relieve Aziz 2 of duty. Cooper seemed genuinely confused, which made me wish that people sent out the wrong person to interviews more often. Might as well spice up those boilerplate press tour interviews, right?

In any case, the lookalike video is above, and a few more clips from (the real) Aziz’s interview with Cooper are below.
