Ok, since I'm not crazy, or at least no more than usual...

I saw the Coke ad below the cut, while driving, and it has, ever since, preyed on my mind that it looked like Michael Trucco. So I went and took a photo of it. One of the things which makes it especially hard, IMO, is that this image has been obviously airbrushed and altered.

Now, his official site (which is normally pretty up to date), does not mention his being part of a Coke ad campaign. However, as we know, sometimes photos are reused without the actor/model necessarily knowing about it. So I turn to you, flist, is this him?

I also posted some Trucco pics for COMPARISON PURPOSES. Please, try to contain your drool, I'm asking a SERIOUS QUESTION HERE!!! *g*

(all images can be clicked on to embiggen!)

Here's the ad I stumbled across, and instantly thought it looked like him.

And then I thought - no, you're a crazy fangirl. You only think that because you've seen the photos below and they are VERY REMINISCENT... (black t-shirt, sunglasses, poofed up hair, check)

(also, this one below is possibly my favorite M.T. image of all time!)

And because the pose is somewhat similar...

So now it's up to you - is it Trucco? y/n?
Am I a crazy fangirl? y/y?

Yea! Pic spam - for serious, scientific, comparison purposes only of course *wipes drool*

Okay. Honestly, the jaw line as seen in that first pic with the norton T is very, very similar. I'm still going to lean towards no, but I have to say that I'm not very confident in that. Because, holy shit, it's Trucco's cylon twin or long-lost brother if it's not him.

And yes, you are a crazy fangirl, but aren't we all?

isn't it freaky how it's SO CLOSE? I was sure it wasn't, that my eyes were just tricking me, but the longer i look at it, the less sure I'm getting. When you're comparing EARS, you just may have gone off the deep end...

I, er, may have joined his forum (something I swore I would never do, because it seems so stalkery), just to freaking ASK. Hopefully someone over there will know.

I... There is something up with the arm, though. But I don't know. Maybe it's Joe Flanigan?

Also, being on his forum is not stalkery! ;]

Yeah, the forearm is funky, but it looks like it was airbrushed to me. So... I dunno. It's hard to tell with the pic so altered into generic-ness.

OH nooooooo, not stalkery at all. :)

It's like... maybe someone frankensteined it? Took a couple different shots and made a composite? Because the shoulder/arm seems off slightly, like maybe it wasn't really that high to begin with.

Apparently there really ARE many copies...

I'm leaning very slightly towards no. But I'm no at all confident in that. It look a whole lot like him.

every five minutes I change my mind! That's why I threw it open to y'all to make sure I wasn't just imagining the resemblance!

I'm goint to have to research this one for a bit... I'll get back to you.

lizardbeth: trucco-backlizardbeth_j on October 29th, 2008 01:34 am (UTC)
I had to research QUITE EXTENSIVELY too... and since I'm still not sure, clearly I need to do more. It's for SCIENCE!
cujoy on October 29th, 2008 05:10 am (UTC)
Anything in the name of science. ;)

I think it's him. But I'll have to review the data more extensively. ;]

funny how your agreement means more to me than everyone else saying no. ;)

Just me wanting my first instinct to be right, I guess. BECAUSE I AM TWELVE! heh.

Those are some yummy photos and that Coke ad does look an awful lot like him. I guess there really are many copies *snerk*

Either way I'm glad for any reason that gives us and MT picspam :)

I vote no. Once you get up close it just doesn't look like him. But I approve of the picspam. Wholeheartedly!
