Separated at birth?

Posted by Philip James, May 18, 2008.

Snooth was out in force at Friday night's Mashable party at Webster Hall, NYC. None other than Grandmaster Flash was spinning (far too heavy on the decks, at one point he managed to fling a handful of records off the table with his exuberance). A strange evening which culminated with me being interviewed for some fashion TV channel, 2 questions into it, me still in what I wore to the office that day, it was fairly clear to the interviewer that I was a lost cause.

One of our engineers, Chris Carpita, was then mistaken for Gary Vee's brother. The guy was convinced Chris was AJ, and couldn't get past the fact that there was no connection, other than the wine industry. I don't see it myself, but check for yourself:

Chris Carpita of Snooth - separated at birth from - AJ Vaynerchuk

Not sure why Chris, a computer science major, was ever photographed in a labcoat, but thats all Google images gave me.

One that I do see myself, though, is Paul Mabray, Founder of Inertia Beverage Group, who looks (and sounds) suspiciously like Paul Walker, star of 30 trashy teen movies, such as "The Fast and the Furious" and the cheerleader film, "She's all That". See for yourself:

Paul Mabray, IBG - separated at birth from - Paul Walker, teen heart throb

Are there any others in the industry? Tom Walk, Randy Hall, me?

Paul and Paul have nothing in common, except _maybe_ eyes?!

I read this in bed this weekend after having all four of my wisdom teeth out and nearly spit my milkshake up from laughing so hard. Normally I get Justin Long - or Joseph Levitt - but your compliment was way too kind. I have a bunch of our team scrambling to see if we can find some separated at birth in the wine or wine 2.0 realm. What a fun time we are having searching. We'll post when we find some.

Excellent Paul - I'm pretty sure we can dig up a few ourselves. Best of luck with the recovery, I've delayed having my wisdom teeth out for a good 10 years, so its about time I stopped procrastinating myself

Gary Vee and a young Joe Pesci:

I can see that too. And I don't look like AJ, this was based on the ramblings of one person in a dark room. I am not Gary's spy. Move along, citizen.

LOL...I thought Gary Vee was a young Joe Pesci too.

I kinda think Philip looks like Liev Schreiber:

Philip and a young Randy Quaid?

Reply by Philip James, May 25, 2008.

Ouch! I prefer Liev Schreiber

I hate to stereotype, but I think most British people don't like being compared to RV-driving, squirrel-munching, Nascar-loving country bumpkins ;)

I don't know about British people, but Randy Quaid is hot; I'd take it as a compliment!
