This celebrity lookalike episode of The Weakest Link is being shared again because it’s so cursed
The television landscape was drastically different in the early 00s: the so-called “golden age” of television was in full swing, streaming services had yet to invade our lives, and the standards of celebrity lookalikes were apparently a lot, lot lower.
On Twitter, this opening clip from a celebrity lookalikes special of The Weakest Link resurfaced via @JoStephenson96:

Apologies for the nightmares.
In a conclusion worthy of a prime time drama, the finale sees the fake Victoria Beckham go head-to-head with the fake David Beckham. Eat your heart out, Game of Thrones.
Posh v Becks in the final, you couldn’t make it up! pic.twitter.com/uqKLr93TYl

I think we forget what a cursed time the early 00s were. Sure there was no brexit, pandemics, Trump and not even the recession had hit yet but :gestures at all light-entertainment nostalgia:

The most disconcerting thing here is that some do an impression and some don’t.
