After rumors of his death spread all over Twitter, Simon Cowell really can’t catch a break. A now-viral video shows a man who looks eerily similar to Simon getting some special treatment after he bathes. This bizarre video has raised a lot of questions about the story behind it, but don’t worry, we have all of the details, one towel at a time.
Simon Cowell And David Walliam’s Impersonators Bathed Together In Video
Taking one look at the NSFW video, you may be a little confused. That’s ok, we are too. But, Simon is not actually the man in the video. It was part of a sketch from a comedy news show on BBC called Celebrity B*tchslap News. The video was filmed back in 2012 and was just meant to parody celebrities and make people laugh. The David Walliams look-alike in the video is also very clearly not David Walliams, but it plays on the bromance that the two have after years of being on the Britain’s Got Talent judging panel. In the video, you can literally see that the fake celebrities have an entire team of people to help them bathe whether that’s toweling down their genitals or blow-drying them. The fake David even gets his champagne glass refilled.
In one part of the video, the Simon impersonator is shoved into what looks to be a girdle or a corset by his group of servants. They pay a ton of attention to making the impersonator look like he has a bulge which is hilariously embarrassing. As you know, the real Simon has been on quite the health journey in recent months and is in superb shape, contrary to this look-alike.
Some People Actually Thought Simon Was Really In The Video
Of course on the internet, everyone is free to form their own opinions. But even though the show confirms that this impersonator was not the real Simon, some people refused to believe that. “No, you didn’t Simon! How many people does it take to fluff you? And do they need to wear special outfits? Whose in the tub getting their toesy’s done? Can I join you? Why not? Omg! Hahahaha” said one Twitter user. “IS THAT F*CKING SIMON COWELL?” another Twitter user asked. Another twitter user said, “I’ll never forgive Twitter for showing me a video of Simon Cowell getting his a**crack blowdried.” Others just wished they could erase the memory of seeing the video forever.
Other people made sure to point out that it was not actually Simon or David in the video but it definitely went in one ear and out the other for some. The hashtag #ohnoSimon also began to trend because of this video resurfacing.
Something tells us that Simon would actually get a kick out of all of this social media attention. He is one of the biggest names in the entertainment industry so this kind of attention just draws more focus onto him and his accomplishments.
