1. Shiznit We Slept On: Prince Look-A-Like Contest at Champions Sports Bar in D.C. (1985).

    Prince_Lookalike

    Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today 2 get through this thing called Ron Smith’s 1985 Celebrity Look-A-Like Contest: Prince Edition. But don’t think this is a walk in the Paisley Park. The comp at Champions Sports Bar in Washington D.C. is tough enough to make a dove cry, and Ron looks like a no-nonsense type of guy. At stake for these Purple One clones in Georgetown is a contract worth up to $25 G’s a year doing appearances — on a part time basis! But first these contenders must impress the panels of judges, which include Tina Turner and Hulk Hogan doppelgängers. Let’s go crazy!

      I assume that Prince subsequently had his lawyers and NPG LLC enforce a cease and desist order against all those look-a-like performers. Warn a brother, don’t be a slave!
