15 things/people that look like Daniel Sedin

The Smylosphere is all agog right now over Henri Hurskainen, the Swedish badminton player who bears a striking, perhaps even creepy, resemblance to the Sedin twins, particularly Daniel Sedin. Their shared country of origin and athletic inclinations make the resemblance even more startling. Hurskainen was even born in the same month as the Sedins, though it was admittedly 6 years later.

It got us thinking about what other things and people look like Daniel Sedin. And when we get to thinking, we get to sharing/inflicting those thoughts on you, our loyal readers. Here are 15 things/people that look like Daniel Sedin:

1 | Henri Hurskainen

 

We had to start with the guy creating all the fuss. Unfortunately, Hurskainen has lost both his group stage matches, which means his Olympics is over.

2 | This creepy thing on Etsy

  

3 | Phillip from this Terrance and Phillip homage to the Sedins

 

4 | Cory Schneider

5 | This custom designed Matt Murdoch Mighty Mugg

 

See, Matt Murdoch is the Marvel comics superhero Daredevil from the alternate reality of 1602, which was a comic by Neil Gaiman, where Captain America travelled back in time, sparking the Marvel age of superheroes nearly 350 years before it was meant to begin and you know what, this is super-complicated, forget it.

6 | Stefan Raab, German TV host

 

7 | This Canucks fan

8 | Max Modell, Peter Parker’s current boss

 

9 | Alexi Lalas

 

10 | A red panda

 

11 |Ben Foster, sometimes

12 | A Golden Lion Tamarin Monkey

 

13 | An onion

 

14 | This guy

15 | Henrik Sedin

 

BONUS: 1 thing that doesn’t look like Daniel Sedin

    Stick a cricket bat in Bleacher Creature Sedin and it’s a dead ringer for Simon Pegg in Shaun of the Dead, though I’m pretty sure Pegg never supported that goofy of grin in SOTD.

    Proud to be #14. This has Aidan Brand written all over it, but since I can’t get in touch with him to find out, I’m still holding out hope that it’s Smylosphere coincidence.

      Totally and completely a coincidence. An awesome coincidence. Google Images is a strange beast.

    And people were complaining that Smug Nation wasn’t making an appearance this summer… #14 with a bullet, is co-founder Tyler Rowe. Where’d you find that?

      Left Daniel. I think. I can tell them apart in side by side photos but not in real life. I was on an elevator with a Sedin at the Scotiabank cinema a couple of years ago. I thought it was Henrik, I wanted to say hi and congratulations on the Art Ross but wasn’t 100% sure. If it was a year later I could have mentioned the Art Ross for either!

      Oops, embedding that photo definitely did not work, which is a shame, because it really demands some creative captioning from the creative masses here. Anyway, here’s the link: http://www.flickr.com/photos/hannahwoodard/7531000300
