Brother From Another Mother| Mzansi Awed By The Striking Resemblance Between Trevor Noah And The Weeknd
The resemblance is uncanny.
South Africans on Twitter are amused by how comedian and The Daily Show host Trevor Noah has facial similarities with Canadian musician The Weeknd.
The singer and the comedian both have light skin and like to keep their Afros long and natural.
The resemblance came to a head last year when Trevor Noah dressed as The Weeknd for Halloween. When he went out looking like that, one woman screamed “The Weeknd” and ran up to him, assuming its the Blinding Lights hitmaker.
He told Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show:
“This is one of the strangest experiences I’ve ever had ’cause I know The Weeknd and I look similar from certain angles. I’m walking downtown in New York. It’s Halloween. Everyone is dressed up as other things. Someone screams, ‘The Weeknd!’ So I go, ‘Yeah, that’s the outfit. I get it.’ Then she’s like, ‘Can I get a selfie, The Weeknd?’ And I was like, ‘Wait, you think I am The Weeknd?'”
Trevor then told her that it was just a costume and he was not The Weeknd. The woman was not having it.
“She’s like, ‘You’re lying. I recognize you.’ I was like, ‘Wait, why would The Weeknd be The Weeknd for Halloween?’ And then she got angry. She’s like, ‘I thought you were nice.’ Then I’m like, ‘Well, guess The Weeknd’s not nice. I don’t know what’s happening right now.’ So now, I’m gonna go as him every year.”
Social media users agreed that Trevor Noah does look like The Weeknd:
“Someone’s father should confess😂.”
“Trevor Noah looks like a Thursday 🤣.”
“It’s like they’re long-lost brothers.”
“The Weekend and Weekdays.”
“Been saying this for ages😂😂🔥🔥🔥🔥 glad people see it too.”
