You are subject to inspection
Those are not your lips
Have you been kissed by a computer?
Are you able to move your hips?

It's the skins, have you seen them?
Holding us in
The skins, can you seen them?
We cling to our skin

Is it true, are you changing?
If so I won't come in
Are you going to be so different?
What's so wrong with our skin?

Randy Burgess where are you now
The age of innocence is dead
Legions of legends have shown us how

When you're raging it's so hard to keep your head
When you're raging it's so hard to keep your head
I'm not complaining it's so hard to keep my head
When you're raging it's so hard to keep your head

OMG this is so much fun! I love the parallels and intersections (Amy looking at Evil!Willow licking her way down, hee) and I am so glad you used both TOS and Reboot, that's such a neat combo, with the two Spocks and two Kirks.

I've long wanted to make a doppelgänger vid and never got around to it, so this is just like you made it for me. :-)

Fantastic vid! I loved how easily you moved from creepy uncanniness to pure wacky fun. I was also impressed by just how many shows have doppelgangers!

I have this huge grin on my face right now from all the parts I recognize but also how much spooky fun the WHOLE THING is. Love this trope, perfect vid for it.

Neato! This makes me want to rewatch all the shows again. (Or start watching them, in some cases.) Thanks for sharing!

Finally watched this after finishing BSG (waited in case of spoilers) - LOVED IT! So much fun remembering all these doubles (and learning about a few unfamiliar ones) and seeing them fight and flirt and work together and ultimately accept what their doppelgangers represent about hidden parts of themselves.

I am thinking of having a vid party this summer and if I do you can bet this will be on the playlist!

I loved how you got the selfcest (via Vamp Willow, of course, *g*) and the quirkiness of doubles. Very cool. Also EXCELLENT song choice. :D!

I love this trope, so as soon as I saw this at vidukon I knew I'd have to come track this vid down so I could keep it forever.
