We all have a celebrity doppelgänger. I used to tell people mine was either Topher Grace (a stretch) or Jake Gyllenhaal (absolutely the heck not). Even famous people have celebrity doppelgängers. Katy Perry's, for example, is Zooey Deschanel. Or is it vice versa?

Anyway, Matthew McConaughey's celebrity doppelgänger is a margarita. Or rather, several margaritas.

Let's back up. There's a meme going around Twitter where people thread together celebs dressed like various iterations of various objects. For example, you have Tessa Thompson as Pringles:

And of course, you have to have Andre 3000 as Pringles:

And in a particularly great example of regional synergy, you have Boston boy Ben Affleck as various drinks from Dunkin Donuts:

So, you get the idea. That leads us to our favorite permutation of the meme: McConaughey as margaritas.

Which one are you? I am, without a doubt, Big Red margarita McConaughey. In fact, I look more like that than I have ever looked like Jake Gyllenhaal.
