Man refused credit card because he looks like Pavarotti

6 August 2012

not pavarottiColin Miller got his application for a Barclays personalised photo card turned down because he looks too much like Pavarotti. Or Demis Roussos. Or just about any balding tubby man with a beard.

Anyway, staff thought he didn't own the copyright to his own face and told him to sling his large hook.

"I was shocked," said Colin. "I can't help who I look like. I don't try to look like him. I have had no cosmetic surgery and I don't try to do things to myself to look like him. I am being penalised for looking how I do."

He doesn't do things to himself to try and look like Pavarotti, apart from dressing up exactly like Pavarotti and getting paid to be a Pavarotti lookalike.

Anyone smell a publicity stunt by his agent at the lookalike firm? And he still looks more like Demis Roussos.

    What sort of cunt wants a photo of their own face on their credit card? Especially when they look like a prolapsed badger.

    I've never heard of a Barclays personalised photo card, and clearly nobody actually needs one - so yes, it does sound to me like a PR stunt from the lookalike firm. Thanks, Bitterwallet, for playing along and encouraging the cunts.

    Pavorotti ? Nah, he looks more like a fat Morgan Freeman

    Check out the website and the fat lady gaga tribute act Donna Marie, she needs to lay of the pies and then she'll look more like drag act gaga. I thought that chubby warbler Pavarotti was selling car insurance but I've just found he snuffed it.

    He looks nothing like Luciano Pavarotti, Pavarotti is an advanced state of decomposition, this person is quite obviously not.
