We’ve featured a lot of people in these pages who have had plastic surgery to look like someone else, but I don’t think that any of them have been more pathetic than this dude who spent £33,000 on looking like David Beckham and well, you can see the results for yourself.
However, Jack Johnson has revealed that he’s even more determined to achieve his dream after he almost died after a chip pan fire almost burned down his flat. Jack was cooking potato waffles and scrolling social media at his flat in Nottingham when he dozed off and the pan caught fire. He then made the mistake of throwing it onto his bed, where it set a deodorant can alight, whacked him in the face and sent him into a coma. What a clutz.
When Jack awoke, he was in the local hospital and his flat had been burned down. Even though he’s know sofa surfing with friends and unemployed though, it hasn’t limited his passion for wanting to look like Beckham:
I will not stop until I’m dead. I do not look like David now so even if someone gave me £1m I still wouldn’t look like him but I will keep trying. It has made me more determined to reach my goal because I nearly died.
I have lost everything. I am in a lot of debt anyway, but now I am in more debt because I did not have insurance. It has destroyed me.
I am blacklisted everywhere [for credit]. I will carry on until I know I look like him. If I don’t listen to my own mum, when she tells me to stop, I am not going to listen to everyone else.
I have got no problem with my appearance but I just want to be a David Beckham lookalike, the first person in Britain to look exactly like a celebrity through work being done.
Apparently Jack has already spend £33,000 on changing his appearance – many of these from loans – and has had work done on his nose and chin as well as liposuction, botox, fillers and facials. Next he wants to have three ribs removed so he can fit into the same waistcoats as Beckham as well as working on his facial bone structure.
You’re probably wondering how he plans on affording it and you’ll be pleased to hear that he’s set up a GoFundMe page so he can continue to scrimp off other people in trying to achieve his impossible goal. What a legend.
