Sometimes, the selected matches are spot-on, like Statler and Waldorf.

Most people laugh when they see themselves on the Jumbotron with celebrity lookalikes. Some matches are a bit of a stretch, and it takes the audience a moment to make the connection.

But when it clicks, there is applause and laughter. The next guy totally missed an opportunity. He should have assumed the crossed-arms pose this mascot is famous for. He did nail the facial expression and almost had the perfect smile.

The cameramen’s choices of actual people to match were incredibly accurate. The Steve Urkel comparison made the fan laugh so hard that he spilled his popcorn… because it was Urkel himself! This one could actually be the celebrity sitting in the arena watching the hockey game.
