For the last few weeks, this image is being circulated of an older balding, perhaps Jewish, gentleman wearing a Sleep tee, presumably outside of a venue. I was tipped off to the photo a few weeks ago by a Metal Injection junkie…
When I looked at the photo on my phone, I couldn't believe my eyes. Was Larry David really at a doom show?
But, if you really look up close at the image, it's just a Larry look-a-like. There are a few other clues that would immediately tip off any true LD fan…

Larry David wears New Balances
