If Aaron Rodgers now gets spotted by a fan, there are three possibilities, he is recognised as the Green Bay Packers quarterback, the discount-double check guy from State Farm or . . . Tom Wrigglesworth?

Separated at birth?

Aaron Rodgers now has a doppelganger and it's an English Comedian with a heavy accent who can't throw an american football more than 10 yards, Tom Wrigglesworth.

Wrigglesworth sports a heavy moustache alongside a soul patch in order to look uncanny next to the Green Bay Packers signal caller Aaron Rodgers, so much so that even teammates of the quarterback did not recognise it wasn't actually him.

The comedian was at training camp on Wednesday and was filming his little trickery as he masqueraded as the franchise quarterback at the Green Bay complex.

The real A-Rod?

With similar facial hair to Rodgers, dressed in a Packers hoodie and hat, Wrigglesworth was bombarded by adoring Green Bay fans who wanted a picture with their star quarterback.

The doppelganger continued to introduce himself as 'Tom' to fans after autographs and signed his 'John Hancock' left handed, I'm sure we don't need to tell you which arm Rodgers slings lasers in the NFL with.

Wrigglesworth still in his role as Rodgers, proceeds to receive the key to the city from the Mayor before making his way to the Packers locker room to meet some of his already established 'teammates'.

He would finally go on to meet Rodgers himself, the two share a moment of recognition that they are probably related down the line somewhere due to their uncanny similarities and then the Packers QB introduces the comedian as his cousin to the rest of the locker room.

Its an interesting and funny video to watch, a few of the Packer players have to do double takes when they first glimpse Wrigglesworth posing as Rodgers, you can check it all out below.
