The slightly unconventional choice of winner - unconventional in that, y'know, he looks nothing like the Hollywood star - beat no fewer than 782 fellow entrants to win the Oscars visit in the contest held at Dylan's Whiskey bar in Kilkenny, Ireland. This is STILL not a joke.
Apparently it wasn't just Glendon's looks which led him to victory but the fact that he and George share a profession. According to contest organiser Gabriel Murray - a local filmmaker and historian - "We took into consideration in deciding the winner that David is a local actor."
The whole competition stems from Murray's research into Clooney's ancestors which revealed the actor has roots in the Kilkenny area.
That's as may be, and David Glendon looks to be a lovely chap (we can tell from how he's holding his certificate - it's modest but tender) BUT, and we cannot overstate this, he looks nothing like George.
