Look, I understand the desire to identify bald men with perfectly shaped heads, round glasses, and a mustache as Tobias Fünke. I really do. So when our friends at Hypervocal unearthed a Swiss doppelganger running for political office I was more than willing to play along and make a just-obscure-enough Tobias reference (Barbara Streisand in the Prince Of Tides ass-masking therapist pantsuit?) while passing along.
But let’s be honest here: The dude to the middle right is in a bald Swiss guy costume, not a Tobias Fünke costume. Lose the mustache and by these standards he’s a young Larry David lookalike. I understand we all can’t wait for Arrested Development to return to our lives but let’s cool our jets here with these bold Tobias Fünke doppelganger proclamations because some of us are expecting to click through and find bizarro David Cross sporting a handy pocketknife, ready to lead the people of Switzerland into an ambiguously neutral future.
