Jesse Jackson lookalike owns a flea market - VIDEO

sammy stephens and jesse jacksonI was pokin' around NBC's YouTube channel the other day when I came across this video of Leno interviewing celebrity lookalikes on the street.

The bit isn't all that funny, but check out the first guy Jay interviews. That's right, it's Sammy Stephens, owner of Flea Market Montgomery in Montgomery, Alabama. Stephens' commercial, which features him both rapping and dancing has made him a minor celebrity both online and on TV (Ellen DeGeneres loved his commercial and invited him on to her show).

During the bit, Stephens says people sometimes tell him he looks like Jesse Jackson, but I don't see it. I do have to give the man credit for knowing how to promote his business, though. He not only mentions his flea market, he's even wearing a t-shirt with his "It's Just Like, It's Just Like, a Mini Mall" slogan on it.

Oh yeah, and I'm mentioning it here. I guess I'm part of the Sammy Stephens promotional juggernaut.

Aww, the audience was sorta mean to that one lady who thought she looked like Rosie O'Donnell.

Good segment.

I dont think Jay knew who he was at all. Also the bit was kinda funny because the guy kepy saying Mike Sicka no matter how many times he was corrected. Blonde Tom Cruise should have been thumbs up too.
