It’s like Superman and Clark Kent, but with an earring instead of glasses.
BURBANK, CA — You heard it here first! Based on our exhaust
edive investigative reporting, Uncle Walt’s Insider can now reveal that famed Disney Imagineer Joe Rohde and celebrated director and member of Monty Python Terry Gilliam are in fact the same person.
This conclusion is based on solid evidence:
1. They look alike.
Seriously, look at those photos. Okay, two different people, right?
But NOW, cover up Joe’s left earlobe and his magnificent earring (@realjoesearring). BOOM. Same guy!
2. Both are American
That may not seem like a big deal — last we checked there were [really big number; someone research this] Americans. But consider this: of the six members of Monty Python (John Cleese, Terry Jones, Michael Palin, Graham Chapman, Eric Idle, and Terry Gilliam), Gilliam is the only American. This greatly decreases the odds that Joe Rohde is one of the other Monty Python members.
Hey, don’t give us grief about knowing all of their names but not the U.S. population. We memorize important things.
3. a. Rohde works for Disney
b. Disney is considering adding a Brazil pavilion to Epcot
c. Gilliam directed a movie called Brazil.
Coincidence? We think not!
4. We’ve never seen them together.
Seriously, have you ever seen them in the same room together? Let us know in the comments below!
Cover photo: Joe Rohde and Terry Gilliam. Or perhaps just two pictures of Joe Rohde. Or Terry Gilliam. We’re so confused.
