Do you know?

A thread inspired by MrS previously not recognising Gary Barlow, then claiming to not know who Rhianna is and then, last night, not knowing who Rylan is. Inexplicable.

Go make your own!

I know what Gary Barlow looks like but he has quite a bland face that I probably wouldn’t recognise on the street / wouldn’t put two and two together.

Rylan is unmistakable

Googling Rylan I think I vaguely recognise him, but definitely not one I’d heard of

(although looking at his career, there’s basically no reason why I should’ve been aware of him)

I know and recognise John Cena, the tricky part is spotting him though.

i’ve somehow never seen him in passing, feel like the only person in town who doesnt have multiple Dylan sightings

A friend met Rylan at Eurovision and he was by all accounts a Thoroughly Nice Chap.

These are mostly very famous people, I would be worried I had detached from society too thoroughly if I did not know of them at a surface level.

Honestly don’t get how people recognise celebrities. Reckon there’s no more than a dozen I would actually be able to tell (at least if they didn’t have an entourage or something).

spotted him walking around Belfast once (a few hours before one of his gigs tbf)

did not spot him when he was filming a sitcom a couple of streets away from me though
