Look, it's British chef Heston Blumenthal and his tiny doppelganger, ten-year-old Haydon Gill. Gill was selected from "hundreds" of British schoolboys to play a child version of Blumenthal in a commercial for the grocery chain Waitrose, for whom Blumenthal has developed "nostalgic" hot cross buns for Easter. Check out the ad below for some serious 70s-style mugging from Gill (spoiler: 70s Heston has hair).
