Barbra Streisand Clones Her Dog! Plus Japanese Doll Clones! The “Dancing Stormtrooper” Cloned Too!

Barbra Streisand Cloned Her Dog For Double The Fun!

Yes, this is a true story, and here is what happened!

As People Magazine reports:

“The Academy Award-winning songstress recently revealed to Variety that two of her three dogs — all fluffy, white Coton du Tulears — are clones of her late dog, Samantha.

Samantha died in 2017 at 14 years old, but before the dog crossed the rainbow bridge, Streisand, 75, had cells taken from the pooch’s mouth and stomach.”

People adds:

“She used these samples to get two clones of Samantha — a pricey procedure. When the copy dogs arrived, Streisand, understandably, had trouble telling the puppies apart. Her solution was to put one pup in a red sweater and the other in a purple sweater, leading to their names Miss Scarlett and Miss Violet.”

The Future Is Now – And It’s Cloned!

Streisand may sound wacky for doing this, but she’s not alone…Japan has been cloning dogs for years!

Sit Fido, Sit!

In Japan, people have been cloning their image onto dolls, and do the same thing for their animals too! And when you do it, someone takes a picture of it, and that picture looks LIKE THIS!

I have covered many unique aspects of japanese life, but this is the craziest ever! People are not only cloning animals, but they are going through a process by which their own cloned image is being put on – well – everything!

According to one story, the cloning service is popular among Japanese women looking to preserve a special moment in their life – such as their wedding day, by cloning the hair & makeup – and even the dress they wore!

This is quite a disturbing, fascinating new trend – I find the pictures to be unsettling yet impossible to look away from!

Danny Choo Is Doing It Too!

We shot with Danny Choo once in Tokyo – he’s known as the “Dancing Stormtrooper” – and can be seen in the Shibuya district of Tokyo, dancing in his Stormtrooper outfit – here he is dancing with Olivia Munn and Kevin Pereira when we filmed a story there:

Danny has posted an in-depth story about the entire process of how he cloned himself as this doll – it’s fascinating – click on the link to see it!

  1. Goodness. I do not like the idea of cloning pets at all.

  2. That’s fascinating, in a weird kind of way. Barbra looks good for 75 though!
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. Those dolls are incredibly creepy. Thank you for sharing!
