Laurel and Hardy Reincarnated.

I found this clip very fascinating and if this is true, I'm not surprised that Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy would reincarnate as brothers and continue their love for slapstick comedy as they were very close in life.

In this segment, Walter informs Josh & Danny of their past lives as Stan & Ollie. The Bacher Boys, initially perplexed, then relate that Laurel & Hardy have been the biggest influences in their lives, a fact that was previously unknown to Walter. Clips from their first Off Broadway show demonstrate that Josh & Danny have replicated the comedic development of Laurel & Hardy. When Josh & Dannny's parents are interviewed, they reveal that when the boys were young, they extensively pretended that they were Laurel & Hardy. In addition, we see that they spontaneously made slapstick movies as children. The brothers' world class collection of Laurel & Hardy memorabilia, including clothing Stan & Ollie wore, is viewed. The brothers started their collection years before Walter contacted them regarding their past lives as Stan & Ollie. Walter only learned about the Bacher Boys Laurel & Hardy collection and childhood behavior only after he contacted them in 2005.

I remember the ads. Who knows? Could be. Or maybe these guys were just inspired by Abbott and Costello. Jackie Gleason and Art Carney were inspired by Laurel and Hardy.

@argonne1918 - Everyone who claims to have had a past life must have been inspired by someone or something. Who were you inspired by?
