Beck - Loser

Technically a repost but this has been bugging me for weeks. Is that Robert Downey Jr. in mime makeup at 2:18 stepping into frame to photobomb Beck's loser video or not? I can only find one Reddit post of someone asking same, with people saying "No doesn't look like him at all" but if you understand that this was filmed in 1993/1994 and know where RDJ was in his development at that time it does indeed look like him. But nothing else appears in terms of official stories or anything that I can find. Does anyone Know?

That most definitely is him, good catch. Face and mannerisms. Don't forget he's definitely got a sense of musical timing and physicality, seen as far back as Chaplain. A quick search shows others musing about this cameo on Reddit.

It's him. Look at photos of him working on the street during that time he is dressed like that with that exact same makeup and he does those silly facial expressions and he's being just a general idiot that's how he started his career. It's him.

90's shit video quality and the video is like 50% faded. Lasts for 2 seconds and he has heavy make up on.

Definetly RDJ.

This was around the time that he was street performing as a mime which a lot of people don't know he did years before he played chaplin.
