Little Iggy joins Iggy Pop in Swiftcover spot

At first, I figured that Iggy Pop revealing "Little Iggy" wasn't that newsworthy, as the punk icon surely let that particular stooge out of his leather hot pants during more than a few gigs back in the '70s. Thankfully, "Little Iggy" turns out to be a look-alike puppet, taking a Pop-propelled joyride with the Iggster in this insanely amusing U.K. spot for Swiftcover insurance. It's kind of tough to tell them apart, since they're equally greasy-haired, craggy-faced and loud as they cruise around in a cool purple convertible. Adding to the confusion: Since the real Iggy spends most of his time shillin' for the man these days, he also qualifies as a puppet.
