Mayday! Mayday!

Separated at birth? Gyro pilot from 'Road Warrior' and Mystery?
"Mystery," the host of VH1's car-crashingly bad reality show The Pickup Artist often sports flying goggles as part of his brand. Yet this look was originally adopted by another pickup artist: the gyro pilot from The Road Warrior. And even though it was a small, rather beat up machine, he actually piloted an aircraft of some type.

(Incidentally, the hard-to-look-away-from show in question is on VH1 Mondays at 9PM ET.)
