Woman Transforms Herself Into Drake
Make up artist Promise Tamang Phan has garnered quite a following on YouTube, due to her incredible ability to transform herself into virtually anyone. Under the moniker, dope2111, the self-taught Phan has morphed herself into everyone from Angelina Jolie to most recently, Young Money MC, Drake with stunning effect.

In the 3 minute 30 second video, Phan transforms herself from an attractive young Asian woman, to bearing an uncanny resemblance to the hip hop star. It’s not a similar likeness à la Madame Tussauds, but impressive none-the-less. After uploading the video only 5 days ago, Phan has already racked up nearly 700 thousands views. Her Angelina Jolie transformation alone, has garnered over 11.3 million views in under a year.

“If I had Super Powers I would transform into any person in the world (like Mystique). With Make-up nothing is impossible. Watch me Draw different celebs faces on to my Canvas (face). Also other awesome fictional characters as well,” Phan explains on her Facebook page.

No word yet whether Drake has taken a gander at his pseudo-doppelganger.
