In October, 1973, David Bowie made his last live appearance as Ziggy Stardust. (Watch it here.) Pretty soon, Bowie would morph into a new persona Aladdin Sane and later The Thin White Duke. But, for a moment there, he almost went with another unlikely character, “Cobbler Bob.” Or so that’s the playful scenario that English comedian and actor Adam Buxton imagines in this short lego video. Enjoy.
