Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

Doppelganger is a science-fiction web musical created by EK Films with music written by A.J. Holmes and lyrics by Ethan Kuperberg. It tells the story of Victor Walton, an unpopular Nerd who is unaccepted by all of the cliques in his school and wants to get with Elizabeth, the girl of his dreams. To fix this, he clones a cooler version of himself. Things seem to turn out well at first, but then things don't turn out according to plan. The first part can be found here. The soundtrack can be downloaded here.
