A graduate of the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, Seekins is a bit of a work of art himself. He dresses either entirely in white, or entirely in black, with a trademark wavy mop of hair pushed up by a headband. Then there’s the pencil-thin mustache, the chin-length sideburns and the round spectacles.

Yesterday, a group of MCAD students paid tribute to their fellow alum by creating a flash mob of Scott Seekins look-alikes and descending on the Twin Cities marathon finish. One of them ran the marathon in Seekins-like attire for the entire 26.2 miles.
This is not the first time a crowd has dressed in Seekins fashion – just check out this video by Pink Mink for their song “Seekin’ Scott Seekins.”
