(Newser) – Apparently, all it takes to earn your very own set of tween groupies these days is an eerie likeness to Justin Bieber. That’s what 17-year-old Australian high school student Jamie Laou has going for him. Laou went from a random Twitter user in July to, this weekend, a worldwide trending topic on Twitter, Gawker reports. How did he do it? By tweeting live webcam sessions showing his Bieber-esque mug to the world. He now boasts his very own Facebook fan pages, Twitter supporter accounts, YouTube tribute videos, and more than 50,000 Twitter followers. Could a record deal be far behind?
