Are The Twins In The Discover Card Commercial Twins In Real Life? Here's Your Awesomesauce Answer
In one of the commercials for the Discover Card It Card, a customer calls in and asks a customer service representative why her FICO score showed up on her bill. The customer service rep explains, and that's when it happens: The customer drops an “awesomesauce” in the conversation. The customer service representative realizes who the customer on the other line is, and vice versa. They are twin sisters. And the twin sisters in the ad are played by real-life twin sisters, not one actress portraying two roles. This is not a Leonardo DiCaprio/ The Man In The Iron Mask situation. The two actresses in the Discover Card twins ad are Sinem and Meltem Gulturk.

…Hold up. What am I doing? It's an advertisement, for awesomesauce's sake. I don't need a backstory. Forget I asked any questions.
ANYWAY, here’s another commercial featuring the Gulturk sisters:
