Robert Pattinson is Actually Related to Dracula, For Real

In some rather odd news hitting the Internets today, Twlight vampire heartthrob Robert Pattinson is somehow actually related to the real life Dracula. Seriously.

Researchers over at Ancestry.com have apparently unearthed legitimate evidence that Pattinson is related to Vlad the Impaler, the man universally recognized as the inspiration for the main character in Bram Stoker's Dracula. The cruel Transylvanian leader, Vlad III Dracula, is connected to Pattinson through his relationship to the British royal family. Prince William and Prince Harry are Pattinson's distant cousins and Mr. Impaler just so happens to be the Prince’s distant uncle.

"Tracing Pattinson's family back to Vlad was difficult research, but the pieces that unraveled created the perfect accompaniment to the Twilight Saga," said Anastasia Tyler, a genealogist at Ancestry.com. "Without any myth or magic, we find royalty and vampires lurking in Pattinson's life — making his story just as supernatural as the one he's playing on screen."

What in the hell are the chances? This has to be a marketing ploy or one of the biggest coincidences of all time.
