The Double Life of Henry Phyfe was an American TV show about an accountant who impersonates a dead spy. Phyfe and the dead man looked identical. He was ideally suited to pose as the spy.

Phyfe took his fake identity seriously. He pretended that his girlfriend was a stranger. Phyfe even avoided eye contact with his friends.

This TV show was last aired in 1966, but it may have inspired a Singapore-based company. Triterras, a commodity trader that uses blockchain, was the first Singapore company to be bought by a special purpose acquisition company (SPAC).
