How Bowie came up with Aladdin Sane

In this Lego recreation of a seminal moment in pop history, Lego David and Angie Bowie decide what alter-ego will follow the legendary Ziggy Stardust in Bowie's on-stage repertoire. As we know, Aladdin Sane eventually triumphed, but there were plenty of other options in the mix, including Cobbler Bob ('Cobbler Bob! Bob is a cobbler, there's a hole in my soul').
