Who are the men on the mud flaps?

I see these 2 faces all over the place on the mudflaps (mud guards / splash guards) of large trucks in Phuket. My wife reckons the bearded one is Al Pacino. Could be.... see the photos below. I reckon they look like the Bee Gees, though.

Al Pacino as Serpico

above: Robin Gibb? Or .. I have no idea!

The one below is a bit easier:

I've heard that Thai truck drivers like to put either Al Pacino (one of his tough, badass characters, maybe "Scarface") or "Rambo" on their mudflaps as a message to corrupt cops, "Don't mess with me."

Never confirmed if this is true but it seems reasonable!

yes, it is al pacino in "serpico", a 70s flick where he is an upright cop risking his life fighting all other corrupt cops - the other guy i dont know, may have to watch the movie again :)
