With 7.8 billion people in the world, there’s bound to be someone that looks sort of like you out there, right? But what if you ran into someone that looked a lot like you? Like…really, really like you. That’s exactly what happened to these people when they were out and about!
Here are 50 photos of people who found their doppelgängers in real life and had some questions.
Are they long lost twins? Are their parents related? Is it just some freaky coincidence? The resemblance of these total strangers is absolutely uncanny!
1) Seeing double
Not only did this guy end up sitting next to his long-lost twin, they ended up at the same pub that night and shared a pint! What on earth of the chances of this happening? They were meant to be in each other’s lives!
2) Sisters? Nope, just kind of related?
“I Ran Into My Doppelganger At My Cousin’s Wedding And She’s My Cousin’s Husband’s Sister, No Other Relation,” shared this Imgur user. We suggest that she might start asking some questions to make sure that nothing fishy is going on here. It’s just too coincidental!
3) When you run into your twin at a party…
This woman was at a party when she happened to run into someone that looked EXACTLY like her! What’s even crazier is that they even happen to have the same clothing style and hair. There’s no way they’re not related!
4) Freaky deaky
If you saw these guys walking down the street together, you’d be hard-pressed to tell them apart. But, if they shave their mustaches and took off their hats, we have a feeling it would be a little different. Hairstyles and facial hair can really define a look!
5) Poor Josh
“10 years ago when I went off to college for the first time, people I didn’t know kept coming up to me and calling me “Brian”. My name is Josh,” shared this Imgur user. As you can see, the resemblance is really out of this world.
6) Co-workers, friends, and doppelgängers
These two have formed quite the bond together. They work together, they hang together, and they happen to also look like they have the same parents. But, guess what? They don’t!
7) Automatic bond
“I met my twin brother from another mother at the bar. His name is Adam and he also likes beer,” shared this Reddit user. It looks to us that these two are a match made in heaven! Hopefully, they threw back a few pints and found even more in common.
8) New buddies
Imagine going out for a drink, looking across the room, and seeing someone that looks exactly like you. You’d probably think you had one too many drinks! But for this guy, he wasn’t seeing things – it was just his doppelgänger!
9) Down to the jewelry
“Met my doppelgänger and thought I’d share. We even had matching hair accessories. I’m on the left,” said this Reddit user. It’s times like this where you have to believe in the word ‘soulmate,’ right?
10) Yin and yang
This guy met his doppelgänger and snapped a photo. Although, he claims that his new-found twin is a better smiler than he is. You’ve got to have balance in life and I think this guy found the yang to his yin.
11) How are they not twins?!
This woman was totally freaked out when she ran into another young woman that literally looked like her twin – she just happened to be in uniform. That is just too crazy! They could really pass as sisters without any issue.
12) Glasses and everything
You’d like to think that there’s no one quite like you on the planet. But? You’d probably be wrong. Sure, your personality and character is one-of-a-kind, but your appearance? Probably not! Here’s yet another random doppelgänger duo.
13) Literally can’t tell the difference
“My own doppelganger that I ran into at a music festival, plus a face-swap of the photo. The RHS photo is the original…I think,” shared this Reddit user. Can you tell the difference between the face-swapped photo and the original? We sure can’t.
These two dudes just randomly attended the same party and ran into each other. Look at their hairstyles! They are crazy similar-looking it’s mind-bending.
15) Their families can’t even tell them apart
“Bumped Into My Doppelganger At Subic Bay. My Dad, Cousins And Brother Accidentally Mistook Her For Me, So My Aunty Asked Her If We Could Take A Photo Together,” said this Instagram user (post has since been removed).
16) Come on now…
You guys – these two guys aren’t brothers, they aren’t cousins, they aren’t even related by marriage! But they just happen to be nearly identical twins and also share the same birthday. Was there a glitch in the matrix?
17) Found each other online…
These two women found each other through the website TwinStrangers.com. When they finally met in person, they had a photo shoot done. Can you see the resemblance? We sure can!
18) Finding your twin in all the strange places
When you’re walking around IKEA, there are a lot of things you can find yourself distracted by. This guy looked around and saw a dude that looked just like him! He might have thought it was a mirror at first if it wasn’t for the shirt.
19) That could have been awkward…
“His Girlfriend Of One Year Started Walking Towards Me Thinking I Was Him…” said this Instagram user. Maybe from far away she couldn’t notice the height difference? Other than that, we can see how she could make that mistake.
20) Now, you’re stuck together
These two men booked the same cruise during the same dates together. Now, they have 10 days on a ship to get to know one another find out if they happen to share the same parents! Or at least share the same family tree somehow!
21) This is just too weird
“I was walking around a while back and met my doppleganger, we even have the same first name,” shared this Imgur user. These two guys should definitely play the lottery because they’ve already beat some incredible odds! How does this even happen?
22) Same face.
Just so you know, you most definitely have a twin walking around in the world. Perhaps more than one! This guy found his doppelgänger and they have the same exact face. The SAME EXACT FACE.
23) Just a little longer hair
Here’s another pair of look-alikes that found each other in a random place! The only difference between these two is the one on the right has a longer beard with longer hair. Other than that? Hard to tell the difference.
24) So freaky it’s kinda gross
These two funny guys were almost a little TOO freaked out to run into each other. Why? Because it’s like looking at each other’s reflection! The photo is just priceless. They clearly share the same sense of humor.
25) Twins across the globe
This American man found his doppelgänger across the world in Australia! Maybe we have a “twin” in every hemisphere? That’s a freaking thought to think about.
26) When in Rome
This woman was vacationing in Rome when she stumbled upon her doppelgänger. By far the best photo of the trip! We hope they connected on social media to stay connected.
27) Two girls walk into a bar bathroom…
When you walk into a bar bathroom, the last thing you expect to see is someone that has the exact same face as yours. But that’s exactly what happened to these two girls. They should start tracing back their family history.
“Found My Doppelganger, Bought Him A Jager And Got This Photo Op,” shared this Imgur user. Of course drinks are in order when you run into your doppelgänger! It’s a once in a lifetime occasion!
29) So much beard!
“I finally meet longtime virtual pal Steve Burnett. Other people stare in horror at the uncanny duplication,” said Bryan Alexander on Flickr. They might not be identical but you definitely would do a double-take. They’re quite the duo!
30) Festival bros
Bandana? Check. Sunglasses? Check. Beard? Check. Black t-shirt? Check. These two pretty much nailed it with their ‘twin game’ at this music festival. The best part? It was totally unintentional and they don’t even know each other!
31) When doppelgängers become besties
These two randomly met each other at the workplace. Not only did they realize they looked uncannily similar, but they also had a ton in common. So, they eventually became best friends! What a story of serendipity.
32) The smiles even match!
“Just Now, Found My Doppelganger. Surreal. My Mom Told Me To Ask My Father Why This Guy Looks Like Me…” shared miloskuzmanovic. There really are some questions here. These guys look WAY too similar not to be related.
33) Celeb twin
This Korean star doesn’t know it, but he has a doppelgänger! We wonder what would happen if this man visited Korea. Would people have him confused for the rapper named Zico?
34) They’ve got the whole town confused
“When Retired Priest Neil Richardson Moved To Essex He Found People Kept Coming Up To Him To Say ‘Hello John’ – Because His Double Already Lived There,” says Demilked. These two have to be long-lost brothers, right? It’s just too crazy!
35) Photographer’s project
A photographer named Francois Brunelle went on a mission to find people that looked like one another. Here are some of his photos! These two men are complete strangers but look like brothers.
36) Another crazy match
He also found these two men. Their eyes, their hair color, their style, their mustaches – everything is the same! It’s mind-boggling that they’re not related.
37) Almost spot on
These two men might not look like a spitting image of one another, but you’d definitely get them confused if you didn’t know them very well. Their faces have some very similar features. Plus, they both wear glasses!
38) He brought them together
Francois also found these two men that look eerily similar to one another. Again, even the glasses make the similar details so crazy. There has to be some relation down the line, right?
39) Just a slight height difference
Other than the (slightly) obvious height difference, these two guys are hilariously similar-looking. Keep in mind that these two men are complete strangers and did not plan their outfits together. Crazy, huh?
40) Running into yourself in Thailand
This guy doesn’t seem very impressed to have run into his twin while vacationing in Thailand. In fact, he looks a little peeved about it. The other guy? Indifferent.
41) Remember the 1st guy?
Remember the two dudes we showed you at the beginning of the slideshow? Well, folks. Brace yourselves because they’ve found a third! How many more are out there?
42) Evil twin?
This guy found his doppelgänger…on a billboard…about crimestopping…and his twin is the criminal. Slightly unfortunate. Worth a funny photo-op at least?
43) A restaurant full of them
Apparently you must wear a plaid shirt and all look similar in order to dine at this restaurant. This guy snapped a shot to show the hilarious coincidence. Or…is it?
44) Impossible to tell apart
Sometimes your doppelgänger isn’t exactly human. They could just be…a wooden statue of a human. Like this lumberjack and his real-life human twin. Okay, well, at least they both have long beards.
