People Are Finding Their Doppelgängers In Museums—And Twitter Is Obsessed

4 months ago

There's a longstanding theory that's half-tongue-in-cheek and half-serious that Keanu Reeves is immortal.

What started off as a joke about the man never aging has got some people pretty much convinced that the actor has been around forever, and works of classical art are being cited as "proof" of this phenomenon.

Now I'd like to believe that the man will be with humanity for as long as our species lasts. I got to chat with him once while working as an extra in the first John Wick movie and thought he was absolutely delightful. We need more people like Keanu Reeves in this world.

And if you want to believe he is immortal and are using classical works of art as a compass to guide your logic in this decision, then I've got news for you: he isn't the only one.

Because as it turns out, there are tons of people who have found their doppelgangers in old paintings.

Everyday, normal people just walking around a museum or art exhibit and finding that, holy moly, they must be time travelers or something.

I mean just look at this one, the beard, the nose...just everything.

Are you going to try and tell me this isn't the same exact man?

We have royalty in sweatpants right before us, people.

It's stuff like this that'll have you believing in reincarnation.

Or maybe that the plot from 12 Monkeys isn't that far-fetched after all.

Down. To. The. Pattern. On. The. Glasses.

I mean what the heck are the chances you look like a white samurai?! There has to be some strange cosmic-stuff going on here.

Keanu Reeves isn't the only celebrity who's immortal, as it turns out.

Sorry Sophie Turner, your secret is out.

I don't even know what to say at this point.

I'm thoroughly convinced that every single person in the world has a doppelganger.

I guess if you spend enough time in museums, you'll find them.

I mean OK, the pose has a lot to do with this one...

But others are just undeniable.

People have different gendered-doppelgangers too.

Slap a military outfit on this guy and you'd be convinced he came right out of the painting.

Like this guy did.

Great, now I'm sufficiently freaked out.
