Thomas Douglas was headed to Galway on a flight from London’s Stansted when he found himself settling in a seat right next to a man that could have been his twin, LBC reports.
“I asked him to move and when the guy looked up, I thought: “Holy s***, he looks like me” Douglas toldThe Daily Mail.
Ecstatic at finding a familiar face to share the ride with, Douglas took a selfie to commemorate the occasion.
Lee Beatie, a friend of Douglas’ wife, posted the picture to social media, where it attracted viral attention.
“Guy on right is the husband of my friend. Guy on left is a STRANGER he met on a flight last night!” Beatie tweeted.
“I can’t stop looking at it. They are the same man.”
Apparently, the freaky Friday moment didn’t stop there, with Douglas arriving in the Irish city to find his twin checking into the same hotel.
“I later checked into my hotel in Galway to find my doppelganger checking into the same hotel ahead of me…We ended up socialising and quite a few people pointed out that we looked very similar.” Douglas added.
