The Internet Is Freaking Out Because No One Can Tell Whether This Pic Is Bill Murray Or Tom Hanks

There is a new optical illusion vexing the internet, and it has nothing to do with panda illustrations or painted legs.

An old photo of a celebrity holding a crying baby has recently resurfaced on Reddit, and no one can tell whether the man in the photo is Tom Hanks, or Bill Murray.

I know what you’re thinking: these two look nothing alike, how is this even an issue? And believe me, I understand where you’re coming from. But, perhaps you should take a gander at what both of these matured celebrities look like nowadays.

For reference, here’s America’s Dad, Tom Hanks:

And here’s America’s Uncle, Bill Murray:

And here is the photo in question:

YEAH. NOT SO EASY TO TELL THEM APART NOW, IS IT?

Once this photo was reposted to Reddit, commenters were confounded by the optical illusion, and no one could reach a clear consensus:

Perhaps this man is simply the long-lost love child that somehow connects the Tom Hanks and Bill Murray gene pools??

Okay, fine. Spoiler alert: the man in this photo is actually Bill Murray.

You can tell because A.) this was obviously taken on a golf course somewhere, and B.) only Bill is known for wearing this particular style of floppy hat.

I mean, Bill has his own line of golf apparel. In retrospect, it should really be obvious.

Still … I’m not 100% convinced that these two weren’t secretly the same person all along. I’M JUST SAYING. As far as I’m aware, they’ve never been in a movie together. Think about it …
