Recently, Redditor xacbranch was trawling across the NYC when he came across a familiar face – famous Dutch post-impressionist painter, Vincent van Gogh. He sneakily clicked a picture of the guy and shared it on the site.


While the post did manage to get its fair share of upvotes, that wasn’t the end of the story. The guy in the photo, turned out to be a fellow Redditor. He even commented saying –

THIS IS ME! 🙂 ..Living in NYC, I have strangers come up 3 or 4 times a week and say, “hey… i don’t know if anyone has ever told you this, but you look exactly like….. ” Now, if somebody could just write me a script.

And then he provided a couple of photos of himself as proof, or maybe just for fun.

And this one even came with the ‘bandage over the wounded ear’ look.


They say art is immortal. I guess some artists are too.
