They say everybody has a few doppelgangers around the world, and this guy found his this week.
On Thursday evening, 32-year-old Neil Douglas boarded a flight from London to Galway when he found his doppelganger, 35-year-old Robert Stirling, was seated right next to him.

“I asked him to move and when the guy looked up, I thought: ‘Holy s***, he looks like me’ Douglas told Daily Mail. The two took a selfie together and thought that was it, but it wasn’t over.
“I later checked into my hotel in Galway to find my doppelganger checking into the same hotel ahead of me. Total weirdness.”
The two ended up socializing and having a drink together at a pub.
“I had actually swapped my seat on the plane so that a couple could sit together,” Stirling explained. I guess it was fate that the two ended up next to each other on the flight.
You have to admit, they look a lot alike (ignoring the height difference).
