A photo of a fisherman on a beach has gone viral, with more than 150,000 views in less than 24 hours.

The Imgur user first uploaded the photo Feb. 19 with the caption "Why does this fisherman look like Harambe walking on the beach?" Harambe the gorilla was shot and killed at a Cincinnati zoo in May 2016 after a boy snuck into his enclosure.

Although the photo is simply a fisherman bending down to inspect a fish, people think the man looks like a gorilla facing away from the camera.
