"I asked him to move, and when the guy looked up, I thought: 'Holy s---, he looks like me,'" Douglas told the Daily Mail.

"We had a big laugh about it – everyone had a laugh. We took a selfie, and that was it."

A friend of Douglas's wife shared the photo on Twitter with the caption, "Guy on right is the husband of my friend ... Guy on left is a STRANGER he met on a flight last night!"

The picture was also shared on Reddit via Imgur, where it has been viewed over 2 million times.

"I had actually swapped my seat on the plane so that a couple could sit together," Stirling said.

"We chatted on the flight for just over an hour; he was a very nice guy," Stirling added. "It turned out that we were staying at the same hotel, and we saw him in a few pubs that night. We ended up socializing, and quite a few people pointed out that we looked very similar."
