Every single day it seems the internet finds a way to keep parts of our bored society entertained. Lately, it seems that time travel is the new internet thing.
Now, another video has surfaced the internet claiming that time travelers are real and exist all around us.
For evidence, the video offers bizarre images of modern-day celebrities and their ‘lookalikes’ taken a few decades ago.
Some would call it a perfect mystery.
The video uploaded to YouTube channel—wait for it—Time Traveler is titled “Video Proof that shows Time Travel really does exist.” In the video, we see ‘plenty of evidence’ of time traveling people as the footage showcases some of the most eerily similar images of celebrities and their ancient counterparts.
But the time Traveler channel isn’t the only one to have posted such similarities. In fact, more popular YouTube Channel Bright side has done the same in the past, picking out quite a few interesting images:
Many commentators argue its time travel and evidence how celebrities such as Nicolas Cage, Johnny Depp, and Matthew McConaughey have been around longer than anyone would imagine.
The similarities between modern-day celebrities and their ancient lookalikes are striking according to some, and the entire subject is shrouded in mystery, as many of the pictures are convincing, and you can’t deny the similarities.
But is this really the ultimate evidence of time travel?
Among the numerous images presented in the video, we see popular Pirates of The Caribbean actor Johnny Depp and an image of someone who looks eerily similar to him.
It turns out that the image of Depp was first shared by Michael Johnstone, who noticed the incredible resemblance of musician great-grandfather and Mr. Depp.
But in addition to Captain Sparrow, err I mean Johnny Depp, Eddie Murphy is also featured in the video with a man looking very much like him.
The man in the photo looks very similar to Eddie Murphy and is believed to date back to the 1920’s.
However, given the incredible similarities, many people argue the images were photoshopped.
The video also features popular musician Jay-Z.
The lookalike image was believed to have been photographed in the streets of Brooklyn in New York, in 1939. Shawn Corey Carter, popularly known as Jay-Z was born on December 4, 1969, in Brooklyn, New York.
Another famous person to appear in the video is Hollywood mega-star, Nicolas Cage.
The video offers an image believed to have been taken in the 1860’s that looks eerily similar to Mr. Cage.
In fact, Nicolas Cage has spoken out about claims he was a Vampire after the lookalike image surfaced the internet.
Speaking to the David Letterman nighttime show.
Mr. Cage said: “Now look I don’t drink blood, and last time I looked in the mirror I had a reflection, so I’m not going with his vampire theory. I’m just not going to do it.”
But in addition to Mr. Cage, Johnny Depp, and Jay-Z, the time-traveling video also features Matthew McConaughey and his 19th-century lookalike.
The image of Mr. McConaughey was uploaded to Reddit by user Sanders Parker, who said: “The likeness is uncanny. “It was too good not to share. His name was Dr. Andrew Sanders, and he’s also where I get my namesake from.
“Apparently he was the man.”
Oh, and, did I forget to show you this image of Facebook King Mark Zuckerberg and a portrait of King Philip IV of Spain?
What an eerie coincidence how two Kings share so many physical similarities.
Anyway, rather than being time traveling space troopers as the video suggests, these images, as well as countless other photographs found across the internet are only proof that through history on planet Earth, many people have existed who have shared a few physical features that made them look like someone else.
I am also sure that this will continue happening and that in a hundred years or so, similar coincidences will be pointed out.
