Passenger Seated on Plane next to Stranger Who Looks Exactly like Him

by Adam

On a Ryanair flight from Glasgow to Galway via London Stansted, a man was seated next to a stranger that looked exactly like him. They were happy to meet and took a selfie together which was later posted to Twitter by the friend of the man’s wife:

“Guy on right is the husband of my friend. Guy on left is a STRANGER he met on a flight last night!” She later added: “I can’t stop looking at it. They are the same man.” .

BuzzFeed has the full story including their later random meet-up at a pub…and a third man who looks just like them.

“When he got on his Ryanair flight, there was a dude already on his seat. He asked him to move and when the guy looked up, he thought: “Holy shit, he looks like me.” They had a big laugh about it – everyone around them had a laugh, they took a selfie and that was it.”

Pretty cool story.

More intrigued and perplexed by the friend’s handle @elrottencrotch. Am I the only one that thinks it’s a weird handle?
