Bearded Doppelgangers Met On A Plane By Accident, Then Things Got Really Strange

Seriously, what are the odds?

So, here's a strange tale straight out of "The Twilight Zone."


While this isn't William Shatner meets a goblin at 20,000 feet, it's a pretty weird story.

A cameraman named Neil Thomas Douglas was on his way from Glasgow to Galway to photograph a wedding, according to Buzzfeed.

Upon arriving at his seat, he noticed somebody sitting in it. It turns out, that person was actually his doppelganger! Ginger beard and all. 

A friend of Douglas's wif, told Buzzfeed, "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."

So you would think, but it didn't quite end there.

When Douglas got to his hotel, guess who had booked a room at the same place?

Yep, you got it.

Strange, but wait. This story got stranger. Douglas then went out for a beer in Galway only to find that his ginger bearded doppelganger BFF was there again!

Then, all the ginger doppelgangers started popping out of the closet.

Now Beattie is getting emails and pictures from ginger-bearded men everywhere. What is happening, seriously?

Time for a beer. We're lost.
