UC Irvine Student Finds His Look-Alike On Campus (PHOTO)

A University of California at Irvine engineering student was shocked when he finally met a fellow student with whom friends have been confusing him all year.

He had a friend take a photo, which he posted to Reddit. In the thread that followed, he wrote that he was "tripping like crazy" when he ran into his long-lost look-alike. Because he's "all Afghan" with Caucasian siblings and his doppleganger is half German and half African American, the genetic coincidence seemed particularly unlikely to the student, whose Reddit ID is Hamazing.

See for yourself. He's on the left.

The distinguishing characteristics were so subtle Redditor StinkStar edited the photo and switched their faces. See if you can tell the difference between the photos.

HuffPost has reached out to the students to find out about possible plans for any "Parent Trap"-style shenanigans.

HAmazing indeed.
