Loved-up snaps of this ‘identical’ couple have people freaking out

21 December 2016

No, they're not twins.

Yamily Vazquez and Edgar Pareves are actually dating. The 17-year-olds from Massachusetts in the US have the internet up-in-arms about their uncanny resemblance, after sharing a loved-up snap on Twitter on their four-month anniversary.

The picture has gone viral, garnering the lookalike lovers internet fame -- even prompting them to start a YouTube channel -- but Edgar says it's far from the first time people have pointed out their similarities.

"In the pictures we take together, people will say that," he told Buzzfeed News. "But usually in our day-to-day life, people have gotten used to it."

Yamily added, "We did think [the picture] was funny, but it was just like, ‘Okay…people are going to say we look alike,’ but that’s it."

"Best face swap of all time ?" another added

But the pair insist they're taking the internet frenzy in their stride.

"I don’t really think we look that much alike... but there are some similarities...” Edgar laughed.

"We’re not related at all!"

If you insist.
