Man finds look-a-like in 450-year-old painting
PHILADELPHIA (WABC) -- It happens to everyone - somebody says you look exactly like an actor or a celebrity. But one man recently came across his look-a-like on the wall of a major art museum.
College student Max Galuppo and his girlfriend Nikki Curtis were strolling around the Philadelphia Museum of Art's medieval armor department when she spotted him hanging there.
"I'm giggling like crazy, and it's dead silent in the museum and I'm trying to be respectful," Curtis said. "But how do you stop giggling when you see this?"
Galuppo at first didn't think it looked like him, but then he got a look at the photo Curtis took, in which case there's no denying the resemblance.
Imagine finding your twin in a portrait of a nobleman painted by an unknown artist 450 years ago in 1562.
The photo went viral, but it's believed the painting originated not far from Florence, Italy, where Max's grandfather's family is from.
Still, security asked them to leave.
