Are you ready for the newest meme that set the internet on fire? Well, be ready because here it is!
On Monday, the Reddit user ‘spaghetticondom911’ posted a photo of Nicolas Cage as Ross from Friends—a.k.a. David Schwimmer. The face swap was uncanny and set the fans ablaze!

However, it turns out that the image is actually a screenshot from YouTube channel derpfakes’ latest montage, in which Cage’s face is placed over the faces of characters from a number of TV and movie scenes, including Phoebe and Chandler from Friends. But, the most similar and eerie image was the one with Ross.
No doubt the meme sparked many comments and jokes on Reddit and Twitter:
One said: “If we use Photoshop to put the face of Nicolas Cage to Ross, he is still Ross.”
Another one wrote: “If you put Nicolas Cage’s face on Ross from Friends it just makes him look more like Ross.”
This is not the first time that memes which are dedicated to Schwimmer, go viral on the internet. Last year police in Blackpool, England issued a photo of a man who was suspected of robbing a restaurant, and that man’s resemblance to Schwimmer was unbelievable.
The 52-year-actor saw the hilarious tweets going on and took to Twitter to let England police department know that he was not the guy they were looking for. He tweeted:
“Officers, I swear it wasn’t me. As you can see, I was in New York. To the hardworking Blackpool Police, good luck with the investigation.”
Wait, does that mean that the David schwimmer lookalike that was caught on camera shoplifting last year was actually Nick Cage? pic.twitter.com/4nxXzYrDkC
