In everyday life, we are bound to come across moments and experiences which are unlike anything we have seen. It blows our minds because it causes a break in the mundanity of the everyday. As we go about our lives, we pray to run into the coincidental or the unusual because it fuels our emotions. We want to be surprised and to see things we never hoped were possible. When the stars align, we must run with it and enjoy it while it lasts. In these photos, not only did the stars align at the moment, but for long enough, that someone could capture the moment for all to enjoy!
This man came to the beach hoping for some relaxation on the South China Sea. Little did he know that the mountains in the background would act as his shadow.
Once one person noticed, all of the beach-goes gathered around to view this masterpiece, snapping photos to show their friends back home. This is one true example of life imitating art imitating life. Maybe they’ll name the mountain after this unsuspecting fellow.
Life Imitating Art
They say that art is in the eye of the beholder. In this situation, the art seems to be in the jacket of the beholder. On this day at the Art Institute of Chicago, the museum hosted “dress like your favorite painting” day.
This guy took the easy way out, finding the most simple piece that he could find. As a Michigan alum, he had the perfect track jacket to take along with him. They should hang him on the wall too.
A Bit Too Trendy
When this blonde, bespectacled man walked into the store, he asked the salesperson for some assistance. He had never been shopping without his mother and wanted to look as sharp as the man on the outside advertisement.
Of course, he did not initially mean that he wanted to look identical to him. The store’s personal shopper helped put together a few nice outfits. When he walked by the store a couple of weeks later, he realized that he had become the store’s model.
I Mustache You A Question
On the internet, there is a popular meme from an episode of Spiderman in which Spiderman sees a copy of himself and becomes frantically pointing at himself and the clone.
This newscaster will certainly be doing the same if he encounters this bad guy. Perhaps he only moonlights as a journalist and spends the rest of his time robbing banks. It will not be long before the police have a new suspect to interview.
You Are What You Eat
Going to functions at your kid’s school can be such a drag. Not only are you forced to put on a smile in what is likely to be an unenjoyable situation, but you also have to interact with the parents of your kid’s friends which you cannot stand doing.
The only way to truly get through the madness is to find food doppelgangers for everyone in the room. Nothing beats a man’s head that looks like a chocolate covered marshmallow.
Camouflage For The Air-Conditioned Jungle
House pets have a way of warming your heart in a way that only pet owners will ever know. The worst feeling for a pet owner is the thought that your loved one is missing. Fluffy and Rosa must drive their owners crazy.
They appear regularly lost when in fact they are just lying around as cats do. They have two options if they want to contain their mini heart attacks: change the carpeting/tiling or dress Fluffy and Rosa in glow sticks.
Rainbows Are In Stock
Finding the root of a rainbow has been an age-old quest. Sure, they are made from the refraction of light, but it is fun to dream of finding a pot of gold at the end of the unreachable phenomenon.
Fortunately, we have an explanation that makes sense: rainbows come from the Rainbow store in the middle of this strip mall. Sometimes the answers to the biggest questions in life are right under your nose the whole time.
Glitch In The Matrix
One day, you hop on the city bus because your nearest subway stop is under construction. As you walk to find a place to sit or stand, you come across this bizarre scene and do a double take.
Did Gandalf clone himself before assuming a life on Earth? We must be seeing double and are in need of a new pair of glasses. Clearly, Gandalf 1 and Gandalf 2 need spectacles of their own to get through the day.
Competitive hide and seek has swept through the nation. People are taking over neighborhoods in expansive games of the childhood game for massive cash prizes. While everyone rummages around for the best spot out of sight, this fellow came up with a better plan.
He noticed the game area was covered in construction. What better way to stay out of sight than to stay hidden in plain sight? As long as he does not go far, he should be on the winning track.
It is not easy being a local celebrity. Some days, you just want to sit at the local bar and grab a beverage for some ‘me time.’ When you are a celebrity, those ‘me time’ moments do not always end up as you planned.
It is impossible to avoid the spotlight when your face is front and center on the bar television. He could use a hood and sunglasses to make himself incognito for the rest of the evening.
World Wrestling Entertainment might have found its next tag team duo. Cookie and Monster were sitting at the bar talking over their favorite sports teams when they realized they were a dynamic duo.
It only took a few hours of banter to drum up the idea of a professional wrestling duo. Step aside D-Generation X; The Cookie Monster Club is the next great wrestling staple. Few wrestling moves can top “The Cookie Dunkin’ Pile Driver” or the “Double Chocolate DDT.”
Inspired By Nature
Next time you need a new haircut, ask for the ‘Palm Tree.’ The new ‘do is becoming increasingly popular in cold weather cities which cannot support palm trees of their own. Palm trees bring about a feeling of warmth and tropical excitement.
Her hairstyle doubles over as a great houseplant too. Everywhere she goes, she brings that sunny Miami vibe with her. This photo is better known as a family portrait. She just wants to fit in with her tree cousins.
Seeing twins in public can always be a double-take worthy moment. However, how should one react to two sets of twins giving the same expression while standing and sitting next to each other?
You likely react like the twins on the left. There generally comes the point in twins lives where they stop dressing alike. Someone may want to tell these sleeping gentlemen to vary their outfits. Same goes for the hairstyles of the standing gentlemen. Individuality goes a long way.
Mario’s Castle And Luigi’s Mansion
When Shigeru Miyamoto and Nintendo released Mario Bros. in 1983, they never expected it would become one of the most popular video game franchises ever. They became so successful that they opened a couple of unassuming restaurants named after the famous Bowser-fighting, overalls-wearing, plumber brothers.
What else could one ask for beyond pizza, kebabs, burgers, and baked goods? We hear that the mushroom pizza is a real level up on its competition. Look out for any shells in your food that could knock you out.
Thrown Into The Deep End
Siofok, Hungary is a luxurious vacation spot. With beautiful beaches, it is one of the most popular vacation spots in the country. However, just because it is meant for vacationing, does not mean that it is vacation weather all the time.
With a strong rainy season, city streets can occasionally flood as such. At least the city’s bus stop advertisement models can still have a great time. Flooded streets are the best time for them to body surf.
The Smashing Book
Few things are more shocking at the moment than that first time a cockroach invades your personal space and scurries by. It is human nature to reach for whatever large object you have lying around and give your best shot at ending the insect’s life.
When killing insects, there is no better killer than The Smashing Book. It not only gives you insights on the best methods for pulverizing pests but also acts as the murder weapon itself.
Working a nine to five can be a gruelingly stressful endeavor. Sometimes we resort to nervous habits to get through those stressful times. This woman had a tough day of dealing with her boss.
She was never a nail-biter until this recent project. Desperate times call for desperate measures, and her cuticles have never been the same. Hopefully, her newfound habit does not end up fatal. The newspaper to her right seems like an ominous omen.
It takes a lot of guts to be a ‘vanity license plate guy.’ The only thing holding this guy back from years of ridicule is his adorable dog from where his message came. Not only does he love to see his pup with one ear up, but we get to see it in action.
We can easily ignore that he is a ‘vanity license plate guy’ because we are too focused on his furry friend.
Astronomers have recently upped the ante on their study of space. After years of attempting to reach the moon then years of studying what we found on the surface, astronomers have discovered a game-changing process which could alter life as we know it.
Scientists have found a way to move the moon. The process is still in its early stages, but scientists believe they have found a way to bring the moon to Earth, saving millions on rocket launches.
Jack Nicholson has had one of the most accomplished careers in the history of film. The multiple time Oscar winner is known for his performances in The Shining and One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest.
However, you might have missed his surprise appearance in Les Miserables. In the role of Jean Valjean, Jack made sure to throw in the same spice as his past roles. No one had ever seen Les Mis with a Stanley Kubrick spin. No one ever will again.
One Fell Swoop
The life of a street sign is pretty uneventful. They sit perched above the ground for days on end with nothing more than birds coming by to say hello. Street signs have feelings too. Humans do not realize that street signs fully embody their street name.
This is not so much of a coincidence as it is a daily activity for “Fell Street.” The Fell Street sign has been falling for years. We are just now catching on to its ways.
An Ageless Wizard?
After over a decade of professional soccer, we have finally cracked the secret to Mesut Ozil’s success. All it took was channeling the spirit of his biggest doppelganger. There are undeniable similarities between Ozil and Enzo Ferrari.
Don’t call Ozil only a playmaker or else he will make you pay with his spectacular speed. He learned how to go fast from his spiritual brother. Perhaps the Ferrari factory attempted to make the consummate soccer player and created one in its founder’s image.
Next time that you buy shoes make sure to look extra closely when finding your next pair of flip-flops. If you do not search every inch of the shelves, you might miss these stylish slides.
Shoe stores are known for disguising their most exciting options in natural camouflage, making a game out of finding rare items. At a $1.99, it is unclear if the shoes are cheap or just heavily discounted as a reward for finding them.
Out For Blood
Calling all blood banks – there is a bloodsucker on the loose. The Australian Red Cross has issued a warning for a ‘Vampyr’ terrorizing blood banks. If spotted, please inform your local authorities.
The perpetrator will likely be found at the reception desk ordering a Bloody Mary or Bloody Maria. Of course, there is no tomato juice in this gruesome cocktail, only the blood of Mary or Maria. This Vampyr must be stopped at all costs.
A Mother’s Priorities
Society has come a long way since its extraordinarily stiff values in the early 1960s. Apparently, we have taken things so far that our youngest members of society have successfully lobbied Congress to lower the drinking age.
Clearly, there are few things a baby needs more than a glass of rose or a bottle of Coors Light. Grocery stores have started to understand the true needs of infants and have planned their stores accordingly.
Bird Is The Word
The lost art of bird watching is not lost on this fella. He does not even need to look too far to find his favorite birds. They apparently just appear in his lap. We do not call this bird watching as much as we call it bird attracting.
When you no longer need binoculars to identify a bird, ‘watching’ is removed from the title. We are curious if the bird thought the book was a possible mate and came to scope out the scene.
Save The Date
When you reach momentous occasions in your life, it can be nice to collect memorabilia or personal items to remember that day. Few days in one’s life are greater than his or her wedding day.
This newlywed couple proudly picked up a copy of the local newspaper on their wedding day. Next time they do something like this, though, they might want to skim the headlines first for ominous headlines that could doom their future together.
Like Father Like Son
Most parents push their kids from a young age to become prestigious lawyers, successful doctors or even famous actors, but poor Matthew had another thing coming. It is almost as though he never really had a chance to become anything else with a last name like this.
While this very well might be a mistake in typing, it could also be asserted that the last name of Correspondent also had the same effect on his parents and siblings, so at least he wasn’t the only one.
Karma Is A Snitch
Karma is not nice – it pays back fully for the wrongdoings one has pulled in the past, and sometimes even exceeds it. What you might find to be a funny, harmless prank could translate into an evil practical joke on someone else’s account, so it is best to steer clear of such actions.
This girl thought it would be hilarious to pull the bunny ears sign behind her friend’s head, but the light in front of them turned the shadow of the bunny ears on her.
Sofa(r) So Good
If it says so in the newspaper, it must be true. And after all, if your couch is portrayed as an old, dusty one in fine print, isn’t it time to splurge a little and look for a sofa elsewhere? Still, one can’t help but think – what are the odds that the exact same couch with the exact same print would be used in the newspaper delivered to this house?
If the owner of this sofa ever needed a clear cut sign, this was it.
Employee Of The Month
Maybe this keen employee should focus less on trying to get the job done and more about not risking his life, as a handrail is meant to provide stability or support once grasped by the hand, not the foot.
This employee would probably land the much sought-after title of Employee of the Month, but if he keeps up this behavior, he will most likely find himself hospitalized before accepting such an award. More than anything, it is rather ironic that the sign he is carelessly putting up reads “safety first!”
I Knew She Was Trouble
Country singer turned bad girl and queen of pop Taylor Swift might be blamed for a lot of the drama in her life and bad-mouthed for having a rather scandalous love life, but there is no denying the femme fatal has managed to trump hills and break stigmas like no one before.
No matter how much impact the singer-songwriter has on her fans and in the music industry, we still doubt she would go as far as to place these two trucks next to one another.
Make Up Your Mind
Looks like the Evening Standard needs to get its writers in order, since they cannot seem to make up their mind over the simplest things, as can be seen in the picture below.
One cannot simply stress the importance of getting rid of social media and its horrible influence on today’s youth while simultaneously using their own platform as a jumping point to promote their Twitter page. After all, you can’t have your cake and eat it, too.
Cats are not the friendliest of creatures, which is why this picture is first and foremost surprising.
Putting aside this adorable cat hug that most likely has the internet purring with joy, we could not ignore the coincidence of the two cats being tangled in the other’s paws while the Sony television in front of them paints a picture of the professional wrestling company, WWE. Maybe we had it all wrong and the cats are actually engaging in a fight after they drew inspiration from the show.
I’ve Got A Bad Feeling
If Joe Power is indeed a psychic medium, he should have probably known that his show was about to be canceled. Writing that the appearance was canceled due to unforeseen circumstances is practically announcing the end of the televised personnel’s career.
We would recommend that Mr. Power would go on to work in a different field, try his hand at something new that he would prosper at. Although we are not aware of what kind if hobbies the man might have, anything would be better than this.
Testing The Taste
Sprays that have a bitter taste, just like the one in the picture, are meant to keep pets off the furniture and stop them from chewing onto things they shouldn’t, like shoes.
If you have ever had a puppy, you are well aware of the fact that while the big, glistening puppy eyes might have you weeping in a heartbeat, their young age comes at a hefty price in the form of mischevious behavior. Clearly, this spray didn’t prove its worth.
This astronomical phenomenon is a rare sight. Although it is not as rare as an eclipsed moon, there is still something rather mysterious about the way the sign reading “moon” was put up, yet still somehow manages to point at the very thing it is stating.
We doubt the sign was put up as a way to suggest the moon will be to its right at one point, but rather there is probably a town called Moon one can visit once taking a right turn after the traffic light.
Love And Marriage
Being engaged in a polyamorous relationship means that one person loves many people, as opposed to just one.
While this doesn’t necessarily mean the polyamorous person opposes marriage, it is usually echoed by such a notion, as they claim marriage limits individual liberty, promotes having control over another person, and are generally not pro the necessity of having a relationship sanctioned by the government or religious authorities. Maybe a person who is against the concept of marriage was put in charge of arranging this section in the library.
All Fun And Games
Gross and Butt might sound like a ridiculous name combination made up by a childish 4-year-old, but the truth is that these two Canadian football players are actually thick as thieves.
It is important to have each other’s backs when a part of a team, especially a sports one at that. For this reason precisely we will let this odd name merge go, but maybe the two should consider always having a third player standing between them.
The Republican newspaper takes pride in being on the cutting edge of the news at all times. They aim to be the first ones at the scene whenever receiving a tip and stay in line with their journalist oath to write about current events in an objective manner.
Sometimes, however, their eagerness gets the most of them – as can be seen in the photo below, where the magazine accidentally went head first into a home and thus gave their moto a whole new meaning.
It is not often that you come across a car that has a license plate with a number slightly similar to yours, so find these two that are so close to one another is outright shocking.
Maybe these two cars go on trips together, since their owners clearly felt very strongly about having the same car manufacturer and license plate. If this was a scene from the movie Cars, we would expect the two automobiles to be siblings.
“On the road to success, there are no shortcuts” reads the text on the truck, but clearly, this message should have been made into a bumper sticker and stuck next to the driver.
If the driver would have taken a second to read the huge letters printed on the side of his truck, maybe he would have thought twice before driving under that bridge – or rather, driving right into it – and thus, the horrible accident could have been avoided altogether.
If you were a detective trying to chase down a bad guy, the last thing you would want is to end up on this bus. It is like finding a needle in a haystack of blonde women with beige jackets.
How does a detective handle this situation – bring everyone in for a photo lineup? If you are a blonde criminal with a beige jacket, this is your safe haven. Be sure to thank your friends as you make your escape.
The Perfect Fit?
Anyone can catch a photo of a disaster. But it takes skill to capture a disaster that is also one of the best coincidence we’ve ever seen. So hats off to whoever took this photo!
We’re sure this moving company fits into most places, under this bridge is not one of those places. The moving company, “We Fit” should perhaps change its name to “We Fit, Sometimes.”
This one may take you a moment, but it’s worth it so stick with us. Yes, you read right, the name of the airline is Czech Air Lines, but reading it next to this guy’s head, it’s can be easily mistaken for Czec Hairlines. An innocent mistake, really.
Hairline and bald jokes are usually easy to make, and we like that this one is a little more subtle. We hope that this guy had a nice flight and that the person that took this photo didn’t spend the whole flight giggling.
Dressed For Success
We’re not sure what’s more amazing, the four models in the knitwear ad or the fact that they were paired directly above a hosiery ad. Clothing ads are usually carefully thought out, especially when you’re in the store itself. These two ads were put together in the best way possible, it looks like it’s a little too good to be true.
A wonderful coincidence, if we might say so ourselves. We’re wondering if sales went up after this ad placement – we’re sure that not one person shopping around this store walked by without doing a doubletake.
We’re all familiar with the saying “keep your friends close and your enemies closer”, well these two rice boxes placed side by side gives the phrase a whole new meaning. These two instant rice boxes were perfectly placed close right next to each other, and together, well, together, they make the perfect meal.
We’re wondering who was in charge of marketing and if they were aware that these two rival brands ended up using different halves of the same exact photo!
When No One’s Watching
Talk about product placement. We’re guessing the unforeseen circumstances that caused Weight Watchers to cancel their weekly meeting isn’t the Krispy Kreme sale, but it makes for a sweet (literally) coincidence. It’s pretty hard to give up sweets when you’re on a diet, it may be the hardest thing to quit!
We’re hoping that everyone that was supposed to make it to the Weight Watchers meeting stayed strong and didn’t opt-out for the doughnut sale.
And it Was All Yellow
Sometimes, everything from the exact same color just comes together and it wasn’t even planned! What are the odds that the exact same car models that are painted in the exact same color would be parked next to a building that is also painted in the exact same color?
While the coincidence of this is huge, make no mistake about it: this color is absolutely hideous. The closest word we could associate it with is yellow, and that is generous!
What a Cliff Hanger!
Some coincidences paint a picture when positioning one thing on top of another. Somehow, this person was standing in exactly the right place at the right time when he lifted up his Cliff chocolate bar and perfectly positioned it on the side of a cliff!
Let’s just ignore the fact that the bar probably melted during his hike through the desert. Who cares if that was the last piece of food you had, this is truly a Kodak moment!
Uh, Yes it Is!
In a complete case of happenstance, multiple copies of this newspaper were stacked on top of each other. Then, when this photographer looked on the side of the copies, he noticed that the exact same line could be seen on every corner: “This is not a coincidence.”
While we would have to agree with the following statement, it does seem extremely spooky that this would be the sentence that appears multiple times. It reminds us of something out of The Shining!
His Better Version
Many of us have stumbled across our doppelgangers. However, rarely do we end up spending a concentrated amount of time with someone who looks like us and dressed exactly the same.
This guy ended up getting a ride in an Uber and it turns out that the driver looked eerily similar to him. Everything from the shorts, belt, shirt, loafers, and glasses were more or less exactly the same. The only real difference was that the Uber driver has a mustache!
When you are stuck in traffic while driving down the highway, you can’t help but kick back and take a look to see if there are any interesting number plates. How often though do you see two that actually rhyme with each other?
Who knows? Maybe the two people driving each of these cars are related and they just got matching number plates to through everyone off. We’re inclined to say that this isn’t the case and that in reality, this is just a massive coincidence.
I’m Getting Mixed Messages
We call this one – product placement at it’s worst. Yes, a heart attack could be around the corner, but then again, there is a McDonald’s straight ahead. It actually feels like a devil is on one shoulder, and an angel is on the other.
Life is full of hard decisions one must make, a crossroads if you will (no pun intended) – but this is one that just seems a little too difficult. We honestly don’t know what we would choose – a mini McFlurry never hurt anyone.
The Cutest Horror Movie
The past couple of years, graphic tees have made a comeback. This guy took his shirt “PAWS” (a play on the suspense movie Jaws) to a whole new level. He photographed his cat in front of his shirt, and the result is too purrr-fect.
We don’t want to know how this guy got his cat in this specific position in time to take this photo, but we’re here for it. We’d like to see what else this guy has in store – what other funny photos he took with his cat.
What Came First?
This has got to be one of the funniest bulletin-boards we’ve seen – it doesn’t get any better than this. We’re not sure if this is a joke or happened, but it is hilarious, no matter which flyer you read first, the counter-flyer is just as funny.
We have so many questions, which flyer came first? Why is Zahara giving out cookies and carrots? We hope the Nutri Bullet made it to its rightful owner!
Who You Gonna Call?
Isn’t it ironic, don’t you think, a little too ironic? This red car hit the right bus because this guy looks like he’s going to need a number to call. Red seems like a recurring theme in this photo – the bus, the car, and the ad are all red.
It’s a shame that the red car didn’t stop at a red light because if he had, he wouldn’t be in this predicament to begin with. We can’t help but wonder if he ended up calling Neil or not and how this wreck ended.
Like A Skyscraper
Girls, we can all agree that there is absolutely nothing worse than getting a ladder on your favorite stockings. What if you turned the accidental ladder into a masterpiece? That’s what this girl did, and well, she did a mighty fine job at it.
Her final piece of artwork came out to none other than this skyscraper building, and we love it. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. We wonder what different shapes and objects one could make with a stocking ladder. Any suggestions?
Gene Screams For Ice Cream
Middle school is an interesting time for kids as many begin the wild ride known as puberty. As this boy learned about how to say various foods in Spanish class, his teacher decided each chair needed a small representation of food items.
Little did she know that her ice cream cone would soon be lapped up by the world-famous Gene Simmons from Kiss. With a tongue like Gene’s, that ice cream will be gone in no time.
Good Head On His Shoulders
Since the United Nations was established in 1945 following World War II, the international organization has attempted to promote and maintain international order and cooperation. It is one of the most criticized organizations in the world.
Apparently, even its own employees are getting in on the joke these days. This soldier stood in a perfect place for this photo to truly express the UN’s role in peacekeeping. Frankly, a UN helmet makes for a great prop for a funny coincidence.
