David Schwimmer and Nicolas Cage are two very different actors — or are they?

Reddit user spaghetticondom911 set the internet ablaze on Monday when he shared a doctored face-swap of Schwimmer, 52, and Cage, 55. The biggest surprise? It turns out that when you superimpose Cage’s face onto Schwimmer’s body, you realize just how much the two stars resemble each other.

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. (Start watching at 0:35 to see Cage as Schwimmer, followed by the rest of his Friends costars. While they’re all entertaining, Schwimmer’s is by far the most eerily similar.)

And if the Cage/Schwimmer mash-up has you in the mood to binge-watch some Friends, you’re in luck. Netflix recently shelled out big bucks to keep the beloved NBC sitcom available in the U.S. through 2019.

Though the show was set to expire on Jan. 1, 2019, according to the New York Times, the streaming service reportedly agreed to pay around $100 million to continue licensing the program from its owner, WarnerMedia. Netflix, which acquired all 236 episodes on Jan. 1, 2015, had previously paid $30 million a year to stream the show.
