Zach Braff is best known for his work on NBC’s long-running sitcom Scrubs, as well as for his influential 2004 rom-com, Garden State. Dax Shepard, on the other hand, is a comedian whose most recognizable work came in movies like Zathura: A Space Adventure, Idiocracy, and CHiPS. They are, by all accounts, different people.
OR ARE THEY?!
If you’re wondering how such a fact could possibly be in dispute, look no further than this recent tweet by Alex, Inc. star Braff, which features an older photo of Braff and Shepard side by side (taken by Shepard’s wife, Kristen Bell), as well as the exact same image except modified via a face-swap app. This is irrefutable evidence — the original and altered pictures are virtually identical.

This is what nightmares are fueled by

Pre-FaceSwap, you both look normal. Post-FaceSwap, Zach side looks like a wax figure that was left in the sun.

I hope one of you two is plotting a huge bank heist so you can pin the blame on the other and get away with the perfect crime. Sorry to whoever is the inevitable jailbird.

And while Braff’s post states that he loves the photos enough to covet a T-shirt featuring them, what did Shepard think?

A Face/Off-style team-up film can’t be far away…
