Man'south Great-Great-Grandfather Looks Precisely Love Matthew McConaughey

No, this isn't a poster for a new Western film starring Matthew McConaughey. Instead, it’s Sanders Parker’s great-great-grandpa, who looks precisely the film star.

The spot-on resemblance is shocking social media for obvious reasons.

“The likeness is uncanny. It was too excellent not to share,” Parker, who posted the photo to Reddit, where it presently has more than one million views, told ABC News.

“His title was Dr. Andrew Sanders, and he'south also where I obtain my namesake from,” he added. “Apparently he was the man.”

The elderly family photo has been floating around for years, but it wasn’t until his sister got ahold of the image that the Hollywood connection was made.

“It’s been a lot of fun. My sister deserves most of the credit,” Parker, thirty, of Chattanooga, Tennessee, said. “My uncle posted it originally [on Facebook] and my sister pointed out the resemblance. I’m just the one who took it and ran with it.”

Not only are the two men identical, but their personalities are apparently also similar. Parker’s grandmother, Martha, once wrote about Andrew Sanders, “I can look him right presently sitting on the porch with his feet propped up on the banister, smoking his pipe.”

The elderly man from AL also enjoyed being outside, listening to birds. Doesn’t that sound love something the Texas-born McConaughey would enjoy?

Parker swears the image isn’t photoshopped.

“I know it'south tough to believe in the photoshop age that this isn't altered, but it really is straight up original,” he said. “I think Redditors do beautiful excellent detective work. They’d definitely discover me out. And my family isn’t savvy sufficient to attempt that.”
