We’ve got a weird question for you: what do cars and celebrities have in common? Why, their looks of course! As bizarre as it sounds, there are some cars out there that look just like some of our beloved stars. And now, people are starting to notice this uncanny resemblance.

Twitter user Wittozern started up a viral thread by comparing a picture of a Volvo to American actor Nick Kroll. They inspired others to find other cars that look like celebs, including an automobile that has the same energy as Nicholas Cage, the 2003 Dodge Durango that looks like Vince Vaughn, and others. Scroll down, upvote your faves, and let us know if you know of any other car and celeb lookalikes in the comments.

Wittozern’s thread was unexpectedly popular. They got over 287.5k likes and over 33.1k retweets and comments. Which just goes to show that you can never know what’s going to go viral on the internet.

Not a match! The toy car is smarter, better looking, good for children and fun, too!

The latest Lexus models look just like Vader's helmet (the black cars). The white ones look like a storm trooper's helmet.

It’s nothing new that a lot of us think that cars have faces—it’s a widespread phenomenon! According to Smithsonian Magazine, one of the most commonly recognized faces in everyday objects is cars. That’s because of their symmetrical design and because their headlights can show off their character surprisingly well. If I were to tell you that a certain car looks sad or happy, then you’d most likely get what I’m saying!

A study by the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences found that the automobile experts’ brain area involved in facial recognition, the fusiform face area, is activated when they look at the fronts of cars. The findings suggest that because the FFA activates when looking at objects like cars, too, that the brain doesn’t have a specific place just for faces.

The license plate should say EXP 626.

We’re programmed to remember faces a lot better and longer than other things. Odds are, you can probably remember the waiter’s face from last week’s lunch much better than the sign of the cafe you were at or what kind of chair you sat on. (Or even what you ate!)

Because faces matter a whole bunch, it’s no surprise that we tend to go for cars with ‘aggressive’ and ‘angry’ faces, according to scientists. One study showed that people prefer to go for cars that radiate power through the way their faces look with “slit-like or angled headlights with a wider air intake. Now, let’s have a look at which car-celebs fit that description.

Jesus. God said, let there be beauty, and so he came to be. After this gift, God laughed, because he's funny, and gave us a dodge intrepid.

I would see him as someone that would own that car, but I don't think it looks like him at all. We can't even see the front
