Adam Sandler has a double and when the man made himself known on Reddit, Sandler was intrigued.

Max Kesslery (23) from New York bears an uncanny resemblance to the comedy star, even though there are 20 years between them.

Having watched the trailer for Sandler's new film Do-Over, Kessler posted a pic of them both looking remarkably similar to Reddit.

However, the weirdness does not end there.

The caption reads, "The name of Adam Sandler's character in his new movie, "The Do-Over" is Max Kessler. My name is Max Kessler. Oh yeah, and I look just like him."

More than 7 million people viewed, the post, including Sandler himself who then sent him a pic.

Sandler then invited Max to the preimere, where they posed for a shot together.

And to quell the claims of fakery by the public at large, Max posted a pic of his ID, to prove the veracity of his existence.

If you're wondering which is which, the real Max Kessler made an effort for the red carpet.
