Have you ever noticed how Shane REALLY looks like Rumpelstiltskin from Shrek Forever After?
Plenty of YouTubers have cartoon character lookalikes: people have said Jenna Marbles looks like Dory, Lilly Singh has been compared to Princess Jasmine, and Zoe Sugg ~apparently~ looks a little like Jane from Tarzan. But lately, people have started to notice that our beloved Shane Dawson looks an awful lot like one of the characters from Shrek...
The character in question? Rumpelstiltskin. Yes. Really.
Here's a side by side for you all - but prepare yourselves, your life is going to change forever and you won't be able to un-see it. EVER. EVER. EVEREVEREVER.
See... it's burned into your brain now isn't it?
While people are slowly coming to this sudden (and hilarious) realisation, the whole comparison actually started in 2010. Here's the legendary historic tweet that started it all:
Rumplestiltskin from the new shrek movie reminds me of @shanedawson hahaha— 🆒Lauren🆒 (@laurenntaber) May 16, 2010
Then in 2015, Shane Dawson even made a video about it (along with his many other 'celebrity look alikes' and yes, he knows that people think he looks like "that motherf*cker from Shrek." (Honestly, can he live? Can he live?)
Then, as all memes do, it all died down and no one thought about the comparison again - until it had a glorious revival and in 2017.
Now, people are rediscovering the comparison all over again and Twitter is losing it.
