Ty Jones is a 21-year-old from England who claims he isn't Ed Sheeran. And since the two have taken a photo together, that would seem to prove that Jones is not, in fact, Sheeran's alter-ego. But this picture of Jones shows why some have a hard time believing they haven't actually spotted Sheeran when they run into Jones on the street (the top photo is Sheeran, the bottom is Jones).
From every angle, Jones looks like Sheeran. They're even the same height, according to the Mirror.
Sheeran is like Jones's twin, who somehow came out of the womb four years earlier and thus looks a little older.
Jones told the Mirror that being Sheeran's doppelgänger kind of sucks. "He's such a big artist and I'm a massive fan of his but now it's like I can't escape it, people go mad when they think they're meeting Ed Sheeran," he said.
Looking like a pop star has made dating people tough, which he wants to do instead of finding confused fans to hook up with. "It's made my relationships worse I'd say because now I have to weigh up if they like me for me or are they're just interested in me because I'm the next best thing to Ed if they really like him."
While Jones has loads of people bugging him for photos, he doesn't seem to take advantage of his female fandom: he simply takes a pic and moves on. "When girls ask me for pictures in the streets it's annoyed some of my girlfriends in the past and caused problems. It's hard to explain because it's not like I can help it and I don't like being horrible to people and deny them a picture if they want one."
Jones has used his looks to get into clubs, though when it comes to singing on stage he tries to avoid that, for good reason: he can't sing. At least not like Sheeran. But really, how many men have a British baby angel voice? It's even less common than the face.
