Earlier this year, the internet drove itself insane trying to figure out who was in a picture posted to the Facebook group "Reasons My Son Is Crying" back in 2013. Was it Bill Murray? Or wait, was it Tom Hanks?

Just when you felt sure that it might be Murray, you'd find yourself thinking, "wait, but he does look a bit like Tom Hanks around the mouth." It was madness of the "black and blue or white and gold?" variety.

Luckily, Tom Hanks settled the hot debate for everyone this weekend on The Graham Norton Show. And the answer (are you ready for it?) is that (are you sure you can handle this?) it's not Tom Hanks.

How does Hanks know that it's not him? "I know that it's not me," he tells Norton, "because I did not take that picture." Oh, well that's a pretty good way to rule it out. Other photos of Murray wearing the iconic orange rain jacket help confirm that the photo is indeed of Murray and were taken on a golf course in Scotland, according to InStyle.

Hanks did, however, grace us all with his attempt at a reenactment of the photo with the other two guests on the show, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and and Gemma Arterson, with Levitt playing the role of crying baby.

Not bad for someone who is not Bill Murray.

Thank you, Hanks, for restoring our sanity until we inevitably flip out over another image we find in the depths of the internet.
