Meet couple Yamily Vazquez and Edgar Pareves, a pair of 17-year-olds going viral for a pretty...interesting reason.

The two, who live in Massachusetts, told BuzzFeed News they were celebrating their four-month anniversary on Wednesday.

They took a Snapchat selfie together, and then posted it on Twitter.

But there's something strange about the picture...I just can't put my finger on it...

Pareves said people point out their resemblance "all the time."

"In the pictures we take together, people will say that," he said. "But usually in our day-to-day life, people have gotten used to it."

"We did think [the picture] was funny, but it was just like, 'Okay...people are going to say we look alike,' but that’s it," Vazquez said.

Needless to say, that was...not it.

"I don’t really think we look that much alike…but there are some similarities, I mean…” said Pareves, trailing off with a laugh.

"We’re not related at all!" he said.
