This Model Is Being Hilariously Trolled By His Sister And Nephew

The resemblance is uncanny. 😂

Posted on

Katina Behm has found the most adorable way possible to troll her younger brother, model Aristotle Polites — by having her two-year-old son, Augie, recreate his Instagram posts.

Katina, a (soon to be) speech-language pathologist in West Fargo, North Dakota, started the painfully-cute teasing last year by making this side-by-side photo and sending it around to family members, asking, “Who wore it better?”

Her family got a big kick out of it, and, after making a few more, she started posting them on an Instagram account, Baby and the Body.

Her family got a big kick out of it, and, after making a few more, she started posting them on an Instagram account, Baby and the Body.

The account received a fair amount of attention over the last year, and now has almost 60,000 followers from all over the world who look forward to the account's weekly photos.

The biggest fan of the photos, however, is easily Katina and Aristotle's 88-year-old grandmother.

Katina told BuzzFeed, "She doesn't have social media (shocking, I know) but she does have email, so I email her the pictures on Sunday night and give her a call. I love listening to her laugh on the other end of the line with my grandfather. It really is one of the most special things about making these pictures."

I love listening to her laugh on the other end of the line with my grandfather. It really is one of the most special things about making these pictures."

Katin says that taking the photos — now that Augie is a toddler — has changed things a bit.

"Now that Augie is older, I'll ask permission first. I'll show him the pic I want to work on and say, 'Do you want to try this?' I never push it. It's supposed to be fun, so if he's not feeling it, we bag it, but I have to be honest, sometimes Augie is really feeling himself! On those days, the outtakes are the most hysterical part for me!"

A trick Katina uses to get these photos right involves little Augie's twin sister. Katina says, "I use a lot of his twin sister's clothes because they're smaller and tighter on Augie, and more 'model like.'"

One nice thing about this project is that it connects Aristotle and Augie, who are separated geographically.

"Because I live in West Fargo and Ari lives in Los Angeles, we don't get to see him too much. But Ari and Augie were reunited this past Christmas, and it was fun to see them playing together."

Katin isn't sure how long she will keep this going — she thought she would stop when Augie turned 2 — but she's pleased that "these silly pictures" have resonated with people from so many different cultures. She says, "The biggest take away for me is that humor can be a universal bond — something that's important to remember these days."
