If you been on the internet for any considerable amount of time chances are you have seen this gif of a man in the wilderness nodding in approval.
If you’re like most people you are pretty sure that the man in the gif is 100%, Zach Galifianakis.
Welp, I’m here to tell you that you’re wrong. In fact, all of us are wrong the man in the gif is none other than Robert Redford.
The meme is actually a few frames from a 1972 American western film called Jeremiah Johnson starring Redford as the title character.
Here’s a pic from the movie of him looking particularly Galifianakis-esque.
Movie aside, the image is more widely know as “nodding meme guy” and has been a thing on the internet as far back as 2012 according to Know Your Meme.
Splinter first reported this revalation today and a lot of people were shocked.
It quickly went viral on Twitter, and apparently everyone thought the exact same thing.
It’s an easy mistake to make.
The resemblance is uncanny.
Now tell the truth. Did y’all really know this wasn’t Zach Galifianakis?
