Oh boy, here we go again. The internet is having a complete meltdown once again over a new viral picture that either looks like Tom Hanks or Bill Murray dressed in a ridiculous, bright orange sunhat. Stare at the photo for a few seconds and tell us who YOU see!
What color was that freakin’ dress again, white and gold or blue and black? WE STILL DON’T KNOW. Just when the dust surrounding that highly confusing outfit was settling, the internet discovers another viral picture that is driving us crazy. The photo, which was taken in Scotland in 2013, either captures Tom Hanks, 60, or Bill Murray, 66, making a funny face next to a crying baby. Twitter has launched into a full-fledged World War III over which actor is posing, but only Laura DiMichele-Ross (who took the photo) knows the truth.
it's tom hanks and it's white and gold and perception is fake and reality is a lie

@TheAVClub Tom Hanks. Definitely Tom Hanks. Or maybe Bill Murray. No no it's Hanks.

@SigmaRue I see Tom Hanks, I watch. It's a simple way to live.

This is very clearly Bill Murray…I think it's the upper lip stubble that's confusing people https://t.co/KGDyim2sfE

Is it just us, or is this debate way better than listening to Donald Trump talk about “bad hombres” and babies being ripped out of vaginas? If there’s one person who’s opinion we’d respect on this matter, it’s Hillary Clinton‘s, but she hasn’t tweeted out her answer yet. Unlike the presidential election, both candidates in this Tom vs. Bill battle have valid points as the actors share a lot of similarities. Not only have they starred in some of Hollywood’s top films, they’re also roughly the same age, both have greyish hair, and love making us laugh.
Tom absolutely killed it as host of Saturday Night Live, on which he gave a fatherly pep-talk to his son, the United States Of America, who’s been having a difficult time coming to terms with the presidential campaign. Tom pointed out that the U.S has become a lot gayer in recent years (which is great), but has immense debt to pay off and has way too many guns. But wait, now that our world has been turned upside down, was that really Tom on stage during SNL, or was it Bill?
