Having a twin sibling has built-in benefits with no shortage on antics. One such shenanigan that will always remain popular is being in two places simultaneously.
Future educator Marcus Williams capitalized on the advantage of being a twin when he was home in bed sick and missed out on his high school picture day. Fortunately, his twin brother Malcolm posed as both himself and as his ailing lookalike for their yearbook portrait that day and has presently become an epic throwback photo.
my twin is the GOAT 😂😂he took both of our pics for Picture day back in HS when I was sick https://t.co/BdwRXLlaJ8— Marcus Williams (@Marcus Williams) 1528155691.0
To show contrast between the two personalities, Malcolm gave his best impression of his brother with a laid-back expression and then represented himself by flashing his pearly whites.
Lmaooooo the fact that he switched up the expressions is soooo hilarious 🤣😭 https://t.co/8RF8aB16Q7— c.r.y.s (@c.r.y.s) 1528173556.0

This was a stealth operation.

Marcus's tweet of his brother parent-trapping his class went viral with over 52 thousand likes, but he's hoping to take the juxtaposed photos of Malcolm to the next level: getting on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
He launched a tagging campaign.
