A photo Zoella took two years ago is suddenly going viral.

Have you ever visited the beach and decided to take a photo of a random guy with his dog? We most definitely have because we're OBSESSED with dogs (particularly if they're driving cars on Vine).

Superstar blogger Zoella is no different. Two years ago, she took this snap on Brighton Beach. But do you recognise the man in the picture?

As it happens, this "random man & his dog" is, in fact, David Gilmour from Pink Floyd, one of the most successful rock bands of all time. 

The encounter isn't perhaps as strange as it might seem. Both Zoella and Gilmour live in Brighton, which is fairly small English city. Though the picture was taken nearly two years ago, the WTFness wasn't picked up until today (9 Jan) when journalist Jamie East spotted the similarities.

The comments are quite funny in retrospect. "This is the cutest thing I've ever seen!!! I love old people" writes one user. "They're perfect for each other" writes another. LOL!

Some of her fans did guess correctly, however, so even if Zoella isn't a fan of Pink Floyd, at least a few of her followers are! We won't be holding our breath for a makeup tutorial featuring David Gilmour on Zoella's channel anytime soon though.
