In case you hadn’t noticed, romantic couples selfies have been sweeping the internet like the plague ever since social media was first invented. From awkward “we’re a couple” posts to cringeworthy engagement photos, there’s pretty much no escaping the weird world of social media selfies.
Every now and then, however, a selfie comes along that’s more terrible than all the rest. Take the following photo from Twitter user Andy, for example. He posted the following snap of his smiling visage posing next to his girlfriend along with the caption: “I love my girlfriend even if she’s a Gemini.”

On first glance, it’s hard to see what the tens of thousands of retweets and 90,000 favorites are all about. Why is everyone getting so pent up over a photo of a couple smiling? It should be what we’ve come to expect in the age of social media.
Seems like a pretty normal photo, right? Well, it does until you take a look at the mirror’s reflection in the background of the photo. Once you see it, you’ll never, ever be able to unsee it. You have been warned.

Yes, you guessed it. Andy’s “Gemini” girlfriend appeared to actually have two faces, one in the expected position and one… facing out of the mirror behind them. Is anyone else feeling more than a little freaked out right about now? I personally feel like I’ve just walked into an episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Clearly, the people of Twitter felt the same way. I mean, how else are you supposed to react to discovering the devil incarnate on your Twitter feed?

Thankfully, the Confused Nick Young meme was on hand to expel the devil and make everything right with the world again. I don’t know exactly how he could help, but it certainly got a lot of favorites. And that, at the end of the day, is what it’s all about, right?

Some people were so shocked about the whole thing that they felt compelled to bring out the cat gifs. That’s when you know things are serious.

Anyway, if you’re still feeling rather nauseous about the whole terrifying ordeal, don’t worry. It turns out that the whole thing was achieved on Photoshop and it was simply one big joke designed to freak the good people of Twitter the hell out. Thank God for that, I was worried I’d have to go and buy a whole string of garlic and a wooden stake. Now, what’s that rustling under my bed?
