Finally. A feel-good story! Jonah Hill was rushed by a photo-seeking fan whilst roaming the streets of New York Tuesday, a fan whose miraculously on-brand appearance and general demeanor should have been a dead giveaway as to his bragworthy identity:

Yes. Jonah Hill, beloved film actor and confirmed god of skatewear, has a fan named Leonardo DiCaprio. Note the hat, the glasses, the blue shirt, those damn cargo shorts. 'Tis clearly Leo, yet our guy Jonah still falls for it. According to the pranksters over at the Daily Mail, this remarkable feat of human ingenuity took place on the sidewalks of West Village Monday afternoon.

Given that Jonah Hill ended this emotional fan encounter with a full-on hug, no one hesitated to quickly and enthusiastically flip this special moment into Twitter gold:

I wonder if Leonardo DiCaprio makes dad jokes. I bet he does.

@LeoActivities Why is Leo in shorts and a t shirt and Jonah Hill wearing jeans and a jacket. Are they in the same climate?

Others had climate-related questions:

When DiCaprio isn't pranking his former Wolf of Wall Street co-stars in public, he's busy with more serious fare such as hosting high-priced fundraiser luncheons for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and taking presumably prank-free meetings with Pope Francis. He's also been known to do stuff like win an Oscar (or two! kinda) for battling bears and—surely we can all relate to this one—hanging out with actual great white sharks.

But back to the prank. This is really good news for fans of everyone's favorite washed Russian Leonardo DiCaprio doppelgänger, who will hopefully be emulating this prank with a soon-to-be-discovered Jonah Hill doppelgänger. Prop tip for whoever gets the gig: the real Jonah has been known to hand out these hilarious business cards in lieu of honoring autograph requests:

Let's hope he handed Leo one of those gems on Monday.
