Their matching hairstyles with not bangs vibrant yellow shirts and other details make it seem like we’re looking at a pair of brothers rather than a future married couple. It’s as if their connection was meant to be right, from the beginning.
The late 90s and early 2000s were quite an era filled with fashion choices, like poorly bleached yellow highlights and awkward bangs. This side by side photo comparison serves as evidence of that.

Initially one might mistake this for a picture of the Beatles. Upon closer inspection and noting the year it becomes evident that these are not the legendary band members. In truth it was impossible for them to be present in 2004. However blissful ignorance. This young kid appears thrilled to have come so close, to meeting his favorite band.

There was simply no one else, like him.
Myspace and the profile pictures it brought along were a defining aspect of the 2000s and late 90s. And lets be honest those photo editing skills were pretty impressive, for that time.
