And now his wife Chrissy Teigen is trolling him about it.

Ever looked at John Legend and thought to yourself: ‘He really reminds me of someone, but I can’t quite put my finger on it?’ Well, the guessing game is over and you have Twitter to thank.

On Monday, Twitter user Emily Sowah pointed out the striking resemblance between the multiple Grammy winner and cartoon aardvark Arthur without his glasses. Compelling side-by-side photo evidence that back up the claim has now gone viral, leaving Legend sounding pretty baffled.

As you can see, Legend is claiming to have not “even heard of this Arthur character til now. Was he around when I was a kid?” Obviously the G.O.O.D Music man doesn’t spend enough time on Twitter where for the last year, the PBS cartoon has been turned into memes a thousand times over.

Naturally, other Twitter users have added to the hilarity with their own memes further highlighting the similarity.

For what it’s worth – Arthur, like Legend, is also a great pianist.
