Despite the insane resemblance, 85-year-old Cocoon star Wilford Brimley is not 61-year-old Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid.

That’s what one Twitter user learned during Sunday’s Super Bowl thanks to a tweet from Brimley himself.

Barstool Sports writer Ellie Schnitt tweeted:

“Serious question, is the Chiefs coach the ‘diabeetus’ guy”

Schnitt is referencing Brimley’s infamous commercials for Liberty Medical.

Not long after, Brimley tweeted:

“Ellie, no. I am the ‘diabeetus’ guy.”

To which Schnitt then replied:

“I am so sorry, sir. Love you.”

Rest assured it was not Brimley honored with the Gatorade shower.

But also, have we ever seen Brimley and Reid in the same place at the same time?
