They say that everyone in the world has a twin — someone who looks just like you, but has no blood relation — but what if your twin was one of the most recognizable famous faces in the world, with one of the most rabid fanbases?

Meet "Sherlock" star Benedict Cumberbatch's teenage twin from Britain, 16-year-old Tyler Mitchell. Mitchell capitalized on his look-alike's notoriety by hashtagging his Instagram pictures with #benedict, #cumberbatch, #sherlock, #holmes, and other related search terms, and some avid Cumberbatch fans in China found them, started commenting in Chinese, and made the photos go viral.

Mitchell has since asked the Chinese fans to stop commenting, but photos like these aren't helping:
Cumberbatch has such a unique look, but Mitchell isn't his only dead ringer: Yahoo TV's own Dave Nemetz has been mistaken for Cumberbatch several times as well.
Here's a profile shot of Dave hosting Yahoo TV's Emmys pre-show last year. (Sorry, Dave!) Can you see the resemblance?
If you know anyone who's the spitting image of the "Sherlock" star, tweet us a pic @YahooTV or share them with us on Facebook.
If we find enough of you, maybe we'll organize a Cumberbatch Carbon Copies meet-up! (Kidding... sort of.)
