The only issue? Everyone on Twitter thinks Politico’s illustration of the New Hampshire primary winner looks a lot like National Lampoon and Saturday Night Live actor Chevy Chase.

There is a fairly strong resemblance to the actor, and a lot of people began pointing it out on Twitter—with some even going so far as to congratulate Chase on his “win” in the nation’s first primary.

Sanders is often portrayed by actor Larry David on Saturday Night Live, but perhaps the newfound resemblance could lead to Chase coming back on the show?

Sanders won New Hampshire with 25.9 percent of the vote. He edged out Pete Buttigieg who had 24.4 percent and Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) who finished third with 19.8 percent of the vote, according to CNN.
