This High School Senior Mimicked His Dad's Prom Outfit for His Prom

By Bre'Anna Grant - May 11 2017

High school senior Alec Vercher caught the eyes of thousands on Twitter when he posted a tweet of his father's 1994 prom picture comparing it to his 2017 prom picture. 

Vercher said it was just one big coincidence. 

"The funny part is that my mom and I went shopping after school at the tux shop and I picked out a suit that would match my dates dress and the theme," Vercher told Fresh U via Twitter DMs. "When we came back home, my dad looked back in his senior photos and saw the picture of him."

His tweet has become a sensation, with over 54,000 retweets and 239,000 likes. 

People on Twitter were amazed and even commented on how handsome his dad was. 

"I had absolutely no idea that it was going to go viral. I just thought a few of my friends would like/retweet it," Vercher said.

We know one thing for sure: the apple does not fall far from the tree!
