At the end of a week of politics that's left us needing a bit of a lift we can always turn to dependable, yet oddly hot dad-type Louis Theroux for reassurance.
And when he tweeted a picture of himself with his spirit animal on Thursday we were there for it.
The photo that the BBC documentary maker captioned: "I have a dog-pelgänger!" showed Louis looking delighted and posing next to an award winning pedigree chow dog called - you guessed it - Louis Furroux.
The dog-umentary (sorry) maker's Instagram page describes him as an: "Award winning pedigree chow who asks searching and revealing questions in fringe societies." Sounds familiar.
While the two don't look alike it seems they're spirit twins by name and nature.
Louis Furroux's doggy Instagram account also reveals his: "Adoptiversary at June 9th 2018".
Since then he has been snapped by his owners investigating smells, exploring on walks and generally enjoying life with his owners.
On Thursday night the doggo posted a photo of himself reminiscing about meeting his idol and watching his namesake do his documentary-making stuff. One things for sure: they're the paw-fect match.
The human Louis Theroux's most recent three-part documentary series Altered States aired in November and is currently available to stream on on BBC iPlayer.
The docuseries explores America and visits two different states and three different ways of life including California's booming adoption business and euthanasia choosers and the culture of polyamory and non-monogamy in Oregon, Portland.
And, as usual, Louis meets some new people, talks to them about their views and gets involved with their daily routines.
