American actor Steve Martin was left bewildered as he saw his doppelganger tending to a dog in a viral video. Netizens were enthralled to watch a dog nestle close to a man who looked a lot like Martin. Retweeting the video, Martin wrote, “I am relieved to find out this is not me. I was starting to doubt my sanity.”
In the video, the actor’s lookalike was seen sitting on a couch, with a dachshund on his lap. The man clicked its pictures and covered it with a blanket.
Grabbing Martin’s attention, Amee Vanderpool, a journalist from America, shared the video on Twitter. Vanderpool also said the video is apparently from a series called “Dads with dogs they didn’t want,” reminding people of how reluctant parents would be to bring pets back home. As time passes, paw parents cement their bond with the pets.
Vanderpool wrote on the micro-blogging platform, “A man who looks like Steve Martin, in a garden, tending to this dachshund is exactly what I need this morning. Apparently, this is from a series called, ‘Dads with dogs they didn’t want’.”

Just saying.” However, as the post went viral, the woman, who actually posted the video commented on the thread saying it was her dad.

You can’t do anything but be sweet to his little muffin baby puppy – OR DIE. I mean.” The Little Owl Perch, a user, wrote, “Steve Martin finding out this is in fact NOT him playing with a dachshund just made my day.”

My dad and his little dachshund were inseparable for nearly 18 years. Geno passed in July and my dad on 9/2. I miss them both like crazy. A dachshund is forever faithful. pic.twitter.com/TrGR0FAveB

Good to see. I’m honored to be able to move in with my 96 yo Dad & be roommates 🙏 He still plays golf daily & lives alone. He will need help & he wants me to come to hang together, until one of us passes. The point. He’s mostly excited that I’m bringing my Golden Retriever. 🙏
