This article contains spoilers for the Netflix series You. You have been warned. 

Nothing gets by TikTok, honestly. TikTok exposes all. One eagle-eyed fan of the hit Netflix show You noticed a huge blunder in one scene and shared it to on TikTok to the bewilderment of everyone else.

As per Celebrity Nine, the TikToker in question, @annabellleryan, pointed out that a profile picture of Penn Badgley’s central creepy character Joe Goldberg was, in fact, definitely not him at all.

“IM LOSING MY MIND????WHO IS THAT?????? ITS JOEY SILVERBERG,” they comically captioned the video (get it?).

The scene boasting the blunder sees Joe’s wife Love (Victoria Pedretti) texting his new boss, librarian Marienne (Tati Gabrielle). If you stopped the scene and zoomed in though, like @annabellleryan did, the profile picture is not of Joe at all.

The internet was soon laughing along at the mistake, with confusion reigning as to how nobody involved in filming the scene picked it up. “That’s Joe Mama,” and “That’s Joseph Iceberg,” were some of the best guesses.

Another user referenced another famous Badgley character: “That’s Dan Humphrey,” they wrote. “That’s Gossip Girl,” another laughed.

Most were simply puzzled at how they couldn’t find one single picture of the actual character Joe Goldberg to use. You’d think it’d be simple enough. How lazy are the You team?

Season three of the popular psychological thriller series premiered last week on Friday, October 15th. It was also renewed for a fourth season ahead of the premiere.

In the new season, Joe now lives in the ‘burbs with his wife and their newborn son, Henry. I doubt he’ll be able to relinquish his murderous tendencies and focus on parenthood though. Just a hunch.
