Meet Aristotle Polites and his nephew Augie Behm, the dashing duo facing off every week on Instagram. Polites is a professional model and quite possibly the hunkiest uncle since Uncle Jesse. Yet, his pint-size protege, Augie, is already giving him a run for his money at a mere 18 months old.
Katina Behm, Augie’s mom and Polites’ older sister, thinks her younger brother’s modeling shots are hilarious (as does the rest of the family). So Behm decided to poke a little good-natured fun at her brother by recreating his photos with her toddler. She shares them on the Instagram account babyandthebody, which means we all get to enjoy her clever project.
Here’s a side-by-side of Polites and his adorable nephew, each posing in unbuttoned plaid shirts.
It all started when Behm snapped a photo of her toddler getting dressed.
“The image of him with the shirt undone and his bare chest exposed made me laugh because he looked like he belonged on the cover of a romance novel,” she told Huffington Post. “I took a picture and then realized I bet my brother Aris has a picture just like this on his Instagram page which is filled with modeling photos.”
Indeed, he did, and Behm found hundreds more images of Polites to use as inspiration for spoof shots of her toddler. Then, she staged photo shoots of her son in matching outfits and poses and shared the silly side-by-side shots with family. They loved them and encouraged her to post them online.
Here are a few more of our favorites from the hilarious Instagram account.
They look deep into your soul.
They work out.
Headstands have never looked better.
Those abs, though.
But first, coffee (or milk).
They’re in perfect harmony.
Every Monday, Behm shares a new dueling photo. Her rapidly growing fanbase, 43,000 followers and climbing, is eating it up. And not to worry, her brother is in on the joke and laughs right along with his family and Instagram fans. In fact, he regularly regrams #babyandthebody snaps and challenges his own followers to pick a winner.
No matter “who wore it better,” the weekly posts give us all something to look forward to when Monday looms. We’re can’t wait to see more of Behm’s hilarious photo swaps!
