(CBS SF/AP) – A photo of a man with a crying toddler is making the rounds online as people debate whether it depicts Bill Murray or Tom Hanks.

The photo was shared by the Facebook group “Reasons My Son Is Crying” three years ago. It identified the man standing with a crying toddler as Bill Murray at the famed St. Andrews golf links in Scotland. Immediately, some Facebook users commented that the person who shared the photo must have been mistaken because it was clearly Hanks.
