Fitness trainer has become very popular after being compared to a tree

A 6’7 fitness trainer Danny Jones has gained thousands of swooning fans across the globe after a Twitter user spotted an image of his very hunky frame online and compared it to a large tree – earning him the viral nickname ‘Tree Man’.

The two pictures, which were captioned, “This not a man, this a tree”, were liked more than 47,000 times and retweeted by 24,000 people.

Don't really know what I was doing here, but I'm pretty sure there was a large pepperoni pizza directly below me…

Jones also talked to the Daily Mail about his viral moment.

“So, the last 24 hours has been absolutely crazy. I went to bed the night before last just like any other but woke up to 8k new Instagram followers. I thought it was a glitch in the system,” he told them. “I already had a fairly large following, but that rate of growth was unheard of. I had no idea where all these people came from.”

Gotta love themed dinners ?
