Elon Musk Wants to Meet His Chinese Doppelgänger


“If he is real.”

Double Take

SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk is itching to fulfill his Chinese doppelgänger — that’s, if the person really resembles the billionaire in actual life.

But first, some background for these unfamiliar with the self-described “Elong Musk.”

In current months, a video of Ma Yilong, a Chinese man who seemingly bears a hanging resemblance to Musk, went viral not solely resulting from his uncanny resemblance, but additionally as a result of it was unclear whether or not it was a deepfake or not.

Now, Musk has revealed that he’s dying to “meet this guy (if he is real).”

“Hard to tell with deepfakes these days,” he added.

Who can blame him? Deepfakes have grow to be extremely convincing today. Just final month, a TikTok account claiming to be the actor Robert Pattinson brought about mass confusion, earlier than mysteriously disappearing from the platform.

Fast Friends

Since his movies went viral, Ma has rebranded himself as “China’s Elon Musk” and in March, he even posted a TikTok video in English — which he admits will not be his sturdy swimsuit — introducing himself to his new followers and telling them that he desires “to make friends” with them.

Musk seems to have recognized about his Chinese doppelgänger since no less than December 2021, when he jokingly replied to a non-sequitur side-by-side photograph of him and his doppelgänger that he could also be “partly Chinese.”

With Musk’s newest flight of fancy showing to already be in hassle, possibly his subsequent enterprise will probably be somewhat extra modest — like happening a quest to the Hebei province of China to find if Ma Yilong is as Muskian as he appears.
