Is Elon Musk ready to enter the “chaotic multiverse”?
About half a year ago, when TIME magazine honored Elon Musk as “2021 Person of the Year,” netizens suddenly turned their attention to a Chinese man who looks exactly like the head of Tesla. . If Musk is the most popular character on Twitter today, copying him is no less competitive, as he quickly became a million-view TikToker by posing as the world’s richest billionaire.
This guy is so famous that recently, Elon Musk himself had to express his desire to meet face to face to see how true he was. He also did not forget to express his doubts about deepfake technology, and did not rule out the possibility that it is just a character who has been processed to bring his face “like” his to interact on social networks. .
“I would love to meet this guy (if he really exists),” Elon Musk shared on Twitter, “Who knows, with today’s deepfakes.”
Elon Musk has absolutely every reason to suspect that the videos his copy of him posted on TikTok are simply “fake.” After being spotted by netizens in late 2021 thanks to his strikingly similar appearance to the CEO of Tesla, this guy’s TikTok channel has grown rapidly at breakneck speed, and now has 3.4 million likes. like. and nearly 230,000 followers.
Self-proclaimed “Yi Long Ma” (a parody of Elon Musk), this guy constantly shoots “trending” videos with his idol, not hesitating to hide his intention to take advantage of his human appearance. his own reputation for content creation. In a recent video, “Yi Long Ma” was recorded holding the Twitter logo, expressing his love for Twitter and that he will soon use it in the future “to support his brother”. brother Elon Musk.”
Yi Long Ma supports the acquisition of Twitter by “brother” Elon Musk.
It’s those videos that make a lot of people, perhaps including Elon Musk, suspicious of this guy. Things don’t stop at a match like half a year ago, and this could be a top-tier deepfake exploit to fool people. Hopefully, Elon Musk will get a chance to go toe-to-toe with the Chinese clone of him to answer this question from the online community.
