Chinese Elon Musk doppelganger so convincing that people call him ‘Clone Musk’

With robots, space companies, and Twitter to his name, it seems that the world's richest man Elon Musk really does have it all.

But that's not all Musk has. He even has an exact doppelganger in the form of 'Elong Musk', who claims to be Elon Musk's Chinese twin.

Elong Musk has gone viral on TikTok for his uncanny resemblance to the SpaceX CEO. There, he shares videos of himself pretending to be Musk or thanking Tesla for sending him gifts.

Most recently, Elong gained 2.9M views for his response to the original Elon Musk's £33bn purchase of Twitter earlier this week.

In the video, he introduces himself before picking up a Twitter logo from a car and saying "My bird. My bird. I love you."

In the caption, Elong wrote: "This is a free bird. I like him and I'm going to go to him right now. Because Elon Musk is my brother."

However, some people are convinced that 'Yi Long Musk' is not a real person but an AI-powered deepfake.

Elon Musk actually acknowledged his doppelganger's existence back in October.

Responding to a Twitter user sharing photos of Elong, Musk said: "Maybe I'm partly Chinese!"

One Facebook user said: "It's a deep fake. There's a small glitch when he speaks as the camera is panning around; it's in the eyes and the mouth looks delayed."

Deepfakes are made by taking videos or photos of a person and mapping their facial features onto a 'skeleton' animation, giving their creators the ability to make the deepfake do and say things the real person wouldn't.
