A photograph of a Pakistani man has taken the internet by storm, leaving redditors divided in their opinions. While some are awestruck by this uncanny discovery, others question its authenticity, speculating that it may be the result of artificial intelligence.
The resemblances are nothing short of astonishing. An Elon Musk doppelganger, the founder of SpaceX and Tesla, was found in Pakistan. Fans of the multibillionaire are buzzing with excitement over the photo of a man donning a traditional Pakistani outfit – a brown “kurta salwar” with a black coat. Speculations are rife about whether the image was generated through artificial intelligence mechanisms.
The photograph of the man bearing a striking resemblance to Elon Musk was first posted on Reddit. While it remains unclear whether he is genuinely a lookalike or just a digital creation, many fans expressed their surprise at the discovery. Others, however, question the authenticity of the photo, as there has been a surge of AI-generated “deepfakes” on the internet.
True doppelganger or not, several Reddit users made light of the situation, claiming that the man could be the result of a hypothetical baby between Elon Musk and Alec Baldwin due to his likeness to the actor as well. Some even dubbed the man in the photo “Imran Musk” finding him similar to both the Tesla founder and the former Pakistani Prime Minister, Imran Khan.
The internet was also rife with jokes referencing the controversies surrounding Elon Musk, particularly his recent Twitter debacle. “Put him in charge of Twitter, he’ll probably do a better job,” one user quipped.
However, this isn’t the first time an Elon Musk lookalike has surfaced on the internet. In 2021, a photograph of an Asian man bearing an uncanny resemblance to the billionaire started circulating, prompting Musk to address the controversy by saying, “Maybe I’m part Chinese.”
The enigmatic photograph continues to captivate and bewilder online communities, sparking debates on its veracity and the ever-evolving capabilities of artificial intelligence. With the prevalence of deepfakes and the potential for AI to conjure up life-like images, the question remains: Is this man a genuine Elon Musk doppelganger or simply a digital mirage? Only time – and perhaps more evidence – will tell.
