A Twitter user shared a photo of her “boyfriend” who looks just like Michael Jackson, the picture of her boyfriend left the internet users shocked.
21-year-old Lourdes Zavaleta, who uses the Twitter username Gossip Grill, shared the photo recently with the caption: “Y’all my man is so cute, look at the selfie he just sent me.” The image immediately caught the eye of her over 22,000 followers, who made rib-cracking replies to her post.
And her 22,900 Twitter followers, mesmerized and shocked over the doppelganger’s astounding resemblance to the Black or White singer, dusted off their favorite Jackson lyrics to reply with some witty jabs.
‘Does he rock with you all night?’ one Twitter user asked referencing the 1979 hit.
‘So Billie Jean was pregnant with Michael’s son?!’ another cleverly wrote.
‘He won’t stop till he gets enough,’ another added referencing the Don’t Stop Till You Get Enough single.
‘He wanna be starting something,’ a Michael Jackson fan shared.
Some more hilarious comments from Twitter users:
“Sis you dating the king of pop,” queried one netizen.
“All I wanna say is that … they don’t really care about us,” tweeted another.
“Who’s the man in the mirror,” one more asked.
“I guess I’m not his lover, I’m just a girl who claims that he is the one,” a lady cheekily tweeted.
Most of the people made a joke on their relationship, but only a few people could recognize the man’s real identity.
In reality, the young girl had no idea who the man was, it was a photo she found online that she posted as a joke between friends.
‘Unfortunately, he’s not actually my man. I found his picture on Twitter,’ Lourdes confessed to Daily Mail Online.
‘The post was just a joke between my friends and me. I posted the picture to be funny and I didn’t think so many people would see it and believe it,’ she added.
The man in the picture was really Sergio Cortes, a Spanish musician who travels the world as a Michael Jackson impersonator and performer where he sings, dances, and of course remakes the most iconic poses of the King of Pop.
For Lourdes, the sudden online attention was entirely unexpected.
‘It’s really cool that so many people are finding this funny since it was supposed to just be a joke between me and my friends. All of the replies have been so hilarious,’ Lourdes revealed in her tweet that has been retweeted multiple times on viral accounts.
‘Also I kind of feel like a troll since some people actually believed that I was dating the guy, but I’ve just been going with it,’ she said on her trick.
‘It’s nice to know that so many people still care for and love Michael Jackson,’ Lourdes added.
