As rumours swirl around a bout between Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg, Musk's viral Chinese doppelganger has taken to TikTok to make it a reality... kind of.
Some people never get to see their look-alikes, especially considering the overwhelming population all over the world. But somehow there came to be someone dubbed the ‘Chinese Elon Musk’, a person who looks eerily similar to the South African entrepreneur.
It all began after starting his TikTok debut in 2021, with the user @mayilong0, otherwise known Yilong Ma, going on to make several videos of himself impersonating the Tesla billionaire in some seriously funny situations.
Racking up millions of views and followers, Ma is now ramping up his antics. He wants everyone to watch his fight with Mark Zuckerbox, a dummy version of the Facebook founder.
Widely speculated to be a deepfake, Ma has attempted to prove he is anything but fake with realistic videos of himself throwing money at the camera or showcasing his collection of cars.
But you’ve got to hand it to him, having a name that sounds suspiciously like his rich doppelgänger surely is a one-in-a-million chance.
Though he looks a lot more realistic than the fake Zuckerberg he patched up out of a person wearing a box, shirt, and face sticker.
In this hilarious skit, you can see Ma and Zuckerbox on a grass patch in a four-part TikTok series which consists of Ma beating up his opponent wearing some bright yellow shorts and boxing gloves.
But things might soon change as neither party have confirmed whether their Vegas Octagon bust-up is actually going to happen after Musk called out Zuckerberg on Twitter.
Replying to a thread talking about ‘Threads’, Musk tweeted candidly that he was 'up for a cage match if he is'.
This is when Zuckerberg sent an Instagram story the very next day in response to his offer, writing: 'send me location'.
So, maybe Ma is taking the tech fight personally and is simply wanting to send a warning to ‘Zuckerbox’ about how he’ll be treated if a case fight was to go ahead in the future.
Though there might be a lot of money in a Musk vs. Zuckerberg cage match, we’ll just have to settle for this instead for the time being.
