Picture the scene: You’re sitting drinking your morning cup of coffee, eating your bagel and watching the news. Suddenly a news flash – The King Of Pop is alive!
Michael Jackson, Tupac and Biggie finally come out of witness protection with the greatest collab of all time!
You phone your friends, family, even people you can’t stand! You throw a monster party with all their hits playing till the early hours.
But alas, it’s just a dream.
The truth is, however, legends never die. And Michael Jackson’s doppelgänger is well and truly alive.
Sergio Cortés is driving Twitter mad with his remarkable resemblance to the ‘Bad’ singer.
Sergio went viral after online joker Lourdes (not the Queen of Pop’s daughter) uploaded a selfie of him.
She pretended that he was her boyfriend and a frenzy quickly ensued.
Lourdes Zavaleta, 21, who goes by the Twitter handle Gossip Grill, posted the photo with the caption: ‘Y’all my man is so cute, look at the selfie he just sent me,’ followed by a series of heart-eyed emojis.
She was quickly bombarded with hilarious replies.
Her 22,900 Twitter followers, both mesmerized and shocked, dusted off their favorite Jackson lyrics in response.
‘Does he rock with you all night?’ one Twitter user asked referencing MJ’s 1979 hit.
‘So Billie Jean was pregnant with Michael’s son?!’ another cleverly wrote.
‘He won’t stop til he gets enough,’ another added referencing the Don’t Stop Till You Get Enough single.
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 on her tweet that has been reposted multiple times.
‘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,’ Lourdes told the Daily Mail about her prank.
‘It’s nice to know that so many people still care for and love Michael Jackson,’ she added.
