Chinese Guy Looks Like Elon Musk, Goes Viral as Netizens Joke about “Yi Long Musk”

They say that there’s a replica of everything you can think of in China – and that appears to be the case even for eccentric billionaire Elon Musk! A Chinese guy looks like Elon Musk and netizens just can’t help but joke and call him “Yi Long Musk.” LOL

Chinese Guy Looks Viral for Looking Like Elon Musk

There’s this joke about God making the heavens and the Earth (and humans), but everything else was made in China. While that’s far from the truth, majority of the products on Earth do come from China or have parts made from there.

But it’s also a reality that you do find a lot of things that are made in China, including a lot of replicas. For example, if top tech companies released a new cellphone model, trust China to have a much cheaper copy soon.

Clothes, bags, shoes, accessories – even food, medicines, and medical supplies get copied and sold in China.

Did you know that there also replicas of the world’s most famous landmarks in China? Impressive or crazy, we can’t really decide…

But netizens just couldn’t get their minds off the cute Chinese version of Elon Musk who went viral recently.

Shared on a Facebook group, the video shows a Chinese guy who looks a lot like Elon, posing with his car. Many netizens just couldn’t help but be impressed that this guy looked almost exactly like Elon, including the way he smiles.

The video sparked hilarious comments, with some giving him nicknames like “Yi Long Musk” or “Elon Ma” (a play of Elon Musk and China’s richest man, Jack Ma).

But skeptics are not convinced that this guy looks like this. They think that it’s an app or something – do you think so, too?
