The bonkers conspiracy theory that Michael Jackson is alive and well in 2020 has taken off again after an uncanny lookalike was filmed moonwalking on Brooklyn Bridge in New York City.
In the clip, a man who is the spitting image of the singer during the Dangerous era in the early 1990s appears to moonwalk down the wooden planks on the pedestrian part of the bridge.
He wears a black hat and sunglasses combo that was one of the Thriller artist’s signature looks, paired white a bright red jacket, with white socks and black shoes.
The footage looks like it may have been edited to go in reverse at one point.
Giving an MJ-like spin, the impersonator then finishes the dance with a flourish.
This latest sighting comes just a week after we reported that yet another dancing doppelganger caused the wild theory to reignite.
Although the real Michael Jackson died aged 50 on June 25 in 2009, this latest “sighting” has caused many believers to question if the King of Pop is actually alive.
“Are you the real Michael Jackson?” asked a baffled fan.
“He’s alive people,” commented another with absolute certainty.
A third viewer wrote: “You didn’t die.”
Other fans who couldn’t believe their eyes suggested that it was an “old video” from before MJ died.
Meanwhile, a cynical viewer said they were suspicious because the lookalike wasn’t wearing white gloves.
Posting sad emojis, another fan who seemed to realise the dazzling moonwalker was an impersonator said: “I wish it was Michael Jackson for real.”
The video was shared on the verified TikTok account @michael.jackton.official – with the user a well-known Michael Jackson impersonator boasting an amazing 3million followers the app.
He even has a stuffed chimpanzee toy to play the part of MJ’s pet chimp Bubbles.
