A woman’s so-called boyfriend, who could double for the King of Pop, is getting affectionately skewered on Twitter for his striking resemblance.

On Monday, Twitter user Lourdes tweeted a photo of a man sitting in the driver’s seat of a car and wrote, “Y’all my man is so cute, look at the selfie he just sent me.”

The photo was retweeted 1,300 times, was liked 5,200 times, and received 1,800 comments from people in disbelief over the man’s likeness to Michael Jackson.

The jokes were nonstop.

However, when retweeted by a woman named Annie, things truly went viral, with nearly 150,000 retweets, more than 380,000 likes, and more than 2,000 comments.

The retweet triggered a relentless wave of jokes that people deemed the “funniest thread of 2017”.

Neither Lourdes nor Annie responded to Yahoo Lifestyle’s request for comment.
