A man from Suzhou, East China's Jiangsu Province, has gained overnight fame across Chinese social media as well as Facebook and Twitter as netizens find him incredibly alike to the richest man in the world, Elon Musk. 

Replying to his "long-lost twin brother," Musk said on Monday that "Maybe I'm partly Chinese."

The man's videos, which were published on Chinese version of TikTok and went viral over recent days, saw him standing next to a luxurious car and smiling to the camera from time to time. 

His appearance and even expressions were almost identical to Musk's, until he opened his mouth that gave away the downright Chinese, with a slight tone of a local accent. 

Amazed and amused to see Musk's "doppelganger," netizens have come up with all kinds of names for him, including "Elon Mosaic," "Clone Musk," or even a Chinese name, "Yi Long Musk."

However, it has drawn some controversies with some netizens questioning if the man had used AI face swap to replace his own face with Musk's. 

Responding to the accusations, the man said in his latest video that he will have a livestream on Sunday given that his video has been re-posted over 10,000 times.
