Fans of SpaceX founder and billionaire Elon Musk think they have found a historical doppelgänger for him.
Responding to a Twitter thread stemming from Musk talking about SpaceX's Starship rocket, a fan pointed Musk to a picture of a World War I Canadian fighter pilot named Raymond Collishaw, reports Business Insider.
Born in 1893, Collishaw was one of Canada's foremost naval fighter pilots during World War I, according to The Canadian Encyclopedia.
Collishaw was also a commander during World War II. He died in Vancouver in 1976.
Musk jokingly replied to the tweet: "Full disclosure, I'm actually a 3000-year-old vampire. It's such a trial assuming all these false identities over the centuries!"
This, however, is not the first time Musk has been compared to Collishaw. Both a 2017 YouTube video and a 2019 Medium blog post have commented on the resemblance.
Musk is not the first celebrity to be rumoured to have a historical twin. Actor Keanu Reeves also answered a fan theory in 2017 after fans noticed a striking resemblance between him and a 19th-century French actor.
The climate activist Greta Thunberg has also been compared to a young Klondike gold miner photographed in 1898.
