What you need to know

  • A photo of a man in Egypt bears a striking resemblance to Steve Jobs.
  • Some conspiracy theorists he may have faked his death and is now in hiding.
  • The Apple co-founder passed away in 2011 after a battle with pancreatic cancer.

Conspiracy theorists have gone into a frenzy over a photo of a man who looks strikingly like Steve Jobs. The image popped up on Reddit and has since garnered thousands of upvotes, with many people voicing their astonishment at the similarities.

"I know this is supposed to be a joke, but WTF, this guy looks too much like Steve Jobs to be so random," one Reddit user wrote.

"Faked his death like 2pac (who is supposedly living in Brazil or Cuba)," another Reddit user said.

Steve Jobs hiding in Egypt after faking his death from pics

The image was allegedly taken in Egypt and features a man casually sitting at a table at night. At first glance, you'd swear it was a picture of the late Apple CEO; the wireframe glasses, the short beard, the thinning hair. The man even has his hand up to his chin, as though he's contemplating Apple's next big product.

But Jobs passed away in 2011 of pancreatic cancer — and, no, the Apple co-founder didn't fake his death, and he's not in hiding with Jim Morrison or Elvis.

Finding celebrity doppelgängers is more common than you think. This just so happens to be particularly convincing. What makes it even more intriguing is the mystery surrounding the photo. Who is this man? Does he know he looks like Steve Jobs? Did Steve Jobs have a long lost twin?

"He's not wearing a black turtle neck," one Reddit user said. "It's not him."

Mystery solved.
