Believers in a conspiracy that Michael Jackson is alive have said they are in tears after a lookalike of The King of Pop posted a new video on his Instagram account.
Sergio Cortes, a full-time MJ impersonator who performs the star's hits, made a clip to announce a new date for his upcoming world tour on Monday.
The uncanny lookalike can be seen wearing a bright red shirt and black trilby – similar to an outfit worn by MJ in 1992 – as he addresses his adoring fans with the news.
Talking straight to the camera, Sergio says: “Hello everybody, to all Michael Jackson fans in Doha, Qatar.

“Come and watch me perform the live Michael Jackson tribute show on March 13 at Doha Qatar National convention centre."
"This is Sergio Cortes, I see you soon," he adds, blowing a kiss at the camera.
The clip has been seen more than 28,000 times and has clearly made an impression since Sergio shared it.
Some confessed it made them cry after bizarrely believing the footage proved Sergio is the real MJ.

“You put my hair on end and I really want to cry because it is like seeing him,” a Spanish fan said.
Posting crying emojis, an overwhelmed admirer wrote: “Omg…I can't .just can't tolerate all this..just too much…thank you.”
Insisting that the lookalike routine was a rouse, another commentator wrote: "Michael Joe Jackson Give It Up We Know it's You."

Sergio Cortes recently went on the record to say he is totally "natural" and has had no plastic surgery to look like Michael Jackson's double.
The Spanish performer was even asked to get a DNA test by fans to prove whether he is or isn't Michael Jackson once and for all.
