A video showing a man with an uncanny resemblance to the late prime minister was blowing people’s minds this morning.

The short clip showing a Lee Kuan Yew look-alike in a singlet casually eating in a coffee shop was going viral this morning.

Several users couldn’t believe their eyes and said the man was Lee’s “long lost brother” and one even said that we are living in a “multiverse.”

“The facial and body movements are uncanny. One of him is enough to last a lifetime,” Joanna Chia wrote.

One joked that it was an old clip of him trying to blend in with his citizens.

“Probably, this is an old vid clip of LKY. He could [have] sneaked out of his home, and wanted to act [and] feel like common or ordinary citizens,” Francis Lai wrote.

Lee died of pneumonia in 2015. He was 91.
