Despite a strikingly similar appearance, this man insists that he is not billionaire Alibaba founder Jack Ma, but a simple neighborhood guard from Chengdu named Ke Quanshou.
While it would be a little odd for Ma to join the neighborhood watch after just experiencing one of his best months ever — in which he made even more money than usual, played awkward games of chance with James Bond, got interviewed by Barack Obama, entered talks to buy SCMP and actually bought Youku Tudou — photos of the “security guard” have gone viral with many netizens believing that the resemblance is simply uncanny.
However, most have been persuaded that this man is simply too handsome to be Jack Ma.
Jack Ma has long been mocked about his looks, with some netizens comparing his face to Gollum, a Picasso painting and other, for the most part, conventionally unattractive characters. However, back in July, he showed that he could poke fun at himself as well, uploading a series of “Ma lookalikes” to his own Weibo account and giving them some self-deprecating captions.
In the end, there are worse ways to look.
