Is This A Picture Of Steve Jobs Hanging Out In Rio?

Why is it billionaires get to have all the fun?

This photo taken by Redditor The Horse Sized Duck (that name screams credible source) in Rio de Janeiro shows a man in a wheelchair who bears a striking resemblence to Apple co-founder Steve Jobs. Jobs of course passed away in 2011 from leukemia but of course that would never stop anyone from forming a conspiracy theory about how he never actually died.

Here's the photo that was taken and posted yesterday on Reddit.

Okay, that does look a lot like Jobs, waaaay more than Ashton Kutcher. Even down to the black shirt, glasses and hair pattern.

But of course this being a look-a-like accompanied with the title “Steve Jobs is in Rio de Janeiro, alive" could just be a joke on the poster's part. Or he's actually trying to pass it off as real with some decent photoshop work. Or Steve Jobs is f*cking alive and this guy found him.

One of the more interesting parts of the photo isn't Jobs, but the man pushing his wheelchair. In the context of Jobs faking his death and moving far, far away, him having to hire a local that has no idea who he is makes the thought that it IS Jobs a little bit more real. I mean, if it was an old white lady who we could link to someone in Steve Jobs' past, that could make this easier to deduce.

But I've never been one to think celebrities like Elvis, Tupac and Andy Kaufman are still alive. Although it's kind of a fun thought to have.

Alright, let's take a vote. Who thinks this could be Jobs and who thinks this is just horse-sized-duck shit.
