The Guy Perfectly Impersonating 29 Celebrities While Singing An Original Song Is A Fake

Posted: Updated:

Remember this incredibly impressive video that popped up all over your Facebook feed earlier this month? You know the one, where one guy does 29 celebrity impressions while singing his original song, "Perfect." The one that amassed nearly seven million views in under two weeks.

Well, this guy, with all his mighty talent and Billie Holiday imitation, is a fake. Yup, just like that flammable Worst Twerk Fail Ever video, the Epic Note-Passing on Delayed Flight sensation and the Human Barbie: FAKE. (Actually, scratch that last one.)

Rob Cantor, the man behind this well-orchestrated Internet hoax, posted yet another YouTube video Wednesday, July 9, explaining the workings behind the scenes.

"'29 Celebrity Impressions, 1 Original Song' was created with the help of eleven impressionists and one trumpet player," Cantor writes in his description. In the video, he admits he "cannot do a single celebrity impression." His gift, apparently, is that of lip syncing.

Consider all our dreams shattered.
