The Internet Thinks Ted Cruz Is the Lead Singer of Stryper

If you thought the bizarre conspiracy theory about Ted Cruz possibly being the infamous Zodiac Killer was the weirdest thing to come out of the 2016 election -- think again.

A viral Facebook post has people talking about the GOP hopeful's incredible resemblance to the lead singer of the 1980s Christian metal band Stryper.

"I'm not saying Ted Cruz might be the lead singer of Stryper. I'm saying he's DEFINITELY the lead singer of Stryper," wrote metal fan Michael Boulerice.

There is an uncanny likeness between the two men that even Stryper lead singer, Michael Sweet, joked about.

The Daily Dot even went so far as to investigate further into the pair's schedules to see if there was in fact any overlap in their travel itineraries. They found that the two were in different countries on many different occasions.

As the odd rumor picked up steam on the Internet, the musician took to social media again to stress that while they look alike and are both passionate about their beliefs, they are in fact two different people.

Sweet will even be appearing on CNN Thursday evening to discuss the viral story and suggested a sing off would easily put the rumors to rest.

So far, representatives for Ted Cruz have not commented on the story.

Sadly this means we probably won't see the Republican contender rocking out in a yellow and black striped suit any time soon.

U.S. producers are pushing harder than ever for the right to sell U.S. crude oil overseas. It might seem counterintuitive: Oil prices are as low as they have been at any point since 2009 and the height of the Great Recession. Depending on the projection, prices could drop further still with slowing economies across the world. Oil producers are playing a longer game, betting that long-term demand remains strong and new markets offer lucrative rewards for U.S. producers. (AP Photo/Lauren Victoria Burke, File)
