18 Strange Conspiracy Theories, According to Google's Search Bar
Everyone loves a good old fashioned conspiracy. The Moon landings were shot in a studio! JFK was assassinated by his own government! Nicolas Cage is a time-traveling vampire! That one, believe it or not, pops up as a suggestion in Google's search bar. (Probably because of this photo. Doesn't seem so crazy now, does it?) Below are a few more pop culture conspiracies, as suggested by the world's most popular search engine.
1. Adele is a potato
Correction: a very talented potato.
2. Justin Bieber is Miley Cyrus
Apparently, enough people think that there's a resemblance there. Other Justin Bieber searches include “Justin Bieber is dead”, “Justin Bieber is Joffrey”, “Justin Bieber is not real”, and the implausible “Justin Bieber is a human bean [sic]”.
3. Miley Cyrus is a chicken
Using Google's logic, we can infer that Justin Bieber is also a chicken and a party in the USA.
4. Taylor Swift is a robot
Weirdly, “Is Taylor Swift a famous person?” was also searched for. (Hint: the answer is yes.) Some also wondered if she’s dead. There's a theme here.
5. Kiefer Sutherland is a pirate
Many also think he's dead.
6. David Cameron is the Queen’s cousin
Not true, although he is a direct descendant of George IV, which does make them related in a tenuous way. Some have also taken to the internet in the belief that he is Iggle Piggle from In The Night Garden.
7. Eminem is scared of giraffes
Apparently, this is just one of Marshall Mathers's many fears—others are owls, and leaving the house. People also frequently ask, “is Eminem dead?”
8. Tom Cruise is a Sith Lord
Or a hippo. Or dead.
9. Bill Murray is a tree
Not an unfair accusation of wooden acting, but instead a reference to the movie Agent 13.
10. Mick Jagger is Kesha's dad
He's not, but he does, apparently, frequent people's nightmares.
11. Britney Spears is an alien with three heads
It's amazing what a little time in the hair and makeup chair can do, huh?
12. Tom Hanks is a lot of animals
According to the Tumblr of the same name, he is. Either that or he’s dead.
13. Nicolas Cage is a time-traveling vampire
He is definitely immortal.
14. Johnny Depp is a computer
Well, in a recent film he was. I guess this beats being dead.
15. Beyonce is my spirit animal
She can't be everyone's spirit animal, you guys. It just doesn't work like that.
16. Kim Jong Un is the sexiest man alive
This one's no conspiracy—he was actually named World’s Sexiest Man 2012. By The Onion. There are also plenty of suggestions that he might be dead, although to be fair there were news stories reporting that a few years ago.
17. Paul (McCartney) is dead
This is actually an old one. The belief is that in 1963, McCartney died and was replaced by a lookalike (and soundalike).
18. Bob Marley is alive
Bob Marley is the only person on this list who is actually dead, so naturally, people search for "Bob Marley is alive."
