As always happens when an older famous person trends on Twitter, the world had a collective panic for Keith Richards this morning.
Don’t worry, Keef is fine.
He was, in fact trending because of a viral tweet, which claimed a computer illustration of the Rolling Stones legend was a 3D model of Adam.
“Scientists at Princeton University have reconstructed this 3D model of how Adam, the first human being created by God, might have looked,” the post by circus performer Jim Rose read.
The image featured was actually an art project by Spanish senior character artist Natalia Barbosa, posted on her website to show her process of creating a realistic likeness of Keith Richards.
While we can’t say how many people were taken in by the claim – which, if you really think about it, doesn’t hold a lot of water – Twitter users were having fun with the idea of wild man Richards as the first human.
