Sure enough, the tumble looked epic enough to be worthy of some attention. But not only did the Caucasian gentleman in the image look nothing like the “Talk Dirty To Me” singer, but it had also been taken in 2011, at an entirely different event – Cannes Film Festival in 2011.

A number of media outlets were fooled by the viral image, leading My Derulo himself – a man whose name can only be uttered in song – to comment on his whereabouts.
