Icelandic Newspaper Confuses Ed Sheeran With Dead 82-Year-Old Man

The Icelandic newspaper Morgunblaðið published an obituary this month for 82-year-old Svavar Gunnari Sigurðsso featuring a photo of 27-year-old British pop singer Ed Sheeran.

Sigurðsso, a longtime mechanic, passed away on December 19, the newspaper reported. It’s unclear whether his appearance resembled the “Shape of You” singer. Considering Sheeran looks like a middle schooler growing his first beard, it’s unlikely.

We have reached out to Morgunblaðið for comment and will update if we hear back.
