‘Mind Control Chip’ From Popular Conspiracy Theory Is Actually From A Guitar Pedal

Have you heard the conspiracy theory about COVID-19 and a ‘5G chip’ being implanted in people’s brains? Well, it won’t control your brain – but it might help you shred a guitar solo.

Turns out a blueprint of a “COVID-19 5G CHIP” making the rounds on social media is from a guitar pedal – the BOSS MT-2 Metal Zone to be exact.

No one’s sure how the rumor got started, but some have traced it to a Romanian Facebook page last month – which then caught on in Italy as a serious rumor.

Do you have a conspiracy-theorist friend? Are there any conspiracy theories you actually believe?
