An Icelandic newspaper confused Ed Sheeran with a dead 82-year-old man, accidentally killing off Sheeran in Thursday’s paper.

The paper mistakenly printed a picture if Sheeran next to the obituary of 82-year-old Svavar Gunnar Sigurðsson, according to U.K.’s Mirrorand tweeted by a fan.

Sigurðsson, a longtime mechanic, passed away mid December, and it’s unclear if his appearance resemblance 27-year-old Sheeran. Considering Ed looks like he’s a middle schooler with a beard, it’s doubtful. Maybe it’s the tattoo.
