Psych! Claudio Sanchez Trolled Everyone, Did Not Cut Off His Hair!


Troll level: EXPERT.

Claudio Sanchez sent the internet into an extreme shockwave of panic yesterday when he posted a couple of photos on Instagram that seemed to indicate he’d cut off his trademark locks in favor of a trim, clean-cut look.

Then in an incredible reveal last night at Coheed & Cambria’s show in St. Louis, Claudio came out on stage wearing a baseball cap, going with the gag, and then… well, watch for yourself below. Oh, what a hat, a ponytail and some well-placed camera angles can accomplish! It’s not clear whether Claudio intended to deceive or if the internet just ran with an assumption, but either way…

Well done, Claudio. Hats off to you (pun intended).
