The Internet can be a crazy place and it got even crazier this past week for Michael Sweet & Stryper! A photo comparison of Michael Sweet (from back in the day) & presidential candidate Ted Cruz showed up on Facebook stating "I'm not saying Ted Cruz might be the lead singer of Stryper. I'm saying he's DEFINITELY the lead singer of Stryper." The photo quickly went viral and trended on Facebook with conspiracy theories flying around that Ted Cruz was actually the lead singer of Stryper!
It didn't take long before Michael was contacted by CNN, NBC, Fox News, Billboard and other numerous media outlets (e.g. NY Daily News, Mashable, AOL, AXS, MSN, Salon, Esquire, Perez Hilton, BuzzFeed, Drudge Retort) regarding this amusing news that was taking the Internet by storm! Despite the craziness of it all, it was very cool to turn on the TV and see Michael Sweet (and Stryper) be featured on CNN and NBC!
