As social media, and a current sitting President, continue to give legs to outlandish conspiracy theories it was inevitable that eventually one would come along that would rock our world.


Italian conspiracy theorist have been musing over a schematic for the Boss MT-2 Metal Zone guitar pedal, which has been altered to say “COVID 5G Chip Diagram,” as solid proof that governments are using vaccines to track people.

Usually these types of things are too sad to be funny, but this one is hilarious. Especially as music lovers will easily notice the schematic has clearly labeled “bass,” “treble,” “volume” and “footswitch” segments on the circuit.

Mario Fusco, lead programer at enterprise software company Red Hat, first brought it to people’s attention after he posted a screenshot of the supposed “5G Chip Diagram” on twitter.

Here in Italy people started to share this figure claiming that this is the diagram of the 5G chip that has been inserted in the covid vaccine,” tweeted Fusco. “In reality it is the electric circuit of a guitar pedal and I believe that putting it in the covid vaccine has been an excellent idea.”

We agree Mario.
