NEW YORK (PIX11) – Mayor de Blasio is either so fired up for the US team’s World Cup showdown with Ghana that his hair turned blond, or there was some odd lighting in his latest Twitter photo.

The photo sparked social media rumors of a possible mayoral dye job as de Blasio’s usual mix of brown and gray appeared more strawberry blonde in a tweet backing the soccer team.

The Office of the Mayor shut down the conspiracy theories Monday afternoon, however, telling PIX11 that de Blasio did not change his hair color and that the light was indeed to blame.

Apparently it wasn’t part of the bet that will have the mayor singing “I Love L.A.” on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” after the Rangers’ Stanley Cup loss to the Kings.
