There's a very real human phenomenon where we will sometimes believe things to be true because we really want it, despite our better judgment. That's the foundation for MTV's Catfish, but in a new episode one man takes it to an extreme.

In a sneak peek from the upcoming episode, a man named Spencer believes that he has been carrying on a relationship with a pop star for a significant amount of time, despite having never met or Skyped the woman (they spoke on the phone once, he says). Though MTV is playing the tease and bleeps out Spencer when he says her last name, judging by the reaction and the kitty cat emoji, it's pretty clear that the woman he believes he's remotely dating is Katy Perry

"I've been talking to this woman for the past six years," Spencer begins. "I'm in love with her. She's awesome."

He even says he has bought her an engagement ring using his grandmother's emerald. Understandably, his brother is shocked. If it's true, Orlando Bloom would probably be pretty surprised to hear the news as well. 

The new Catfish episode airs on Wednesday at 10 p.m. Watch the teaser here:
