I mean, even if the interview is fake, being fake, it still makes more sense than "Obito being Tobi", heck, it was even better when they said Madara was Tobi.
Now, I supposed that because Yamato looked like Hiruko, he was Hiruko.
And because Tobi said he was Madara, he was Madara.
And, if Naruto, a Genin, Mastered and created his own Transformation Technique, a full grown man, leader of Akatsuki and insanely genius person couldn't make a better way of looking like someone else.
Also back in Chapter 510, when Tobi gets his mask broken by Konan, his left eye had a black sclera, something that revived people have.
I could proceed, but have no time.
Mr. ACTION******, sir, I urge you to reconsider making your mind, a little more, flexible. This series have proved that anything can happen, and he always tell us how and why. Tobi can be Obito, but he has to explain more and risk getting less viewers that way.
