19-Year-Old Vlogger Easily Fools the Internet by Pretending He Is Rich on Instagram

It is so easy to fool someone or get fooled in social media. That virtual life we create to hide our reality, imperfections, lifestyle, it’s a kind of marketing we create to promote ourselves in society.

The more active you are and share about your life, the more people follow you and give you the attention you think you need. Seeing what the world has come to, people try to get adjusted and fight their way to the top of what is currently trending.

One fine example of that is a 19-year-old vlogger, Byron Denton who faked being rich on social media for a week.

His project was all an experiment to see how easy it would be to fake a rich life in social media, and all just for the price of an editing app. It is a fact that the world is becoming more materialistic every day and more, everyone is uploading pictures of their vacation, what their eating, drinking, wearing.

Shockingly, it was super easy to achieve his goal and play with people’s minds. His pictures showed him wearing designer clothes, shopping at Louis Vuitton, sitting on a private jet, and all other activities you’d expect to see on a celebrity or influencer’s Instagram.

By conducting this experiment he could see how much more followers he was gaining, and the fact that he would get more likes in the pictures where he’d be seen wearing designer clothes, than ordinary stuff.

His inspiration came from fellow YouTuber George Mason, who had faked going on a vacation for a week. He wanted to take another approach and see if people would fall for that, proving once again that social media is for real an intoxicating drug.

“I’d always wondered if the reason people are so obsessed with celebrities was due to the fact they can afford to live a life not everyone can,” said Denton. And as it turns out, that is one big reason that pushes people to follow those high profile celebrities, to see what it means to be rich.

Denton was getting a lot of messages from followers, even from his family members asking him if he’d won the lottery to suddenly be able to afford this kind of lifestyle. The teenager surely seemed to be having a great time, having everything most people today want.

It might seem impossible to fake something so good, but it is possible and very easy in fact. All you need is to master some photoshopping skills and you’re all set.  Brandon used a combination of three apps to achieve the wanted results. FaceTune, PicsArt, and Adobe Photoshop Lightroom for the finishing touches. Denton explained he would superimpose two images together using FaceTune and PicsArt.

The average time for each fake shoot was around 45 minutes from shooting to editing, and to make it easier for us he explained his process step by step.

Firstly, strike a pose in front of Louie Vuitton store.

Secondly, everyone loves a good boomerang.

And thirdly, you’re already a model, likes and comments come flooding now.

After a week of being in this celebrity spotlight, living the life of his dreams, he decided to expose himself on his YouTube channel, letting people see the real image behind all the edits he did, and the reason why he did it.

20 Pictures of German Shepherds That Show You How Adorable and Loving They Are

I believe you all have heard of German Shepherds. They are the most steadfastly loyal companions, and consistently rank at the top of the most popular dog breeds, and it’s easy to see why. German shepherd dogs (GSD) are noble, diligent, loyal, and highly intelligent dogs. They are large in size and have very streamlined, athletic builds that make them both strong and agile.

Though they are excellent herding dogs, German shepherds are very well suited to work as service animals, such as guide dogs for the blind. They are excellent performing as working dogs, especially in police and military operations. They also make highly effective guard dogs. Of course, the German shepherd dog also makes a wonderful companion in the right home.

One of the most recognizable breeds today, German shepherds are celebrated for their impressive balance of power and grace. They surely mark a presence in your heart as well. To all of those who own a German shepherd, they will strongly agree to that fact.

Below we’ve made a list of their adorable pictures, and they will make you fall in love with this breed once more.
