YouTuber fakes vacation to Bali with Ikea photoshoot
Our species is doomed.
IKEA — Even influencers need a vacation. It's tough for influencers out there busting their butts to influence as many people as possible with their influencing skills.
Which is why YouTube personality Natalia Taylor went on a vacation to Bali and posted the snaps on her Instagram. Or did she?
Taylor posted a few pictures on her IG saying that she was in Bali on February 7.
But instead of actually going to Bali, she just hopped over to her local Ikea and had herself a photoshoot.
According to Fox News, the first set of photos was captioned, "The queen has arrived." Her followers then started leaving the usual IG comments. We'll spare you from those.
Then a few days later, Taylor posted a video on YouTube telling everyone how she faked her Bali vacay in a nearly 14 minute-long video.
In the video Taylor explains, "It's been said life on the internet isn't always what it seems, especially in today's day and age when it's so easy to pretend to be anyone you want to be."
"So many influencers nowadays have actually been caught in the act of pretending to be at a particular destination when they really weren't and it's either Photoshop or it's not even them."
"The point of this video is to see if you can fake it 'til you make it."
She said it was tough lying to her followers, but that she was happy that she could lift the veil on social media and then warns people not to believe everything they see on the internet.
Wow—our species really is doomed.
