People love clickbait, and this particular headline sure did create a stir. Who wouldn’t want to take revenge on an unfair boss by smashing up their fancy car? We have all had that one boss (or more) who has made our life a living hell and sparked some wild revenge fantasies.
Most of the time, the fantasies don’t seep into the real world, but one person on the internet wanted to pretend that they did. At least this one. Well, whoever wants to take their own revenge may have to rely on their imagination because this video of a tractor smashing this slick-looking Benz is from a marketing campaign for an insurance company.
The Great Outdoors
This woman put on her hiking gear and boldly set out for a hike in the great outdoors; she even has a triumphant-looking pose to prove it. You know, on social media, where everyone can see and comment. Everyone including her very own sibling who can very easily reveal her as the fraudulent hiker that she is.
Yep, that's right, the other side of this image tells another story, and her sibling was there to tell it. As impressive as this family's backyard looks, it's not exactly a forest. You can't take a group of Boy Scouts in there for a field trip.
The Art Fraud
This promising young artist got accepted into the prestigious Disney College Program and even posted an adorable Disney-inspired drawing of her receiving the news. Or, at least, that is what she would have you thinking. It is just so incredibly easy to take something off the internet and repost it with no credits whatsoever, the temptation was too strong.
If only we had the Disney-inspired drawings of her being busted. Luckily we have screenshots for that, which are just as good. Hopefully, the college program caught wind of this one and let the real artist in, helping justice be served after all.
The Fuel Protest
Using powerful imagery to create change never hurts. But whoever made this poster in an attempt to unite people in the fight against corrupt systems should have perhaps been a little bit more careful in their selection. Perhaps look for an image of a German traffic jam and try to pass it as genuine.
In reality, the mass fuel protest in Germany never happened, and this image is actually just from a traffic jam in China. It doesn't take a genius to zoom in on the picture and see that all the people there look one hundred percent Asian and definitely not European. Oh well, It's the thought that counts.
Quality Control on Point
Leave it to the Redditors to cause an internet stir. When it came to this post of a faulty airplane, things could have very quickly spun out of control. Who would want to step into a plane with a broken window? Not us, that's for sure. Air travel is hard enough with the limited legroom, the dry air, and the unsavory people who might be sitting next to you.
We don't need the added fear of a taped-together airplane piled on top of that. Thankfully quality control caught 'wind' of it immediately and set the record straight. Airline workers successfully traced the aircraft in question and proved that it was, in fact, in storage. No one got on that plane!
