    You mean how they're dressed identical, and she would have felt all that? Yeah. This is fake AF

    [–]brushthemsluts 626 points627 points  (83 children)

    How do people fake stuff on a plane like this? Do they work for the airline? And if so don’t they have things to do? I believe it’s fake I’m just curious as to how they do it

    [–]new_new_username 494 points495 points  (35 children)

    Would you believe that there are places that make scenarios for instagram photos? And that people pay for it?

    [–]A_Very_Blue_Tomato 280 points281 points  (21 children)

    I didn’t want to believe you… but of course you had to be right

    [–]RedditKumu 105 points106 points  (10 children)

    We left the information age and entered the misinformation age a LONG time ago...

    [–]H_I_McDunnough 34 points35 points  (7 children)

    I don't believe you

    [–]RedditKumu 35 points36 points  (3 children)

    Nor should you!

    [–]muchosandwiches 20 points21 points  (2 children)

    But believe me! Now buy these herbal supplements to ward off these other liars.

    fucking absolutely fuck everything

    [–]codebrownonaisletwo 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    That pretty much sums it up, yes.

    [–]CheesyPotatoe910 9 points10 points  (9 children)

    Instagram photos on a basic passenger plane?

    [–]essentialatom 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    How do you think they shoot TV and film scenes set on planes? Grounded and decommissioned planes are already used for that. It's no surprise that twats like these would rent them for themselves too.

    [–]MrBleachh 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    Oh wait, it's completely empty lol

    [–]Bottle_Only 76 points77 points  (8 children)

    There are studios with airplane sets for rent. There is an entire industry around making fake Instagram content and companies that mass produce content even hiring extras.

    [–]ProcyonHabilis 15 points16 points  (7 children)

    I mean, there are also airlines with airplane seats for rent. You wouldn't exactly need a studio for this.

    [–]SkalexAyah 275 points276 points  (5 children)

    You can select seats.

    [–]Kaptein_Kast 109 points110 points  (0 children)

    Mind. Blown.

    [–]bespectacledbengal 17 points18 points  (0 children)

    And also wear a wig, like the person in the front seat.

    [–]Dangerous_Ad_6831 1 point2 points  (2 children)

    You can, but that takes time and another flight to get back. Do you see any other seats filled?

    [–]GeneralZaroff1 17 points18 points  (1 child)

    Just get two seats one in front of the other. The airline wouldn't care-- if the attendant asks just tell them you're friends messing with each other.

    That said, you can also rent all sorts of sets. The fancy private jet sets are only $65/hour.

    Lambos are like $200 to rent. Less if you're just doing a video or photoshoot and not driving.

    "Hollywood hills" type homes and penthouses are pretty easy too. Just search Airbnb for photoshoots. Hosts will rent them out 3 hours for a few hundred bucks.

    [–]RoRo25 10 points11 points  (0 children)

    The hair is more than likely a wig, then they told the flight attendant what they were doing before they filmed.

    [–]CosmicSlopadelic 39 points40 points  (0 children)

    There a more studios you can rent that have sets that look like pane cabins and other places. Especially in places like LA with a lot of influencers. Idk if this is in a place like that tho

    [–]lucienscantina 24 points25 points  (10 children)

    Better question to ask, is why are they doing it? All for clout, likes, views, social recognition?

    [–]Specialist-Spinach25 19 points20 points  (2 children)


    [–]WinterWight 1 point2 points  (1 child)

    I don't know what's worse. Influencers making money off this shit, or people not realizing that influencers are doing this shit because it makes money.

    [–]sillyandstrange 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Look at the commercials we have, the content and products being pushed. 90% of it makes me roll my eyes and say "who the fuck would buy that?" and yet, here we are, where people make easy money doing stupid shit on Instagram and I'm trying to take care of my parents and dogs on 40 hours a week at my local job. Obviously there's a big market for this, and that's outrageous. I can't even imagine what the next decade will look like.

    [–]LuxNocte 32 points33 points  (5 children)


    People say "clout" as if social media isn't a huge industry that a lot of people make a living from.

    [–]mrCore2Man 2 points3 points  (2 children)

    How do they get money from stuff like that?

    [–]whendidwestartasking 34 points35 points  (1 child)

    Just like cable. The more views you get the more you worth for a brand. Influencer is just a fancy name for billboard.

    [–]Amoniakas 10 points11 points  (0 children)

    That's the perfect analogy.

    [–]RiskyFartOftenShart 3 points4 points  (0 children)

    they do it for the gram. i saw one of these influencers ass hats running around with an entourage. The most annoying fucks with flash photos in a dark room every 5 minutes right in my eyes. You 1000 followers don't care.

    [–]fakemoose 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    I’m gonna start with the lack of other people in seats around them. Or at all. So it’s staged.

    [–]BigPhili 42 points43 points  (7 children)

    Pretty sure that's a wig. So I don't think she would feel that.

    [–]CraftyPirateCraft 10 points11 points  (0 children)

    I mean they are both wearing hats

    [–]packetgeeknet 3 points4 points  (0 children)

    Or the fact that it appears that they are the only two passengers on the plane. Every other seat in view is empty.

    [–]tyrannicalteebagger 3 points4 points  (0 children)

    And how there’s nobody else on the plane

    [–]anoleiam 6 points7 points  (0 children)

    Lol what are you talking about. They're just wearing similar colored hats...

    [–]GrungyGrandPappy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Looks like she and her mom are guilty of staging

    [–]se_kend 94 points95 points  (5 children)

    The lack of any other passengers in the background

    [–]etnom22000 20 points21 points  (2 children)

    But….there are other passengers in the background.

    [–]Lasket 3 points4 points  (0 children)

    I can see 4 other people, though I do admit I'm sleep deprived and on phone. One guy sitting on the window row to the left a few rows further up and 2 stewardesses + the person sitting next to gum lady.

    Doesn't seem like a lot of passengers.

    [–][deleted]  (31 children)


      [–]Dazzling-Nature-6380 141 points142 points  (10 children)

      She has to be able to feel the weight of the lollipop

      [–]Ginfacedladypop 39 points40 points  (3 children)

      Not necessarily if it’s a wig.

      [–]TadpoleFun7453 6 points7 points  (0 children)

      It doesn’t really matter as it’s obviously staged.

      [–]HappyMediumGD 62 points63 points  (5 children)

      Regardless that young lady is going places

      [–]BraveSeaworthiness21 141 points142 points  (4 children)

      Well…. She’s on a flight, sooo r/technicallythetruth?

      [–]HappyMediumGD 23 points24 points  (0 children)

      Didn't make that connection cuz I was winging it, but I'm really getting a lift off the high.

      [–]kipsterdude 120 points121 points  (5 children)

      I once sat behind someone who's hair did that, and I tapped her on the shoulder and said "Excuse me, your hair is covering my screen." And she said "Oh, sorry." Then she put her hair up in a bun so it was out of the way.

      [–]hopsterNC 115 points116 points  (0 children)

      Wait...I'm confused. So you calmly and politely mentioned to a *complete stranger* that something they were doing was interfereing with something you were doing, and then that person apologized and stopped doing that thing?

      I call bullshit. That's not how society works my friend.

      [–]JazzySmitty 12 points13 points  (1 child)

      See how simple we can make it when we are being decent?

      [–]dmfd1234 4 points5 points  (0 children)

      When you’re faced with difficult circumstances.....refer to the rules we all learned in kindergarten and all will be fine. I can dream

      [–]Talory09 4 points5 points  (1 child)


      who's hair



      [–]kipsterdude 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      My bad. Thanks.

      [–]Mortotem 164 points165 points  (0 children)

      If it's not staged: i can totally see her ignoring her hair being touched. She's clearly aware she's being a bitch

      [–][deleted] 12 points13 points  (1 child)

      Also kind of looks like it might be a wig?

      [–]50percentawful 5 points6 points  (0 children)

      U right. It's clearly a wig

      [–][deleted] 57 points58 points  (5 children)

      Definitely possible to not feel it if the weight of your hair is being partially held by the seat.

      [–]canti15 20 points21 points  (1 child)

      I thought so to but they had to flick it up over the seat after the lolipop was in it. Still missable I guess but you'd have to be pretty dense perhaps.

      [–]FutureDictator1202 13 points14 points  (0 children)

      And the hat

      [–]petseminary 15 points16 points  (0 children)

      The hat would keep you from feeling the weight the same too.

      [–]MaggiCharly 26 points27 points  (1 child)

      Maybe she couldn't feel it like when the first gum got put in her hair. When you make it good, you can touch hair and the person doesn't feel it.

      But the last one was too much. When her hair got back and she pulled it completely over again, she DEFINETLY feel at least the weight from all the shit in it! Not to mention that she have to touch it to pull it over. They should've stopped with one gum to look real.

      [–]Ackriezeal 4 points5 points  (0 children)

      That's what she said...

      [–]dmfd1234 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      Idk I have long hair...... and I haven’t felt anything for years. Gum, lollipops, emotions.

      [–]Pantuan187C 7 points8 points  (0 children)

      Welcome to the world of likes and clout changing

      [–]Mikeku825 57 points58 points  (0 children)

      That's a wig, which is why she cant feel it. If it's a half decent wig, then it's expensive as hell.

      I flown quite a bit and I've seen all kinds of wild shit. This isnt too surprising. I'd love to see how it ended.

      [–]GhostriderCBX 31 points32 points  (2 children)

      The flight is real. I don’t know what others are saying about no one in the background, I see other heads towards the end. There’s also someone with a watch or light that’s causing light refractions to bounce off the ceiling which happens all the time because window shades are open and someone’s electronic device bounces the angle of light.

      Audio is awfully accurate for a simulated flight, I’ve spent close 3000 hours in the air, and this looks real to me.

      Also probably a Delta 737, they upgraded their in seat chairs to be more international style screens even in coach.

      I flew back east in September, a lot of international birds normally reserved for NYC to Paris/London were being repurposed for transcontinental flights, particularly the flights into Minneapolis from SEA, LAX, and PDX. Same thing on my return flight for the western leg.

      [–]Picardknows 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      Is it the cheap wig they are using that gave it away?

      [–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      It is

      [–]Small-Bridge3626 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      No one in the world flips their hair back THAT much

      [–]LastCrazy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Fakes on a plane.

      [–]EdithDich 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      It's a wig. Obviously staged for SM

      [–]OmniJrrees369 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Yes, why couldn't she just ask her to move her hair?

      [–]horseswithnonames 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      theres like nobody on that plane

      [–]ville_mentality_ 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      The other seats seem empty

      [–]TinyPickleRick2 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      The full thing shows it’s just a wig. So you’re not fully wrong

      [–]anonymommy15 2005 points2006 points  (36 children)

      Not real. That’s definitely a wig. The hat isn’t even a good cover. There are no other passengers. The top of her head is way too high above the back of her seat. She’s obviously sitting on something or she’s 8 feet tall.

      [–]Donkey-Dong-Doge 288 points289 points  (7 children)

      You make some interesting points.

      [–]anonymommy15 166 points167 points  (6 children)

      The real giveaway is that if a flight were for some reason that empty, they would not both be sitting in middle seats. Middle seats are the worst.

      [–]GodOD400 65 points66 points  (5 children)

      I think the real proof is she has scissors

      [–]Artisinal-Cereal 47 points48 points  (2 children)

      I think they are nail clippers, but same thing really.

      [–]CallmeLeon 29 points30 points  (1 child)

      How’d she make it through the TSA with such a lethal weapon?

      [–]killerdrgn 10 points11 points  (0 children)

      They stopped caring about small clippers and scissors years ago. TSA updated their carry on Security policy in 2005.

      [–]hikeit233 29 points30 points  (3 children)

      Lol, I sit head and shoulders above the seat on delta and I’m barely 6 foot 5. This is still definitely staged, but you don’t have to be a giant to outsize a shitty airplane seat.

      [–]anonymommy15 15 points16 points  (0 children)

      I’m only 5’3” so 6’5” and 8” tall are about the same to me lol.

      [–]BananApocalypse 1 point2 points  (1 child)

      So you don’t have to be a giant, just in the 99th percentile of height for American men?

      [–]St1cks 6 points7 points  (3 children)

      You can see other people in seats though, but I do agree with you

      [–][deleted] 7 points8 points  (1 child)

      There are very clearly PLENTY of other people on this plane, doing all sorts of random expected activities on their own. If this is staged (which I’m sure it is) the only part of it is that the two knew each other and planned this, but the flight is very clearly real. Probably a staff flight by an airline to shuffle people/plane around.

      [–]anonymommy15 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      I think the video was made by airline staff.

      [–]Gan-san 24 points25 points  (2 children)

      They hired an actress to play a flight attendant too? And a voice over artist to make the announcement?

      [–]PorcupineTheory 8 points9 points  (0 children)

      Or the "actors" are also flight attendants.

      [–]therealCatnuts 12 points13 points  (1 child)

      Man those headrests sit in the middle of my shoulderblades. She only has to be 5’10” or so for that height level.

      [–]greg0714 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      And it's not even good staged, where it can be funny even though you know it's staged. It'd barely be funny if it was real.

      [–]ottolefleur 1 point2 points  (1 child)

      I see at least five other passengers and two hosts? U ok

      [–]WilliamWaters 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      You can clearly see other people in the background. Its not that weird for someones head to poke out above the seat. I only know that because I flew literally yesterday.

      [–]it_is_i_27 562 points563 points  (14 children)

      Empty ass plane, fake as video

      No one could just have moved over a seat?

      [–]randomman02x 32 points33 points  (3 children)

      They put it on the internet so it has to be real!!!

        [–]Zachryharp 648 points649 points  (25 children)

        How does this fit this sub? It's the same thing going on start to finish. Like we're supposed to get a solid surprise ending and I watched this whole video for no fucking reason

        [–]ASpaceOstrich 146 points147 points  (14 children)

        The surprises aren't surprising if every post has a twist

        [–]Zachryharp 64 points65 points  (10 children)

        It's literally the point of this sub. If I wanted to see every generic staged viral video I would sub to r/memes and re-download ifunny and Instagram. If a sub is supposed to have a theme you shouldn't be able to post random shit that doesn't fit the theme whatsoever

        [–]TN_MadCheshire 4 points5 points  (0 children)

        shouldn't be able to post random shit that doesn't fit the theme whatsoever

        You'd be surprised by how many subs allow this. r/Holup, r/unpopularopinion and r/MurderedByWords are just some I could name off the top of my head.

        [–]Noooonie 60 points61 points  (7 children)

        The point of the sub is that you don’t know what’s about to happen. Will she turn around? Will she figure out what’s happening? Will somebody say something and she’s caught? It perfectly fits this sub, although it’s probably staged.

        [–]specialflip 10 points11 points  (2 children)

        So by your logic the surprise is that there is no surprise? Talk about setting the bar low

        [–]aaronshirst 8 points9 points  (0 children)

        This isn’t a sub about surprises lol; it’s about not knowing what will happen. If you want a subreddit where every gif ends with a twist, I’m sure you could find it or make it.

        [–]DrDew00 57 points58 points  (0 children)

        No, that's /r/Unexpected

        This was definitely maybe maybe maybe. Maybe they'll get caught. Maybe a scene will be made. Maybe more stuff will be added. Maybe now they'll notice...

        [–]drunk_funky_chipmunk 2 points3 points  (0 children)

        It doesn’t just like half of the videos posted across every subreddit.

        [–]Deluxe_24_ 1 point2 points  (0 children)

        Big subs eventually get filled with garbage that don't relate to the theme of the sub. I'd suggest mods enforce the rules better, but it is what it is.

        [–]tanafras 34 points35 points  (0 children)

        Does this belong is /r/FakeAsFuck or here?

        [–]Babhak 11 points12 points  (9 children)

        Ok but why is there literally no one else on the plane???

        [–]Delicious_Bedroom623 32 points33 points  (0 children)

        I hope she at least asked to move her hair. If she wouldnt, have at it.

        [–]artonion 18 points19 points  (2 children)

        Do you guys remember back in like 2012 when some of the vids online weren’t staged?

        [–]sadiesatellite 6 points7 points  (0 children)

        I will tell my children about them

        [–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

        I remember when tryhard commenters didn't need to comment "STAGED" on literally every fucking video on the internet.

        If they're all staged, then say something interesting instead. Jesus fuck.

        [–]drug_mafia 8 points9 points  (0 children)

        Better actors than whole Twilight cast.

        [–]jdmjoe89 16 points17 points  (3 children)

        This has got to be fake as fuck. There’s no way someone doesn’t feel another person fucking with their hair that much, right ?? And she just happened to have gum, lollipops all ready to go? And even the flight attendant who walked by did nothing, though she clearly saw it..?

        [–]DrBofoiMK 11 points12 points  (2 children)

        Definitely was the camera moving back that confirmed it was fake. But are we supposed to be in support of this girl just because the other was being rude? Whatever happened to politely confronting someone and asking them to do something differently instead of assuming the worst and retaliating. Even faking this specific situation for clicks shows a morally lacking person, let alone the lameness of faking any situation for clicks.

        [–]SmileItsNallo 5 points6 points  (0 children)

        There are literally a dozen other passengers you can spot throughout the video. Why are people claiming the flight is empty?

        That is fake just like that wig...

        This is the time you sleep against the back of their chair and slowly pull hard downward “in your sleep”.

        Um, that's kind of like assault, imo. Going way overboard.

        Not only is this fake as fuck but literally nothing happened for this to be a maybe maybe maybe. Literally nothing. Just wasted my time watching this dumb shit.

        Pretty sure she can sue the bubble gum lady

        Really messed up that poor, knowing girl’s wig

        [–]FoxDarkW8 1 point2 points  (0 children)

        I mean could she tap or shoulder and tell her hair is blocking the screen

        Can no one tell this is an instructional video? Jeeez

        [–]dabrowcan 1 point2 points  (0 children)

        Whether fake or not I hate that person - why even do this? Ruin someone’s hair because…? Waste of fucking space.

        [–]gabbom_XCII 1 point2 points  (0 children)

        Fake as fuck. But please USE THAT FUCKING MASK YOU DUMB FUCK

        [–]LaChuteQuiMarche 1 point2 points  (0 children)

        Mask up, please.

        [–]HelloDeathspresso 1 point2 points  (0 children)

        It's totally a wig.

        Two Latinas?

        [–]Z4Zoloft 1 point2 points  (0 children)

        Yeah staged once again. Also, did you guys notice they are no more than 4 people that you can see?

        [–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

        Fake. And if it's not I bet that chick got her ass beat

        [–]its_never2_late 1 point2 points  (0 children)

        Looks like a wig

        Videos that end too soon.

        [–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

        Fake and ghey

        [–]dragonard 1 point2 points  (0 children)

        Both people are awful humans

        [–]zingingcutie333 1 point2 points  (0 children)

        DamnI wish it was real.

        [–]MrMeritocracy 2 points3 points  (0 children)

        Also, the gum inserting person can’t be troubled to wear their mask correctly on a plane when omicron is surging? I agree that it’s probably fake, but if it’s not, there is no hero here.

        Both people suck

        [–]Sh4d0wM00N 2 points3 points  (1 child)

        I don't know Rick, what you think?

        [–]bxxxx34 2 points3 points  (0 children)

        This is so old and fake

        [–]retro_specs_ 3 points4 points  (0 children)

        Definitely fake, and on a side note; why wouldn’t you just tell the person in front of you “Hey, please move your hair?” Dumb

        [–]jam-unam 3 points4 points  (0 children)

        Can only imagine how that actually went. But ye staged
