If you heard someone in your family filming a video about their fabulous lifestyle, complete with clean diets, expensive products and a rigorous workout routine to supposed followers, would you side-eye or completely bust out laughing? Because you know they’re lying.
In the newest prank that takes advantage of families spending way too much time together lately, people brag about their ah-maaaaaazing lifestyles in what appears to be a selfie video, but really the camera is turned on their unsuspecting families who know it’s all straight up bullsh*t.
18-year-old Nombulelo Patricia Sithole from South Africa tried the challenge, and it worked perfectly. While she prattled on about waking up at 4 a.m., eating sushi and doing push-ups, her family, overhearing the lies, silently lost it. Dad's reaction is the best!
The trend has spread quickly, both in the U.S. and South Africa. It seems that all around the world, people can see through their family members' fakery.
The look on this mom's face cannot be topped.
Watch this husband literally fall out of his seat when he hears his wife say she uses $20,000 worth of beauty products on her face.
This little girl knows her mother is spouting lies, as she diligently continues along with her homework.
Here, the husband has the most epic laughing fit. He even does a spit-take in the sink:
The trend started on TikTok earlier this month but has swept through other social media sites like Twitter and Instagram.
This woman made her husband cry with laughter when she said she wakes up at 6 a.m. This early bird does not catch the worm, apparently?
From the thousands of videos out there, it works every time. I guess no one lives with a real influencer in their house? The ironic thing is with many of these videos going viral and racking up views, it just may be the tipping point to make some of these people the real deal and gain lots of followers. So, don’t laugh -- the next time you hear your family member record a video that starts with, “Hey, guys!” it could be legit!
