A plethora of TikTok & Instagram influencers have been exposed for renting the set of a fake private jet in a bid to show off a lavish and luxury lifestyle on social media.

Instagram influencers have taken the world by storm. With the biggest celebrities from around the globe earmarked to be making over $1 million per post.

But, not all of these popular influencers are as rich or live as luxurious lives as it might seem, as it has emerged that some have been renting the set of a private jet to mimic the lifestyle of the richest on the planet.

Lights, camera, action… Not quite the jet-set lifestyle shown on social media.

Instagram & TikTok influencers exposed

On September 25, a list of social media influencers was revealed, all of them using the exact same set to try and portray the luxury lifestyle most can only dream of.

Twitter user ‘maisonmeIissa’ exposed the fake set, showing a side-by-side comparison of the set versus the surrounding studio — with the set being located inside what appears to be a typical studio.

“It’s crazy that anything you’re looking at could be fake. The setting, the clothes, the body… idk it just kind of shakes my reality a bit,” Melissa said in her status.

Where to rent fake Instagram private jet set

The set, called ‘Olympia 4’ is located in Boyle Heights, Los Angeles. Available for $64 per hour, the fake set comes complete with artificial lighting, to give the full effect of being sky high… When, in reality, that couldn’t be further from the truth.

Per the description, the studio offers more than just a fake jet: “This fabulous 700 square-foot studio with both private jet setup and an area for e-commerce/simple portraits shoots.”

With the post doing the rounds and going viral on social media, even the likes of Lil Nas joined in on the action, with an obvious photoshop of him in the set captioned “thankful for it all.”

Of course, given the accessibility of the set in Los Angeles, it’s likely that this isn’t the only one of its kind.

So with that said, it just goes to show that anything that is seen on social media should be just taken with a grain of salt.

The joys of spooky season might be limited by a global health crisis, but it doesn’t stop TikTok from creating some incredible and utterly terrifying looks this Halloween.

From disturbingly realistic horror movie icons to genuinely bone-chilling transitions, we’re in awe of the efforts it took to create these amazing costumes. Here are the best looks from this year so far.

Don’t get bitten!

This extremely dedicated father had such a realistic “Walking Dead” style zombie costume that his kids were clearly terrified. The costume came with its own sound effects, and TikTok is invested. The reveal of this amazing costume has had 9 million views.

Jump-scare with a twist

Abby Roberts is well known on TikTok for impeccable makeup skills, and her Halloween looks have been off the charts – especially with her collaborations with Yungblud and Liam Payne. Not only is this zombie Nun look the stuff of nightmares, the transition is pretty slick, too.

Seen any red balloons?

This amazingly realistic version of Pennywise from Stephen King’s ‘IT’ is truly capturing people’s attention, garnering 10 million views on this video already. The teeth in this look alone are on another level.

Spooky skeletons

This person has an amazing full costume of Jack Skellington from Tim Burton’s ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas,’ and for some reason, this video of him dancing is kind of addictive to watch – so much so that it has had 22.7 million views.

Criminal pups

Pets are getting involved, too, and these three cute pups are breaking out of doggy jail in the spirit of Halloween, complete with stripy uniforms that say “I steal kisses” and a number plate that says “cr1me.”
