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.

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.

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.

Rapper Future has had an incredible career spanning over several decades. In that time, he’s risen through the ranks to become a household name in the rap/hip-hop genres. Now, he’s revealed the latest addition to his garage in the form of this crazy one-off Chevrolet Blazer.

Future – real name Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn – is an American rap artist from Atlanta, Georgia. In his time as a musician, he has amassed a number of awards and released several critically-acclaimed albums and tracks.

With a car collection including Lamborghinis, Rolls-Royces, and Bentleys, he has now revealed his latest addition.

Standing out from his collection of ‘typical’ exotic cars, Future has now taken delivery of his custom-commissioned Chevrolet K5 Blazer truck from renowned tuners RingBrothers.

This fully-restored, one-off build looks absolutely incredible and will stand out among Future’s other ‘stock’ cars. Finished in British Racing Green, this is a color that was not available from factory, and was used only for his personal build.

The exterior has been left mostly stock other than the color change, but the front headlights have been upgraded to LED units. Not only have the headlights been changed, but also the wheels – the stock items being replaced by a set of 18″ gold HRE wheels.

Inside, the car has been completely re-trimmed in brown leather, with a number of embossed logos throughout. The factory analog dials have been refreshed, but a 10″ touchscreen has been fitted to the dash. This is coupled to an uprated JL audio system – a key upgrade for a musician such as Future.

Future unveiled the truck on his Instagram:

Underneath the hood is the biggest upgrade to the car – a complete engine and transmission swap. The stock motor has been ditched for a 6.2l LS3 V8, coupled to an uprated GM automatic transmission. With 430hp on tap, Future will have plenty of fun driving this custom truck around.

RingBrothers co-owner Mike Ring is justifiably proud of the result: “We’re humbled that people continue to come to us for special projects like this.”

“We realize that our customers could get a new Ferrari or Lamborghini but choose us instead. It’s an honor we don’t take lightly, so we put our heart into each project. We’re glad Future appreciates that.”
