YouTuber tricks Instagram followers by hiding Kylie Jenner in her photos

YouTube comedy vlogger Kiera Bridget completely fooled fans by Photoshopping celebrities like Justin Bieber and Kylie Jenner into the background of her Instagram photos – and nobody noticed.

It’s no shock to anyone that influencers and online personalities often use tools like Photoshop and FaceTune to edit imperfections out of their photographs or to add a filter, but adding another person in entirely is almost unheard of.

British personality Kiera Bridget did just this though, and documented her process in a February 1 YouTube video, revealing exactly how she’d pulled the wool over her Instagram followers’ eyes.

YouTuber fools Instagram fans

In the video titled “I Hid Celebrities In My Instagram Photos & No One Noticed,” one of the pictures the 19-year-old edited was of her posing outside of an Alaïa store in London, UK, and she chose American media personality Kylie Jenner to be her photo-manipulating victim.

“I think I’m gonna put her in the background, like kind of behind me,” she said, as she sized up a random picture of the reality TV star out shopping, before blurring the picture and making it fit better into the shot.

Kiera then included a shadow around her feet for added “realness” and edited a lightning storm into the sky as a homage to Jenner’s daughter, Stormi Webster. After she was done, she uploaded it onto FaceTune to blur it even more and then uploaded it to Instagram.

The Brit also edited a photograph of herself where she posed in front of a water fountain. While the end result looks pretty normal, a sharp eye would notice that she’d actually included Bella Swan and Edward Cullen from the Twilight movies into the background.

Comments on her social media said hardly anything about the pair, and instead mostly just praised the YouTuber for her outfit and her shoes, failing to notice the vampires hidden in front of some trees.

Justin Bieber was used in another shot, and was placed to look like he was sat behind the YouTuber in a Starbucks while she clutched an iced drink – though the image has since been deleted from her social media account.

IRL Twitch streamer Jinny was left shocked after two men tried to sell her drugs while she toured the city of Hamburg in Germany.

Jinny has grown quite a following thanks in part to her IRL traveling antics where the Korean streamer routinely has odd adventures. Her trips have resulted in her befriending waitresses at a Texas Hooters, being attacked by wild deer in Denmark, and even setting her backyard on fire.

Now, in her most recent trip in Germany, the streamer found herself in quite an awkward position as she was offered drugs during an October 7 broadcast.

While talking to viewers, a random man suddenly began talking to her in broken English.

“You’re lucky to be in Deutschland. My ganja is the best,” he said. “You get three for five.”

It’s unclear exactly what units of measurement the man was selling three of for five Euros, but ganja translates to marijuana or weed. The incident really shocked the IRL streamer who had no idea what he was talking about.

“I don’t speak German,” she stated as he and another man conversed in the language.

Jinny’s chat warned her the man was selling drugs.

“Do you need ganja?” the man asked in English.

“What is ganja?” Jinny wondered. “Iguana?”

Eventually, Jinny looked at her chat and saw that her viewers were spamming translations and explaining how he was trying to sell her drugs – something she wanted no part of.

“I don’t need ganja. It’s okay,” she laughed and went on her way. “That was very random. Do I look like I smoke weed? Uh, maybe.”

Amusingly, the streamer went on to explain that she was very confused and seriously thought the man was trying to sell her an iguana.

“I thought he said ‘do you want to buy an iguana,’” she chuckled. “Why would I want to buy an iguana all of a sudden?”

Luckily, Jinny wasn’t forced into buying any drugs or reptiles during her encounter, but it just goes to show that even when a camera is rolling, weird stuff happens on a regular basis.
