YOUNG FEMALE MOTORCYCLE INFLUENCER UNMASKED AS A 50-YEAR-OLD MAN
WHO IS WHO?
Modern-day editing software and realistic motion capture enable people around the world to take on new online identities.
IS IT REALLY THEM?
Essentially, content creators can use machine learning to put another person’s face over their own.
It’s certainly a tantalizing prospect for many people and one that can lead to some rather bizarre stories.
This is exactly what happened when a popular female motorcycle influencer was found to be a 50-year-old Japanese man.
THERE WAS NO PROOF.
Many of @azusagakuyuki’s fans suspected that the influencer had been using editing software, but they had never been able to confirm it.
However, it was only until a Japanese media company did some digging that the true identity of azusagakuyuki was unveiled.
The video shows the moment the female motorbike enthusiast was unveiled to be none other than a 50-year-old man.
As of now, the account has over 20K followers and it seems the recent unveiling has only made the influencer even more popular.
