Here's How We All Got Duped By A Viral Cheating Story

By

Ah, the Internet! What a wonderful place.

The Internet is a place where, every day, a star is born. Whether it's through a highly-circulated meme that people can't stop sharing, or through gut-wrenching photos of a $145,000 Range Rover spray painted with the word "cheater" on it, you just never know what's going to go viral.

A couple of weeks ago, photos of a white Range Rover that had the words "cheater" and "hope she was worth it" spray painted on it in bright red took the web by storm as people couldn't fathom why anyone would do such a thing.

Well, guess what? It was fake, guys.

In a recent video uploaded to YouTube by R-Tec Auto Design, we're introduced to the behind-the-scenes master plan with the intention of simply going viral. Hey, be mad all you want but you have to admit -- this is pretty genius.

The video's description reads,

We parked the Range Rover outside Harrod's and watched. What we didn't expect was the stunt to go viral worldwide.

Expect the unexpected.

Using fake spray paint and two new, upgraded Range Rovers, a team of schemers created two masterpieces people couldn't help but share all over social media.

As a matter of fact, a number of publications wrote about the stunt, which took place in London, without knowing it was fake. It's totally understandable. If you see a luxury car tagged in spray paint, you're going to assume it is very real.

It turns out fake spray paint was used and those cars were never damaged in the first place.

Ladies and gentlemen, that is how you cause a scene!

Check out the video above for a closer look at how it all went down.
