https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=16AfXwI2WGQ These guys did it as a model with literal junk and weird clearance clothes. 100X funnier watching how ridiculous it is, though.

He faked it because he fucking thought it through and got courage to do it and has a way with people, not because he looks somehow stylish. And even if so, he MADE himself stylish, so, again, cheers to that

Just shows how brainless most of these "fashion" (if you can call it that) bloggers are. I think I could sell them a bag of dog shit and they wouldn't question it.

This video is literally a recreation of a fashion week how we will think it would have looked like. At the beginning of the video he stated "the story is real but we weren't there to film the first time" he is playing tricks on us constantly and made his story for us to believe once again. He did it so good that we can't tell the difference anymore just to challenge us and see if we believe what we wants us to believe. This is another one of his examples of how easy people can be manipulated. See how the two dark skinned dudes with sunglasses 3:52 looks like the Oobah.com DJ's from his Fake Lookalike swap project. Well I am confused for sure but he literally made us think he was in all those "fashion week" events but there is no guarantee he actually did but have to take his word for it. He is the true master of deception.
