A youthful Japanese female motorbike rider has fooled thousands on social media after she was exposed as a 50-year-old man with long luscious hair.
The Japanese rider, who goes under the username @azusagakuyuki on Twitter, has gained a following of nearly 18,000 with life updates and photos dressed in a motorcycle jacket or posing with Yamaha bikes.
But eagle-eyed fans suspected something wasn’t right when a mirror image in one of the photos showed a different face.
A Japanese entertainment TV show managed to hunt down the author of the Twitter feed, discovering a middle-aged man was behind the images after he pulled his bike helmet off to expose himself in the ultimate catfish moment.
The man named Zonggu said he used photo editing apps such as FaceApp to make himself look like a younger attractive woman because he thought no one wanted to see an old uncle.
The pretty girl image gained him a multitude of fans, with some even assuming the girl in the photos just edited her photos to make herself more attractive.
However, her fan base began noticing unusual things in the pictures, including a masculine-looking hairy arm and a wing mirror reflection showing a man’s facial features.
The man said he turned to the face changing app because he wanted to get popularity on social media, as well as increase the engagement of his posts.
His impressive editing skills led to thousands of likes and hundreds of retweets on his posts, and he told the TV show he enjoyed the feeling of becoming an online celebrity.
Ironically it was the unveiling of his identity that went viral, with thousands of impressed people saying he did a magnificent job turning himself into such an attractive girl, and one man quipped that his hair was so luscious and that it was deserving of a clickbait.
Numerous women joked that the guy looked prettier than they did, while others described the catfish as next level, and one person wrote that everyone believed it, and it was the best catfish ever.
Meanwhile, dozens said they will never trust anything they see on social media, with one quipping that their trust issues have been upgraded.
At the end of the day, this person simply fed the world what they enjoy most, lies and fabrications, but clearly, this man had great ambition, but I think he was wrong in thinking that no one would have followed a 50-year-old biker on social media.
And I think that if we’ve learnt anything in the past four years under the Trump fiasco, is that people want to be lied to and duped, and it appears that people enjoy not only being deceived, lied to, and being made fools of, they thrive on it, and these days, you don’t know who is who, or what is what.
He simply gave people what they wanted to see, and people might be able to deceive us with photo editing on some face converter app, but it does make you wonder what the real face of Donald Trump is now, or anyone for that matter, but at least this guys hair was real, and he outplayed the system, and everyone has his or her faults, there’s no perfection in this life.
