A YouTuber has revealed how she managed to fake an entire holiday to Bali on social media by sharing photos she took in her local IKEA store.

一位 youtube用户揭秘她是如何在社交媒体上假装去巴厘岛度假的,方法是分享她在当地宜家店里拍的照片。


We are often bombarded with photos of social media stars living their best lives on fabulous trips to places such as these - but can we really believe everything we see on the internet?


One YouTuber has recently reminded us not to get too worked up over other people's Instagram, after she proved how easy it was to trick her followers into thinking she was on the vacation of a lifetime.

一位 youtube 用户最近提醒我们不要对别人的Instagram反应过于激烈,因为她证明了欺骗她的粉丝是多么容易,大家都以为她在度假。

Natalia Taylor shared images with her 314,000 followers, claiming to be having a wonderful time in Bali - but in reality, she was just down the road from her house at IKEA.


Yep, Natalia went into an IKEA store along with a photographer named Ally Amodeo and posed with the furniture displays, to make it look like she was in a fancy hotel.The vlogger got all dressed up and took photos in a bath tub, sitting at a dressing table in front of an ornate mirror and with a colourful telephone on a wall.

是的,娜塔莉亚和一个叫Ally Amodeo的摄影师走进一家宜家商店,摆好摆拍的姿势,让人觉得她是在一家豪华酒店里。这位视频博主盛装打扮,在浴缸里拍照,亦或是坐在华丽镜子前的梳妆台上,墙上挂着色彩缤纷的电话。


She edited the photos before uploading them, leaving in one or two giveaways such as IKEA price tags, that showed all wasn't quite as it seemed.


Her first fake Bali post was captioned: "The queen has arrived #Bali". Thousands liked the picture and commented to share their thoughts, with many falling for the prank. "She really out here living her best life," wrote one person. Another replied: "Our Bali Princess." "Bali won't know what hit 'em," added a third.

她发布的第一个虚假帖子的标题是: “本女王来到了巴厘岛。”成千上万的人给这张照片点赞,并发表评论分享他们的想法,很多人都上了这个恶作剧的当。“她真的在这里过着她最好的生活,”一个人写道。另一个回答说: “我们的巴厘岛公主。”“巴厘岛应该感到荣幸,”第三个补充说。  

Speaking in a video on YouTube, where she revealed exactly how she faked the trip, Natalia said she was shocked by how nice all of the comments on her pictures had been. She said: "All of the comments are nice, they're complimenting me on my dress and my make-up.

在YouTube上的一个视频中,娜塔莉亚透露了她是如何伪造旅行的,她说,她对所有关于她的照片的好评感到震惊。她说: “所有的评论都很善意,他们称赞我的裙子和妆容。

"No one even knew. That's right ladies and gentlemen, I got away with it. Yes, officially fooled all of you into thinking I actually travelled to a different country altogether, when really I just went down the road to my favourite Swedish furniture store.


"I don't know what I was expecting, to feel like a good person after all of this?" She added: "I think this video has a lesson, don't trust everything you see on the internet. Sometimes people want to lie about who they are as a person and it's not hard to do apparently."

“我不知道自己在期待什么,或许是在经历了这一切之后,感觉自己是个好人? ”她补充说: “我认为这个视频带给大家一个教训,不要过于相信你在互联网上看到的一切。 有时候人们想要隐瞒自己的真实身份,显然这并不难做到。”



巴厘岛是世界著名的旅游胜地,它的名气之大,以致于不少人 “只知道巴厘岛,却不知道它属于印度尼西亚”。
