The Truth of Justin Eating Burroti Starting from the Middle
As it turned out the photo that created the worldwide debate about Justin’s burrito eating habit was all fake and staged. It wasn’t even Justin in that picture. This photo was a prank by a bunch of YouTubers who goes by the name ‘Yes Theory.’ Yes, the same YouTubers behind Will Smith’s crazy heli bungee. Sunday the YouTube channel dropped a video titled “We Fooled the Internet w/ Fake Justin Bieber Burrito Photo.” In this video, the creators show the real mind and image behind the viral Justin Beiner eating Burrito sideways image. They admitted that whole image and the act was staged and fake. It is not even Justin Beiber in that picture. The guy in that photo is a look-alike on Justin with some basic makeup to give a fake Justin Beiber look.
The guy in the picture is Brad Sousa, Justin Beiber look-alike and also a fellow Canadian. The Yes Theory then flew him out from Canada to the USA to make him look exactly like Justin and shoot a picture for the sole purpose of make the fake photo viral And it worked. Virtually every major media online or offline picked that story and aired. There was even a panel discussion on a news channel about the eating habit and how burrito should be eating.
Thomas, a member of Yes Theory, can be seen saying “To get this thing to go viral, we have to have people in the news think it’s real because those are the people who are gonna spread it,” in the video. And that is exactly they did. You can watch the whole video on Yes Theory channel from the below-embedded video.
