Guys Try to Trick the Internet With an Exploding Tesla Prank
The fact that misinformation can spread like wildfire through the internet has become even more apparent amid the pandemic. Numerous encounters have shown us that you shouldn't believe everything you see on the internet, and now, if you had any doubts before, you have even more reasons to be wary of.
This video will take you through YouTuber William Osman attempting to "break the internet" by making a Tesla Model 3 scale model explode and then convincing everyone that one of his friends, Alex Ernst, is now rich enough to just blow up his very expensive EV.
The video takes the viewer through every step of setting the stage and establishing the most suitable shooting angles. By putting small explosive charges inside the die-cast model, Osman managed to capture a video that is, complete with the power of editing, realistic enough to fool some people into believing the whole thing is real.
The prank was a "success." Alex got "canceled" by thousands of people after posting it online, and some news outlets jumped on the wagon, too. All in all, this video is entertaining and is bound to give you some food for thought. Enjoy!
