The Most Common Fake Watches & Other Stories From The FakeWatchBuster
If anything, the FakeWatchBuster is a hero because he defends us against fake people. Does wearing a fake watch make you a bad person? Probably not as much as wearing a fake watch in order to convince your followers that you are richer or more successful than you actually are. A major target of the FakeWatchBuster’s attention are people and artists in the hip-hop community who attempt to brazenly share obnoxiously lavish (and arguably poor taste) lifestyles. Whether or not these individuals can afford these luxury items and lifestyles is not the issue. But, presenting these lifestyle examples to people via social media creates unrealistic expectations and cognitive dissonance in the people who want to be like them. Of course, people have been lying about their success for eons, that is only human nature and social media has only exacerbated people’s propensity to do so.
