Ridiculous People Are Hiring a Fake Private Jet to Pretend to Be Rich on Instagram

By  | 

If you want to show off your financial superiority on social media but don’t actually have the social or literal capital for more than a blowout and a pair of #louboutins, a new company is ready to make all your dreams come true.

According to The Telegraph, it’s now possible to rent a private jet for an Instagram photoshoot. The jet won’t take off, and you won’t actually go anywhere. But with any luck, your Instagram followers will think you’re off to Cannes or something.

Private Jet Studio is an actual company based in Moscow, and they provide a grounded Gulfstream 65 airplane for photos. A two-hour photoshoot costs $245 with a professional photographer. That’s roughly a tenth the price of what it would cost to rent a private jet for two hours and have it take off. Without the photographer, it costs $200.

Renting a private jet for a photoshoot would make a lot of sense for an ad company, but this place is targeting wannabe rich kids of Instagram. It’s ridiculous and silly, and I cannot believe I didn’t think of this first.

Hair and makeup services can be added for an additional fee. I wonder what it costs if she opens the Champagne or eats a berry.

Now she’s drinking Champagne, but the bottle is still closed …

This dog is very confused about what is going on.

It’s even great for parties! (That is a lie, this is a terrible party.)

Love the Birkin casually thrown over the opposite seat. So casual and subtle!

The whole thing seems pretty silly. This is the sort of thing that would make a person take a long, hard look at their life and their goals. “I just paid $200 to take pictures on a private jet so people think I’m rich or connected enough to fly on a private jet.” Every time you’d see the photos, you’d feel like a sham.

Is this going to fool anybody?

This doesn’t seem worth it for anybody who doesn’t already have tons of strangers following them. If I posted a photo on a private jet, my friends would be like, “Liz, we literally just saw you and  your kid knock over a cart at the farmers’ market. Who are you trying to fool?”

Maybe you could use this service to impress all the bots you bought to make it look like you have a ton of followers.

Even for an “influencer,” this doesn’t seem worth the risk. If anyone finds out you’re faking, you’ll probably go viral for real. The headlines practically write themselves: Instagram Star Caught Using Fake Private Plane, and the Twitter Reactions Are Hilarious.

What do you think of the fake private plane selfie? Let us know in the comments.
