Nobody knew everything was scripted- it was a piece of performing art project called ” Excellences and Perfections”. Imageries of living a perfect lifestyle attracted mass amount of “fans” showing how powerful Instagram as a tool is. It is definetely the best thought through artwork of the digital era.
