Classify reveals how he fooled the internet with viral Amber Heard photo

Popular YouTuber Classify revealed he was behind Amber Heard’s fake viral ‘Mega Pint’ photo and how he did it.

With advances in technology, deepfakes and photoshops can trick even the most suspicious of internet detectives, as YouTuber Classify recently revealed with a viral photo of an Amber Heard look-alike.

Amber Heard has been a hot topic of celebrity gossip lately following her public and chaotic court case against ex-husband Johnny Depp. As a result, post-trial photos of her were shared and wildly scrutinized.

However, in the case of a recent photo that went viral, it turned out that Amber Heard wasn’t in the picture at all.

YouTuber Classify explains how he faked this photo of Amber Heard.

After the defamation lawsuit between Heard and Depp was settled, pictures of Heard – who was fined $15 million – were all over the internet.

This gave YouTuber Classify the idea of ​​finding an impostor of Amber Heard’s and posing her for a viral photo.

Classify started by searching Instagram for a stand-in who looked like Amber Heard, eventually settling on actress Kseniia Dubovitz. Classify flew her to Los Angeles and gave her a complete makeover with clothes and makeup that Heard himself was known to wear.

The disguise was apparently so convincing that a TMZ bus passing by when Classify took the soon-to-be-viral pictures, people dubbed the model “Amber” — and even rapper Bobby Shmurda stopped by for a photo (though it’s not clear whether he really thought this was heard or knew it was a scammer).

How did Classify make the photo go viral?

After they secured the photos, Classify hired their friend FaZeBlaze to post the photo and claimed he saw the real Amber Heard at brunch.

Upon posting, the photo was immediately retweeted on Twitter, with viewers seeming to think this has been heard. Attention rose even further when influencer Keemstar retweeted the photo to his 2.7 million followers.

When the video ended, Classify revealed that the photo had over 150,000 likes on Twitter and was turned into TikToks (though sadly it didn’t explode on Reddit either).

However, after showing how easy it was to fool the internet, Classify wasn’t sure if it was worth it. FaZe Blaze also reflected on how disturbing it was that no one verified or researched the truth of the image.
