Regular Guy Instagrams His Lifestyle of the Rich and Photoshopped
How’d you like to kick it poolside with Rick Ross? How’d you like to steal Beyonce from Jay-Z? More importantly, how’d you like to hitch a lift on Nicki Minaj’s outsized behind like a Rebel Alliance soldier riding a tauntaun?
There is a man, just a regular dude with a “regular 9-5 sales job in Kansas City,” who’s done all that and more. Oh, and he’s become a mini Interent celebrity in his own right for doing it. How? By tapping into the combined potential of Photoshop, Instagram and Twitter.
“PeejeT” (he asked that we keep his real name secret) started expertly inserting himself into pop culture scenes several months ago just to entertain himself and a few friends. Since then, however, “it’s kind of blown up through the power of social media,” he told Mashable. He now has more than 50,000 followers on Instagram and, on Wednesday morning, his work hit the front page of Reddit.
“It’s gotten to the point where people expect me to make a picture when stuff starts to trend on Twitter,” he wrote in an email. “I just love making people laugh and it’s awesome getting so many positive responses from people.”
1. “You didn’t call seatbacks, Kanye.”
2. “For real though, who leaked this? @baddiebey”
3. “So I’ve heard you had a rough day… @richforever”
4. “Best seat in the house. #nickiminaj”
6. “Come on @champagnepapi… let’s take some weight off.”
7. “What up?”
