Barn Find Hunter is a show where Tom Cotter travels all around America trying to find rare cars hidden in people’s barns. Cotter makes it his goal to find these hidden gems and leaves no stone unturned in his investigations. When trying to find cars in Alaska, Cutter came across an old Mazda RX-4 and a bunch of other goodies in America’s last frontier.
Finding A Junkyard
It’s Cotter’s goal to find people who have been hoarding cars for many years, and in Alaska, he ran into Robbie, who had a junkyard full of them. Robbie had begun collecting cars when he was a much younger man to restore them. His property was filled with amazing old cars that people would be willing to spend good money on.
Many of his cars were out in the wooded area of his home, and Cotter found a bunch of old Ford Broncos. Cotter then goes on to meet another guy in Alaska who also has a collection of Broncos who was trying his best to restore them.
Finding The Jackpot
Cotter continued his journey and ran into Bonnie, who had a Mazda RX-4 sitting amongst some bushes on her property. She said it hadn’t run for about 20 years, but she bought it new. The 1974 Mazda RX-4 is loved by Japanese car enthusiasts, and Cotter realized he had a real gem on his hands. The car had been left amongst the bushes after Bonnie’s husband reportedly put diesel in it because he didn’t like that it outrun his own car.
Cotter says he would never have known about the Mazda sitting in the bushes if it wasn’t for getting out and speaking to people. Thanks to his friendly nature, Cotter was able to find one of the rarest vintage cars on the market.
45+ Times People Shared Fake Pics of Themselves on Social Media
When it comes to social media, it’s pretty common for people to edit their pictures. However, when does an edited picture cross the line into being “fake?” How much Photoshopping and Facetune does it take before a human being morphs into something entirely different? Well, take a look at this list of fake pictures people shared of themselves on social media and see how people try to pass themselves off on the internet.
World of the Waxwork Dolls
We could almost accept that the young men in this picture are just handsome, dapper types, but we just can’t accept that editing. It’s one thing to iron out some wrinkles and brighten your eyes, but whatever has happened here has gone too far.
It looks like the young man on the right has heavily altered his own face, including narrowing his nose, widening his eyes, and cutting off some of his chin. The whole thing ends up a little distracting.
The Proportions Are All Wrong
In this picture, we have to assume that someone was trying to emulate Instagram-style posing pictures. Unfortunately, somewhere along the line, the editing has gone awry, leaving a cartoonish result that looks completely fake.
We can’t decide if this person’s eyes or chin are most distracting overall. In general, this young woman’s facial features have been over enhanced, making her head seem far too small for her body. We also suspect some bodily features have been digitally altered – this whole thing is off.
Eyes Like Saucers
Clearly this person has taken their editing a little too far, leaving them looking like a werewolf or a vampire. From what we can tell, this person has removed all of their skin texture (lines, dark areas, freckles), and significantly increased the size of their eyes and eyebrows.
It looks like this person might also have decreased the size of their nose, and potentially the width of their lips. Regardless, the result is clearly a picture that’s a little more fake than real.
Inspired by Kylie
There’s no doubt that this doctored selfie is inspired by Kylie Jenner, the youngest of the Kardashian-Jenner clan. While elder sibling Kim popularized the bigger behind, it’s beauty mogul Kylie that’s most associated with having a tiny waist paired with a giant booty. Even this pose is quintessential Ky.
It’s extremely uncommon – and practically impossible – to have these proportions naturally, so people use Photoshop in order to get them. Obviously, Kylie herself also trims her snaps, but with slightly better results.
Wide Eyed With Wonder
What can we say about this one? This overly edited picture looks completely fake, and we can’t believe anyone would actually post it on their social media. Clearly, this person has massively increased the size of her eyes, and potentially changed their color.
The nose looks like it’s been trimmed, and the top lip has certainly been dragged upward so it looks poutier. The chin and jawline have been sharpened, and some makeup seems to have been drawn on top.
Eye See an Issue
This picture helpfully circles some of the evidence showing that this picture has been edited. Whatever way this picture has been Facetuned hasn’t left space for a nose with a bridge, two eyes, and two eyebrows. Rather, the inner corner of one eye has migrated onto the nose. Sounds painful!
Interestingly, though this is an extreme example, many make-up artists do drastically alter their images on social media. If something looks like it’s just too perfect – chances are, it probably is.
We Come in Peace
If you’ve ever see the Tim Burton movie Mars Attacks!, you’ll remember that the invading alien species have very enlarged heads. That’s what we thought of when we saw this overly edited picture that someone posted to their social media.
This looks like a hair modeling picture that’s been excessively toyed with, though we have no idea why. With this dramatic haircut and sharp jawline, this person does end up looking a little like some reproduction images of Cleopatra.
Serving Video Game Realness
Obviously, when playing around with their latest photo, this person just kept turning the settings to max. Contrast? Max! Brightness? Max! Saturation? Max, max, max! The end result is this picture, which looks like it’s straight out of a video game.
Rather than rendering themselves away to a flat, 2D appearance, this person made themselves a walking, talking video game character. It feels like if we look at this picture for long enough, this person would nod, wave, and walk away.
Yep, This Is My Face
It’s hard to take this image seriously, because it’s been edited so ridiculously. Are we really to believe that someone seriously posted this on their social media hoping and believing that none of their friends or family would say anything? Someone would say something!
According to this rather fake looking picture, this person has huge eyes, a minuscule nose, and a comically wide mouth. Their chin is perfectly pointed, and their skin is wrinkle and blemish-free.
It’s Not Just the Face
We’ve seen sharpened chins, widened eyes and chiseled bodies, but let’s not forget about hands. Amusingly, many nail salons Photoshop or blur pictures of clients’ nails, leaving them with freakishly smooth and wrinkle-free hands. Naturally, this leaves nails looking flawless, but it can be pretty distracting once you notice.
This person has blurred or filtered this nail shot, leaving them with barely visible knuckles. It’s this sort of skin smoothing that leaves pictures looking unnatural, even when it’s not the center of attention.
A Little Bit Animated
Is it just us, or does this Photoshop fan look a little like she’s been animated? It seems like when you filter and smooth away all of your real facial features, you end up looking like you’ve been drawn by a Disney animator. Seriously – this person looks like they could burst out singing in a high pitched voice at any moment.
This bad Photoshop job makes this person’s eyes look flat and lifeless, and their nose and mouth look drawn on.
Red Fringed Fabulousness
What do you reckon, folks? Does this look correct to you? Because from where we’re standing, this rather fabulous red fringed jacket looks photoshopped on top of this person. Hey, why buy new clothes when you can digitally add them instead?
We’re not convinced the person in this photograph would actually wear this red, fringed jacket, making us more certain that it’s been added digitally. This picture looks like someone, or some company, advertising clothing without paying for a model.
A Day of Culture
Posting fake pictures on social media isn’t all about making your skin better and your eyes bigger. Nope – with some handy Photoshop you can also add yourself to all sorts of scenes and locations. This chap has added an (edited) image of himself to this background, making him look like he’s had a cultured day at a museum.
There’s something inherently dodgy about posting pictures of yourself at a fake location. Don’t try so hard pal, and stick to actually being yourself.
Watch the Reflection
Unfortunately for this person, a reflection in their photograph ended up betraying what they actually look like. Now is as good a time as any to point out that there’s absolutely nothing wrong with looking like a regular human person. Though it’s tempting to transform yourself into what you see around you, know that those images are also fake and full of Photoshop.
Rather than narrowing her nose and chin, this young lady should embrace her natural beauty.
Lookin’ Long and Lovely
You would think that if you already looked like this person – tall, blonde, conventionally attractive – you’d just leave things as they were. However, that’s not how it works – anyone can be insecure enough to alter their images and make things seem even better than they already are.
In this case, someone has clearly messed with the proportions of this image, lengthening the torso without adjusting anything else. The head looks too small teetering on an extra-long body, and no human looks like this.
Flashing Frozen Smiles
This fake picture reminds us a little of noughties star Amanda Bynes, but also of early career Miley Cyrus and mid-career Selena Gomez. Perhaps this is just because this image has been edited to look like a generic celebrity, and has the same long hair, wide eyes and big smile that teen celebs tend to.
Obviously though, this editing job is a bit of a disaster. It just doesn’t look real at all. The face looks placed upon the neck, and the skin is too flawless.
No Need for Knuckles
Here’s a pair of hands that have been smoothed beyond recognition. In fact, these hands have been so smoothed that it looks like the bone has been removed and they’re just floppy, soft limbs.
While we acknowledge that this fresh manicure looks lovely, we also think that hands should be allowed to have some wrinkles. Let’s be honest – wrinkles just show that skin has been used. What’s so wrong with that? Especially in the case of hands, we prefer untouched pics.
I Did a Little Work
People are entitled to look any way they want, and we have no issue whatsoever with people using makeup, or deciding they’d rather not wear makeup. Furthermore, lots of people swing between the two, wearing nothing on one day, and applying a full face the next.
In saying that, this photo transformation is more than just makeup and clever contouring. In the picture on the left, this person doesn’t have a single wrinkle, whereas they have many in the picture on the right.
Pale and Pretty Filtered
When it comes to filtering and touching up, we don’t want to patronize or shame young women. It can be fun to mess with your real life features, and see what you end up with. The problem comes when people rely on editing, and try to pass off their touched up life as reality.
We don’t know this person’s motive for Facetuning this picture, but the results are a little off. Is it just us, or is the left brow in the wrong place?
This Is My Body, Really
So far we’ve seen a bunch of young folks trying to make their selfies look more impressive. Here’s the middle-aged man version – a picture digitally added on top of a beach ready body.
Personally, we don’t believe that the man who owns this head also has this tattoo or these abs. We reckon the whole thing is a mismatch of pictures, stitched together to make this guy look impressive. From where we’re standing, it looks like he failed.
And Voila, a Different Person!
Look, we know that using cosmetics makes people look significantly different. That’s the whole reason people wear them. We also know that using Photoshop and editing software can drastically change your face. In this example, it seems like we have a bit of both, transforming the person on the right into an entirely different character.
It’s hard to tell what’s been worked on with what here, but looking at the lips alone shows there’s a lot of trickery going on.
Where Did My Face Go?
Could this picture be considered a fake one? Considering this person has managed to erase most of her facial features and character, we think so. It looks like this person started to digitally smooth her skin, and then just never stopped.
The edges of the nose have been blurred away to nothing, leaving just two nostrils in the style of Voldemort. The edges of the mouth have also been blurred, leaving a red smudge rather than two separate lips. Disastrous!
Trying Out a New Look
Here’s someone that’s a big fan of fakery, as each of their posted pictures seems to have been played with and altered. In some pictures, it looks like this person has Photoshopped themselves a smile, especially because the mouth is the only thing that looks like it’s smiling.
In all of these pictures, the jaw and chin line have been messed with, and never to good effect. Truly, these pictures couldn’t look more fake if they tried.
The Mannequins Are Alive!
Speaking of fake, here’s a picture where someone looks like a mannequin that’s just come to life. We presume this person did use a decent amount of tanning product and makeup, but then that they also altered the picture to get more of a flawless finish.
While we understand the celebrity inspiration behind this picture (very Kim Kardashian), the editing has just gone a step too far. However, for this sort of fashion shot, we’ll allow it.
Just the Worst
Truth be told, we kind of love this person, who has created a truly appalling fake picture. This picture actually reminds us of those mutant toys that belong to the bad kid in the Toy Story movies, especially the set of metal claw legs with a baby doll’s head attached. That’s the vibe we’re getting from this image.
This picture looks like someone’s head pasted onto a different body, with potentially different limbs too. The chaotic energy is real with this one.
Why Bother With Real Clothes?
If you could Photoshop yourself a new outfit every day, would you? In reality you could just wear a pair of beige overalls, and then digitally paint something cute on top when you post the picture online. Goodbye spending money on clothes, hello looking good for less.
That’s what this guy must have been thinking when he gave himself this admittedly rather fetching pink suit. We actually love this look, as long as this person knows that we know it’s fake.
Someone Needs Some Classes
Alright, we’re not in the business of mocking people based on their appearance. It might seem that way, but really, that’s not our agenda. Clearly, these two images show entirely different people, so if the one on the left is supposed to be the one on the right, we’ve got issues.
For this dramatic case, we’re going to recommend that the person on the right attends some classes. They could benefit from a Photoshop tutorial, and they might enjoy a little makeup refresher.
Everything’s Totally Normal Here
These edited folks look like they’re being kept against their will and forced to smile nicely for the cameras. Seriously – everyone looks like they’ve been captured and are smiling through the terror. We presume this shocked and scared look is a combination of bad editing and perhaps a little Botox?
Either way, nobody has any wrinkles, blemishes or freckles, while their eyes remain freakishly open. Everyone is baring their teeth, but nobody actually seems to be happy. Get these robots away from us!
Big Muscles Coming Through
It’s not just women that edit their pictures – men are also subject to pressures that make them want to look a certain way. For lots of men and boys, that means creating some muscles. This person has digitally enhanced the muscles in their upper and lower arms. You can tell from the image’s edges that something isn’t quite right.
Obviously it’s a shame that people feel pressured to present themselves in different ways. Dude – it’s fine to have skinny arms!
Have You Seen My Lip?
This image is a little strange right away, thanks to this person’s outlandish blue wig and oversized hair clips. However, we have no issues with eccentric fashions, or people that love playing with cosmetics. The problem with this snap is that part of this person’s lip seems to have disappeared due to poor editing.
This is made all the more obvious because this person is applying lipstick. Worse still, the head of the lipstick also looks distorted, bringing yet more attention to the mistake.
I’m 3D, I Promise
Remember that person who edited their face so much it looked like they were a cartoon? Well here’s another! This person has touched up their face so much that they’ve lost all depth and texture, resulting in a flat, 2D appearance. Their eyes don’t look real, and their skin has been smoothed so much that it looks like a drawing.
This would be great if this person’s intention was to transform their picture into a cute animation, but otherwise, it’s a fail.
Sorry, We Don’t Buy It
What can we say? When it comes to this overly edited selfie, we simply do not buy it. Clearly, this person has altered the dimensions of their body, leaving them looking a little more like a stick insect than a human being.
This young woman seems to have lengthened her torso, legs, and possibly neck. In fact, it looks like the width of her waist is around the same size as the width of her neck. We’re not sure that’s possible!
Nipped and Tucked
Again, this person has started trimming and blurring and just never stopped. The result is a sketchy looking image with plenty of Photoshop red flags. Clearly, some jaw sharpening has occurred here, as this person’s jaw sits out from their ear in an unnatural way.
The shoulders and arms also appear to have been edited, presumably to make this person appear skinnier. The hair also looks altered, perhaps to look longer, thicker, and more luscious. Overall, it’s not a great job.
It’s Me, the Real Boy
If you saw this person coming towards you like this, what would you do? We would heel turn and march in the other direction, politely putting one foot in front of the other until we were far enough away. We wouldn’t be scared of this figure because it’s a real person, but because it’s a creepy combination of various people.
To us, the head, body, and limbs of this “person” look completely fake. We’d be surprised if any part of this image actually exists in human form.
Adjust Head to the Left
What’s actually going on here? That’s what we’re trying to figure out as we decipher shadows, filters and edits in this clearly doctored selfie. Many Instagram filters end up giving an image a completely different vibe and texture, and coupled with edits this can lead to a messy final product.
This person’s head seems to be edited incorrectly for the shape, size and positioning of the rest of her body. A shadow across her neck betrays the digital tinkering.
That Can’t Be Right
Imagine posting this to your social media and thinking that people would accept it as real. In this image, someone has enlarged their eyes beyond a believable size, and made them the same metallic blue color as their coat.
These cartoony eyes belong on a Powerpuff girl, a Disney princess, or a video game character. They do not belong to an adult woman. Also, when editing eyes, take care to also edit eyebrows – this person seems to have forgotten.
You Missed a Spot
Sadly, the person who edited this image seems to have just abandoned the job halfway through. What other reason could there be for this blurry spot in the middle of their face?
Unless this person was trying to erase their mouth and nose, this Photoshop error has left their picture looking extra fake. We assume this was a little skin smoothing gone wrong, where this person kept erasing wrinkles until they’d also erased their mouth.
Who Are You Kidding?
When it comes to men and boys and Photoshop, it’s all about making yourself look bigger, not smaller. While women and girls are trying to shave off their body parts, boys and men are trying to make themselves look even bulkier.
This person has really messed up their proportions, leaving them with a giant upper body and a comically small waist. This body shape just doesn’t occur in the real world, proving to us that this picture is all fake.
What a Transformation
We’ve seen a couple of these before and after images, and again, we don’t wish to criticize anyone for not wearing makeup or looking like a supermodel. If these two pictures are supposed to be of the same person, clearly the lady on the right has some quite advanced editing skills.
In this edit – or fake picture – the nose has been slimmed, the jawline trimmed, the eyes recolored, the lips plumped, and the brows lifted. Oh, and the hair has been touched up too.
Come On, Stop It
It’s hard to take this edit seriously, but this picture really was posed on someone’s social media. This picture couldn’t look more fake, but it’s actually a combination of poor editing and poor makeup skills. On the one hand, we have ridiculously fake looking green eyes with obviously drawn on lashes.
On the other, we have an extremely terrible lipstick job, with a cupid’s bow that really goes off-track. Put the two together and you’re left with this visual nightmare.
I’m a Barbie Girl
This person clearly has a lot of fun transforming herself into a living Bratz doll, and she leaves very little from her actual face. Truth be told, it’s unfortunate that young women feel the need to trim away their face and features, especially because they do so to fit a particular beauty standard. For young girls of color, this often means transforming features so they look more European.
This person has dramatically narrowed their nose, sharpened their chin, and changed their skin tone.
Welcome to the Gun Show
We really, really hope this edited image is a joke, because otherwise it’s a little bit sad. Surely no one would think that these digitally added muscles look real… would they? Clearly this list proves that people have strange criteria when it comes to what they think looks real or not.
Regardless of this person’s intent, the final picture is absurd. The arm muscles are clearly added – and in the wrong color – which makes us question the abdominal muscles too.
Watch Out for the Eyes
Here’s a truly hilarious set of pictures that make this family look like a pack of werewolves. Clearly this person likes adding cold, green-grey, wolf-like eyes to their pictures, and even adds them to family members’ eyes too.
We wonder why this person doesn’t just grab themselves a pair of colored contact lenses. That way, they could have their favorite piercing eyes all the time, and not just in photographs. They could even buy some for their family so it seems genetic.
Ironed Hands, Great Nails
So far, we’ve seen several fake pictures of people’s hands post-nail appointment. In this snap, it looks like this hand has been ironed, because it’s so completely wrinkle free. Whatever way this picture has been edited makes it look like this hand has just been through a steam-roller, or a mangle.
Again, the lack of texture on this skin makes it look flat and two-dimensional. It turns out we actually need some wrinkles and blemishes just to show that we’re real!
You Can’t Trust Anyone
Finally, we round out our list of fake pictures people posted to social media with the reminder that you can’t trust anyone. This image comes from a hairdressers, showing that the color and texture of hair has been altered before being posted on social media.
We’ve seen this from nail technicians and makeup artists, and now we know that hairdressers are up to the same tricks. The picture on the right has been edited to look cooler, more toned, and more textured.
