We’ve all seen pictures in magazines and online ads of men and women with outrageous before and after pictures, seemingly proving that some ‘health product’ or fitness program can also help you change.

YouTuber  just went viral with his latest video exposing how they take those photos, and it’s not like you’d think. The two day old video is already nearing two million hits. 

The secret is taking the after picture first! Then drink and eat until you feel like a beached whale, get some bad lighting, and it’s time to take the before picture. What a scam!
