That Viral Photo of Justin Bieber Eating a Burrito Sideways Was an Elaborate Hoax

Justin Bieber does not eat burritos sideways.

In fact, the photo that went viral last Thursday that pictured Bieber eating the wrap like corn on the cob, was not even Bieber—it was another person named Brad Sousaa, who looks eerily similar.

20-year-old Soussa teamed up with the YouTube series Yes Theory to pose as the pop singer for one of the greatest pranks since Punk’d

“We wanted to prove a point that staging a story as goofy as it was can be done much more easily than most people can imagine,” Yes Theory’s Thomas Brag says.

“We were trying to think of something that would offend the internet,” Brag says. “It’s like one of those things that you put the milk before the cereal.”
