A YouTuber tricked influencers into promoting gravel by saying it was the moon

Louise Thompson fell HARD


A YouTuber has tricked influencers into promoting gravel on their Instagram accounts by telling them it was actually a piece of the moon.

Josh Pieters sent boxes of "pieces of the moon" to 40 influencers, most of which were cast members of Made in Chelsea. He posted the video of the prank on his YouTube channel.

He sent compliment slips, certificates of authenticity and a piece of gravel in a plastic container claiming to have been sent from the National Space Centre.

The gifts were supposedly sent to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the moon landing.

Wow, just wow.
