Unsurprisingly, we see some pretty weird things whilst working on the Internet; from the girl who wanted to cut her hair with a drone to the who beauty vlogger who used her sock as a blending sponge, and that’s just to mention a few. But the news story that has emerged over the past few days has got us well and truly confused.
Yousef Salah Erakat, AKA FouseyTUBE, uploaded a video to his vlog channel on Tuesday which saw him and his friend Alex running around LAX airport chasing a man who had supposedly stolen one of their vlogging cameras. The daily vlogger began to film his quest for Alex’s missing camera as soon as they noticed it had gone missing, but it wasn’t long until a young fan told the YouTuber that someone had in fact stolen it and he pointed them in the direction of the thief.
They eventually managed to catch the man and his “girl” red handed, who repeatedly attempted to mislead Fousey and Alex by claiming that they had already handed the camera into airport security. It soon becomes apparent that the man had actually kept the stolen camera in his bag the whole time when airport security came to search him. The whole situation escalated rapidly when the police arrive to handcuff the man for theft whilst his girlfriend, who claims she had no idea, watched him being taken away.
This turn of events in itself would be enough weirdness for us, but the the YouTuber’s story managed to make it into the mainstream media and they identified the thief as Oliver Camilo, the CEO of a multi million dollar company ‘Mojifluence’, who just happen to be responsible for Amber Rose’s emoji’s. In this case, we would of thought that Oliver would have had more than enough money to buy himself his own “$800” camera, so why did he steal one?
According the Oliver, and the girl who hasn’t yet been identified, they thought the YouTubers were actually conducting a “YouTube experiment”, which conveniently seems to be the phrase everyone uses when something goes wrong on the video sharing platform. Fousey made it clear in the description of his video that he had never met Camilo before in his life, and that he didn’t even know he was. He said: “I decided to blur this mans face even before finding out he is the CEO for a Multi Million Dollar Famous Company. He doesn’t need his business out there. When he was in the police car he ducked down so no one took pics and recognized him. Hope this teaches him a lesson.”
What do you think, do you think Oliver really stole their camera, or do you think it was just one big experiment? Let us know in the comments.
