A Chinese student demonstrated how you can easily deceive people by blinding them with shiny tinsel. 23-year-old Zou Yaqi (Zou Yaqi) studies at Peking University at the Faculty of Arts. She caused a wave of discussions on the Internet and the media by implementing a unique graduation project. The girl conducted an experiment, portraying a socialite for three weeks. The Chinese woman was chic to the fullest, without paying a penny for anything. Find out how she managed to convince everyone around her of her "stardom" from our material.
Resourceful Zou slept on plush sofas in the lobby of five-star hotels and was treated to alcohol and delicious snacks at elite parties. All this became available to her due to the fact that she pretended to be a rich socialite.
The student had been preparing for an unusual experiment that took place in May 2021 for several months. Since January, she has been attending various parties and social events to find out where free snacks and drinks are offered. Eventually, the girl made a list of bars, cafes, hotels and supermarkets where she could live and eat for free.
First of all, Zou entered the image of mingyuan, a representative of Chinese secular influencers. She studied their demeanor, clothing style and makeup. The student dressed up in a designer velour suit, painted her lips with red lipstick and complemented the image with a fake glamorous handbag.
First, the girl visited the VIP box at the airport. She got access there using a fake card, similar to those given to regular customers in Chinese banks, travel agencies and airlines. The VIP-box attendants never look closely at them, just glancing at a colored piece of cardboard. Despite the fact that you can spend only three hours in the VIP-client box, no one drives visitors away from there. As a result, Zou lived there for three days, sleeping on the couch and eating free food from the buffet.
On the first day, the student went to the Gucci department at the same airport and asked the sellers to give her a free paper bag with the brand logo. So she added even more gloss to the image of a socialite. In addition, Zou could hide free food in a bag in reserve. Later, the girl went to the Louis Vuitton department. After seeing the glamorous beauty with a Gucci package, the store employees left other customers and immediately began to curl around her. They showed the visitor expensive things and invited her to events dedicated to the brand.
After the "conquest" of the airport, the Chinese woman headed to Dongcheng – one of the richest districts in the center of Beijing. Of course, she pretended to be an influencer again to get free food and a place to stay overnight. First of all, Zou chose one of the most luxurious hotels. There she gave herself a fictitious name and indicated the wrong room number at the reception. As a result, the student got access to free showers, a sauna and a steam room.
In addition, Zou ate foie gras and gourmet desserts at parties and social events where she managed to sneak in. She went to auctions selling expensive jewelry and even tried them on. The girl learned to be so unperturbed that she stopped being nervous, portraying another, glamorous personality. Soon, the Chinese woman did not worry about being exposed to the open water.
First of all, the three-week experiment was part of Zou Yazi's graduation project on capitalism and consumerism. The student recorded her entire experience in the form of photo and video materials. As a result, her work has become one of the most discussed creative projects in China in 2021.
Since then, Zou's brilliant experiment has caused a storm of conflicting opinions on the Internet and the media. While many admire her idea, others criticize the girl for abusing the status of a student at Peking University, which allowed her to conduct a similar experience. Despite the criticism, the Chinese woman is glad that her creative project has attracted public attention. Thanks to him, she signed a contract with an art agency and successfully graduated from university.
Like Zou, a model from the UK decided to conduct an experiment and try to make acquaintances, trying on different images. She has been a sex bomb, a phyto, a bespectacled man, a businesswoman and other types of women.
