A Vending Machine to Buy Instagram Likes
Yes, and of course it’s in Los Angeles. Where else would it be?
Entertainment 06 Jan 2019

Yes, and of course it’s in Los Angeles. Where else would it be?
So if you find a vending machine in downtown LA, or in Melrose, or beyond, this is where you can get Instagram likes for sale in candy boxes, as well as candy bar shaped ‘witty captions’ and even ‘DM sliders.’ For only $10 for 1,000 fake followers? Yes, but it comes with a catch.

It’s a sarcastic, trippy take at the Ace Hotel in LA, and this is all a marketing stunt for a new documentary coming out on iTunes called Social Animals, which follows three Instagram influencers, who are all teenagers: street photographer Humza Deas, actress Kaylyn Slevin and student Emma Crocket.

You can actually buy actual likes and followers this way, but do you really want to?
Watch the film first, it might change your mind.
