Lester Diaz : I live in Florida and been to Miami Beach a bunch of times, and this is the culture there, feeling superior, driving expensive cars while living in a rented room with the toilet next to the bed because they can’t afford an apartment.

John Santos : To this day Vice has yet to recover the lav mic that david took with him 😂

Anthony : Vice does a better job at finding criminal than the CIA and the FBI

peter455sd : Miami is home of some of the greatest douchebags in history

ED PE : I tried being cool wearing my sunglasses at night. after 5 minutes I took them off because I really couldn't see shit.

Romanenko Garage : Going broke trying to look rich

mr031789 : You could see he was lying cuz he was only wearing one hat for all his outfits.

Silent Gloves : The trick to becoming wealthy isn't "fake it until you make it." The trick is to fake being poor; to live on far less than you bring in. Live on like 50% of your income, whatever it is. If you're near poverty, live on 90% of your income. No matter what your income, save some of it. At 23, if this dude put the money he's blowing on cars and clubs into some basic index funds, he could legit live this lifestyle by 45.

daniel olivares : He’s now sub-leasing that microphone he drove off with.

Nate Goddard : "Maybe we could just film you driving out" ..... daaaamn.

Gearhead Daily : "Miami is full of fakes"... yes, you included.

TruePatriot1776 ** : I used to have this kind if mentality back in my 20s. This mentality driven by sex and just trying to fit in. The worst part is surrounding yourself with people that think the same. You will always feel like you have to catch up. Now I'm 34, have a good job, a good running car, a place to live , sipping on my coffee early in the morning, and I am at peace with who I am and how I am. Happiness is riding in that Lamborghini for a couple hours, buying those expensive shoes so you can show the world, upgrading to another new phone that does the same shit as the old one, but peace....when you have peace none of that matters

Erwin Cuellar : 15:25 ...saddest climb ever into an exotic car

Ready Set Terrible : I went to Miami, chilled on the beach, ate at the best restaurants...went to clubs.. had some real fun and didnt have to FRONT like I had money.... apparently your looking for gold diggers and hoes.... plenty of REAL women out there that dont need you to pretend your were someone you're not... Have fun being who you will never be. Just sayin

Q D CHONTENT CHOPE : "my mind is something that never stops working" no sir that is your mouth

Melvin Sewell : This dude took Fake it till you make it to the next level

Alex : Unpopular opinion... This is one of the best videos Vice has produced tbh...

Harris, luke Swaleh : This interviewer is legendary. He hittin all the right questions

Cremonster : This is why black people have so many issues. It's not white people holding us back, it's not the "system". It's constantly chasing wealth through material objects and false fame instead of investments and empowering our own youth in the community. Instead of putting money towards the next generation's education, they'd rather buy a chain and a car that costs as much as a house would. Shiny rocks don't equal happiness or wealth. And that is just scratching the surface, I'm not even getting started on the ideolgies and mental state that is holding out people back

eDubAkaDubalub : I remember finishing watching this, and the next day thinking "what a waste of time, the documentary didn't cover anything." But shortly after it hit me that in a brilliant twist, this documentary captured how important people found it to fake it so well, that even the people they try to have helping them expose fake-flex culture are guilty. Whether intentional or not, its pretty meta.

NIGHT2PWN : sometimes i post my pc specs on my steam but really i got a mac

Peter Nothof x : Bro need therapy.

SoCalFreelance : Businesses built on a city full of posers

lotusbvby : The real wealthy people like warren buffett drive modest cars. Lol going through all of this trouble to appear rich just so you can attract more superficial people.

Old Turntables : Dam,,ole boy just had a Dr. Phil moment. WOW.

Vertie : I don't trust a guy who wears sunglasses at night

Tips4Tat : But he's only 23. He'll outgrow the BS.

Vasiliy S : I would rather invest in real property than cars...

First Time Zac : i ve watched this video 3 times and it's still in my reccomended please stop lmao

Unix Based : I mean the guy being a fake is one thing, but what of a society is that, where people find it important to be seen in a luxury car? Something went really wrong here.

1SparksFlyOut : The guy is an habitual liar with mental issues. He's desperately looking for something that he won't find by being rich or actually owning exotic cars.

portal2passion : First classy guy says don't sit on the car, 2nd wigger punk guy sits on the car,

samuel kamau : Damn brother still gotta can see his life style takes a toll on him

chapo guzman : This dude seems like such a square. Must have gotten laughed at in high school

Oof Boi : How is vice better at finding criminals than the police

Seth Alexander : I feel bad for that guy. I’m really glad he come forward with the truth (even if it was half truth) he showed his humanity there. “I just want to be liked”. That takes courage to admit.

NoYou : 3:00 bro what? Do you know how dumb that’s sounds

theUsesOFnot : he can afford all those cars but just one hat

Kathrine Wilbanks : Real rich people don't drive cars lol

JB11 : Should have called this documentary "Slime"

Motivação Para Todos : VICE interviewer DESTROYED the guy with 1 and only 1 question. DAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYUM.

AlexanderThe Great : Has anyone ever lied and told the truth at the same time like this guy?


Alexander Stewart : I want to see this guy in 10 years. “Shit like this happen ALL THE TIME, SOMETIMES” What? Also, he was inaccurate on the saying about money talks, bullshit walks. It’s the other way around, bullshit talks, money walks. This is because people will talk and bullshit about anything but it’s the people who actually act that make money. This stems from the saying, you can talk the talk but can you walk the walk.

Ma God : Why you always layin'

Mitch Dore : Be original don't sit on car, Next shot, sitting on car lol

HEAT Ledger : that ending lol

fjones1914 : They'll be in business for a while as long as vanity is a thing in Miami.

John Smith : 12:38 LMAO is that keemstar

owen minaj : i didnt know you can be blind and drive
