Fake ads, fake Ferraris and fake ID machines? Our world is full of fakes, and this trend hunter feature displays 22 fakes worth nothing. These fake posts were collected over the last year from our global network of trend hunters.

Implications - These phony replicas might seem like more than meets the eye, but most of them are actually pretty clever mock ups of their intended targets. As long as nobody is hurt or maliciously fooled by them, you have to give their designers credit for making the fake items so uncannily similar to their inspirations. Could these uncanny mock ups one day overshadow their ancestors? Only time will tell.
