Last month an Instagram influencer couple went viral for their “dangerous” photo where the woman is dangling over the edge of an infinity pool in Bali. Now more influencer couples have gone viral for their risky Instagram photos.
Raquel and Miguel from Portugal are the influencer couple that have more than 348,000 followers on Instagram. Their Instagram account explorerssaurus_ documents the couple traveling around the world from Thailand to the Maldives to Taiwan to India. Many of their photos feature them in ridiculous poses that nobody would ever do in real life.
One of their photos shows Raquel and Miguel hanging out of a train while it is moving across a bridge in Sri Lanka. The could have been criticized for taking a “dangerous” and “irresponsible” photo that put their lives and the lives of others in danger. The photo has gone viral and racked up nearly 50,000 Likes.
People have said that the photo will encourage others to take similar pics that could put their lives at risk. Another influencer couple have made the same stunt photo and they too have gone viral.
Influencers Jean and Camille from Brussels pulled off the same train shot for their Instagram. Their page called BackpackDiariez has over 202,000 followers. They too travel around the world making completely unnatural photos that your girlfriend sees and then forces you to try to recreate, but you’re not in the picturesque Bali, you’re at your friend’s beach house at the Jersey shore.
They did the same shot in Sri Lanka and the daring photo has over 54,000 Likes. And people were pretty pissed at them for taking the “dangerous” photo because the internet is fueled by hate.
Something for these influencers to consider is that a study by researchers at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences in New Delhi found 259 people died while attempting to take a selfie between October 2011 and November 2017. So take whatever photos you want “for the Gram,” just don’t fall off a building or a train and land on me.
