HOAX and SCAM – The horrible larvae from Nivea shampoos
So you’ve probably seen this image hanging around on your friends’ Facebook walls.
(Here it says Nivea, but it could be any other product – like Head & Shoulders, for starters.)
I bet this actually freaked you out. Well, fear no more: this is just an elaborate hoax.
The preview image of the supposed shock video is actually a lotus seedpod photoshopped on a man’s shoulder. This is not a new trick: the hoaxer used an existing shock mail featuring a so-called “Breast larvae” growing and squirming from a skin rash. According to the creepy text, the breast larvae are caused from a non-descript parasite, whose eggs were resting in the fabric of bras. This was previously debunked here by HoaxSlayer, on June 2014.
Notice anything familiar? I bet you do.
That’s right: photo editing magic right there. Rest assured: no larvae on your shoulders, nor anywhere else.
