Over the years the music industry has been accused of manufacturing pop stars, but not usually in the literal sense. Sure, the Backstreet Boys story about being best buds was just as fake as Britney’s hair extensions, but underneath all of the lies and artificial hair, there was real flesh and bone somewhere. But in Japan finding a young singer with a dream and molding them into a superstar and convincing her to get plastic surgery just isn’t enough. Instead they manufactured pop star Eguchi Aimi from AKB48 on a computer, using her bandmates for parts. Watch the video and see if you can spot the fake before she’s revealed—her fans couldn’t and were pretty shocked by the news.
