Team behind Clean-up Challenge actually just really good at Photoshop

Đống Đa, Hanoi – Documents handed to The Durian have today uncovered the truth behind the recent Clean-up Challenge, a trend more viral than a savage outbreak of super gonorrhoea at some far-flung Quest Festival of yesteryear.

The challenge, which has been encouraging wholesome, environmentally sane behaviour is in fact the mean-spirited machination of a devious few who are just really, very good at Photoshop.

While people across Vietnam have been acting in the best interests of humanity’s long-term survival as a result of the Clean-up Challenge, evidence we received today that we are yet to verify, read, or even really stare at longer than you would a casual roadside fire in Hanoi, has confirmed the worst.

Countless idealistic individuals have gotten off their phones and taken to the streets, beaches, and sparse green patches of Vietnam to rid the nation of discarded rubbish. The craze has seen people who don’t want to watch the planet die a miserable choking death take “Before” and “After” photos of the area they’ve cleaned up. The transformation of affected areas has been both more stunning and easier to look at than even the most skilled nose-job.

But The Durian can reveal that these photos are merely the work of Photoshop enthusiasts sipping cà phê sữa đá into the wee hours of the night.

With the rise of fake news, a term popularised by a fake president, this bombshell series of documents has opened another festering wound on the bloated carcass of trust.

Indeed, it begs the question – is anything we read online to be believed these days?

The Durian met with two young, optimistic, and enterprising teen participants of the Clean-up Challenge to break this devastating news to them in person.

“Well, personally, I think whether it started as real or fake, it’s inspired people to do something real,” explained nubile twerp with a desire to create a habitable environment for generations to come, Nguyen Đéo Gà Diep.

“The virality of this challenge has tapped into a collective fear we all share about environmental sustainability,” added Nguyen’s associate, Van Làm Tình, “It’s good so many people have responded to such an urgent, universal crisis.”

Sickened to his core by such enthusiastic notions of positivity and responsibility, especially from people who look like they have their umbilical cords attached and tucked into their trousers, our reporter was forced to flee to the nearest bar.

The online response to the Clean-up Challenge has not been entirely positive though.

Anti-environmentalist and all-round human butt-plug, Justin Jaffretto, took to social media while hiding behind his penguin profile picture to complain about the trend.

“It’s a bloody disgrace, where the hell am I supposed to throw my litter now? I bet these libtards wouldn’t like it if they found me rummaging through their garbage late at night and taking photos of all their used condoms! They don’t even stop to think that maybe the places they’re cleaning up was more aesthetically pleasing while covered in human debris – inconsiderate snowflakes.”

While these revelations published today by The Durian may have individuals like Jaffretto wanking themselves to sleep and throwing the ejaculate-sodden tissue into a park, the extent of the fallout and what this means for the Clean-up Challenge is yet to be seen.

Will people continue to actively make a positive impact on their environment, or will they too simply take to Photoshop? Find out next week as The Durian sends our reporter undercover as a piece of garbage.
