Photographs of a vandalised car went viral earlier this month , as it seemed a scorned lover had sprayed a Revere Range Rover with red paint as an act of revenge.
Hundreds of people gathered round the car in Knightsbridge on Wednesday May 4 to laugh and take photos. The back of the car, worth £90,000, was emblazoned with the words "I hope she was worth it", with "cheater" across the side of the vehicle.
But it seems that they were duped in a clever marketing stunt, as new footage reveals the truth behind the graffiti.
The video, released by an auto design and enhancement workshop, exposes the incident as an advertising stunt for the new Revere Range Rover Vogue.
The video opens with a member of the R-Tec Auto Design team daubing the luxury car in paint.
"Cheater" was written down both sides of the new car, with "liar" and "hope she was worth it" written on the bonnet, back windscreen and wheel arch.
The vehicle was then left outside Harrods in Knightsbridge, where hundreds of fascinated passers by came to take photos and express their shock.
However it has now been revealed that the incident was indeed a marketing stunt to draw attention to the new car model.
A new car sprayed with the phrase "It Was Revere Not Revenge #Cheater" was released into Knightsbridge by the company to expose the stunt.
The video ends with a disclaimer for car lovers saying: "Please note no cars were harmed in this stunt."
