    In my mind he did all his work before he left on holiday. I mean he took extra steps to cover his tracks and get his content out. Even while he was on holiday he still put in the effort to maintain the facade and even filmed himself doing it.

    I know spoiled man babies in real life who do this so they're friends think they're hard working normal adults. That way they can go to the gym 3 times a day and take they're expensive lifted trucks off roading. If your friend ever takes you off roading and you find yourself thinking how could someone beat up they're own truck for fun, it's because they didnt pay for it. ;)
