The Playbook For The Modern Man

Provocative Instagram Video Offers Rare Glimpse Into The Mindset Of A Trillionaire

Behind the veil…

“What you would do with a trunk of cash?” This, as well as the eternal “what would you do if money were no object?” are two questions posed over many a campfire (if not first-class suite).

Trending Reddit threads like “if you were filthy rich, what would you still refuse to buy?” as well as the abundance of Instagram accounts dedicated to wealth flaunting (see: Rich Kids Of The Internet) show we harbour a morbid fascination not just with the playthings but the attitudes of The Rich and Famous.

Speaking of, a recent video posted by provocative Instagram account The Trillionaire Life provides curious mortals with a glimpse into the mindset of the mega-rich (when people are allegedly ordering takeaway lunch via helicopter, it’s hard not to be fascinated).

Case in point: when you’ve grown up wearing nothing but Gucci, you’re not worried so much about your multi-million dollar boat (or the helicopter chasing after it) as where your hair sits on your forehead.

Still confused: think back to The Wolf Of Wall Street, when Jordan Belford, at death’s door with his superyacht sinking, was more worried about finding his bag of quaaludes (“I won’t die sober!”) than his jet skis washing off the roof.

In other words: being rich is a state of mind.

Comments beneath the video shows how many people still don’t quite get this mindest.

“So what’s happening here… just flexing?” one commenter asked.

Further posts by The Trillionaire Life paint a similar picture, with The World’s Rich posing in positions and with products as foreign to most of us as a moustache trimmer was to Nietzsche.

From private jets…
