SXSW: That viral 'DO NOT MOVE HERE' plane photo is not real
It's become an annual tradition for locals to ask those visiting Austin for SXSW not to move to the city. But no, there was no plane in the Austin sky bearing the same message for festgoers.
A photo appearing to show a plane flying a banner that reads "DO NOT MOVE HERE" above the famous Frost Tower has spread on sites like Reddit, but it didn't actually happen. According to a 2018 KVUE report, a local photographer named Xavier Garner created the altered photo, which quickly took off online. The image resurfaced again this year with the start of the festival this past weekend.
Don't worry fellow Austinites: SXSW 2019 comes to an end Sunday, March 17. Until then, we've got a handy list of places to eat to avoid the festival madness.
