If you’re one of those gals who repeatedly asks her husband, boyfriend or significant other to take pictures of her for Instagram, this video was made for you.
Ladies, let me introduce you to “Instagram Husbands,” a satirical video portraying husbands whose lives are slowly being ruined by their wives’ addictions to Instagram. The video follows a few couples where wifey has to have the perfect pic to post and hubby has to find the perfect angle from which to take the perfect posting pic. Say that 10 times fast.
While this video succeeds in poking fun at women who are overly obsessed with the ’gram, there are two things worth noting, here. First, the sad truth is that Instagram addiction is probably a real issue in many couples’ relationships—married or not. Second, this doesn’t apply to only women, dear Instagram husbands. Any girl out there who’s ever dated a hypebeast or a sneakerhead knows that the struggle for the perfect photo to ’gram is very, very real.
Having said that, the video is hilarious mainly because of its one-liners. “Behind every cute girl on Instagram is a guy like me… and a brick wall,” one husband reflects. “I’m basically a human selfie stick,” another admits. “We used to eat our food. Now we just take pictures of it,” a hubby laments. Preach, IG husbands, preach!
