Spare a thought for the Instagram Husband

What’s an Instagram Husband you ask?

Once you watch the video you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about. And there’s a very good chance that you know someone who is currently fulfilling the role for his/her significant other.

In today’s day and age it’s all about the number of likes you can get on Instagram, how many comments you get on Facebook or how many retweets that clever tweet gets you. Because followers right?

Have you ever looked at someone’s Instagram picture and tried to work out just how they got themselves caught in certain lighting (you’ll notice the #nofilter, but know they’re lying) or just how it came to be that they were caught in a specific pose – when trying their best to act natural. Did they ask a random stranger to take the picture of them walking down the street? NO. That person has probably got an Instagram Husband.

The folks at the Mystery Hour, an Emmy Award winning comedy show, came up with this gem below. It’s gone past five million views and has spawned it’s own website (linkย here) which is great entertainment when boredom kicks in at the office.

Now, after watching that ask yourself, are you an Instagram Husband?

If you identify yourself in this then share it as a cry for help. Do you know someone who has had to cancel his golf membership and has been forced to take on the responsibility, read burden, of being an Instagram Husband? Then point this out to them.
