If you know anyone who sees themselves as a bit of an artist every time they use one of the many filters available on the app Instagram when taking a photo, or maybe you are that person, you will probably love this video. Just as the internet community loves a good prank video, parody videos such as this one which hit very close to the source material are also extremely popular. This is especially true due to the massive popularity of this app.
Instagram is a smartphone app that was recently famously acquired by Facebook for $1 billion. The evidence of this can be seen in many people’s wall posts with various filtered photos being posted via Instagram. The features of Instagram are very impressive and can make some photos look even more amazing or interesting than they already would have done, but sometimes people go overboard as this video highlights. Posted on the website College Humour it is a spot on parody of the kind of mundane things people take photos of, like the meal they are about to eat. Since being posted on the site two days ago it has had over 318,000 likes.
Does this parody highlight the pointless nature of Instagram?
