Boyfriends of Instagram Shows Sad Reality Behind Most IG Posts

As this decade comes to a close, we want to take a moment to shine a spotlight on one of the decade’s most fascinating creations – the true unsung hero of social media: The Insta Boyfriend. You know who we’re talking about, the guy whose sole purpose in life is to snap photos of his girl…the beau for whom posts, comments, and likes are the most accurate metric for the future and happiness of his relationship.

And it was just a matter of time before the man “behind the gram” would be thrust in front of the camera as a pop-culture phenomenon in their own right, and we have none other than Taco Bell to thank for expediting this transition (and with the now-familiar phrase “sunset heart hands”).

If you don’t get why we’re thanking Taco Bell, it’s a reference to the fast-food chain’s new campaign promoting their “Rolled Chicken Taco.”  This ad features a handsome young guy, hands full of the aforementioned Mexican delicacy, as he struggles to get to his phone while being admonished by his girlfriend to take a photo while she is in posing in some insanely basic and contrived pose.

Say what you will about The Bell’s food, but this ad clearly shows that the company has its thumb on the pulse on this narcissistic zeitgeist.

If you can’t get enough of gawking at these Insta boyfriends, then check out Boyfriends of Insta’s feed. They post shots of these creatures in their natural habitat – in front of sunsets, beautiful buildings, solid-colored walls, even patterned walls in the most unnatural positions with camera in hand to get the perfect shot of their specimen.

With this decade comes to a close, let’s take a page out of Melania Trump’s playbook a ‘be best” err, better than we were, let’s stop and enjoy the moment.
