Have you ever thought, “Instagram? Isn’t that the app that makes people feel artistic because it puts an effects filter on their crappy photos of the mundane?” If you have, then this CollegeHumor music video parody is for you.
Using the music of one of the most loved bands on Earth, Nickelback, CollegeHumor has once again proven that they are the masters of parody by taking the band’s 2005 hit song, “Photograph,” and transforming it into “Look at this Instagram.”
The video mocks Instagram’s users and their excessive picture-taking of every day things such as clouds, a plate of food, an old door, a book, and the classic, self-portrait in a mirror.
Sure, Instagram has wasted a lot of the internet’s bandwidth with its photos of ordinary objects, but it’s better than the times of old MySpace where every photo was of your own face taken at a strange angle above the head. So thank you, Instagram users. You’re not so bad after all. But here’s a video to make fun of you anyway.
