We live in an age where a growing number of people spend more time texting, taking pics, and sharing on social media than they do actually talking to real life human beings. I’m sure we all know at least a few people like that in our lives (or perhaps you happen to be one?). We all know the type: always checking in on social networks, sharing pics of their food, sharing pics of random signs of places they are going to, and just doing their damned best to clog up our social feeds with useless junk.
A new comedic video by The Mystery Hour comedy group highlights this type of behavior by talking about the struggles of “Instagram husbands”, the men behind the women who are addicted to Instagram. The video is obviously a parody, though they do a great job of making it seem like a legitimate call for support, complete with its own website.
At the very start of the video you are greeted with: “My name’s Jeff, and I’m an Instagram husband,” it begins. “Behind every cute girl on Instagram is a guy like me. And a brick wall.” From there the video discusses the problem and how difficult it is to be an Instagram Husband.
We certainly recommend checking out the website, in addition to watching the video. We imagine just about all of us can relate to this on some level, perhaps you have (or had) a girlfriend, spouse, or even just friend or family member that was addicted to a level that seemed almost comedic.
What do you think of the video? Know someone addicted to social media, Instagram or otherwise? Share your thoughts down in the comments.
