We’re all guilty of uploading cliched photos to our social media feeds and that includes Instagram but to remind us all not take ourselves too seriously is the hilarious account called Bros Being Basic which parodies the sort of photos that the opposite sex frequently choose to upload, complete with similar captions and model-like poses.
The account was started in 2014 and has been hugely popular ever since and now boasts an impressive 430k followers. Scrolling through their feed you’ll find plenty of cliched poses, captions and hashtags that are all very familiar. Below we’ve gathered some of the funniest photos, but the real question is how long will it take until there’s an account that parodies men? probably not long at all.
