Photos Of Boyfriends Of Instagram Being Forced To Photograph Their Girlfriends Is Taking The Internet By Storm
Ever since digital cameras were integrated into our cell phones, which we carry with us everywhere, photos have never really been the same. As a society, we photograph everything from our mug of coffee to our baby's poop explosions. Somewhere in there an awful lot of women on Instagram are striving to take "the perfect photo." The perfect photo is a photo that looks innocently spontaneous, it just happened to be perfect because everything about the subject and her life itself is perfect. Which, realistically, we know is not true because nothing is perfect. So where does the magic behind the perfect photo come from? Since selfie sticks are not as popular as memes would have you believe, we've recently learned that the secret is: boyfriends. That's right, boyfriends, and one Facebook/Instagram account is out to set the record straight.
Boyfriends of Instagram is run by two anonymous Australian dudes who hit a social media goldmine when they began posting photos people have shared of boyfriends "going to some pretty impressive lengths to photograph their girlfriends." This seemingly simple concept has managed to be absolutely hysterical and that's probably because it highlights the absurdity of the person we perceive ourselves to be online. When our boyfriends are hanging out of train windows or using nothing but their leg muscles to hover above the deep end of the pool for a photo and a few hundred "likes," the only real response is to laugh.
1. Sometimes your photographer also has to be your coach.
Shout out to the person who snapped this, they have my undying gratitude.
2. You're welcome for this gift of laughter.
This entire photo is at least 10x better because of his bathing suit.
3. What is even going on here?
How many broken legs happen in the name of Instagram? Someday, there will be a statistic for that.
4. There is no age limit on "the perfect photo."
However, the learning curve here alone is impressive and if anyone on Earth could make Boyfriends of Instagram adorable... it's this old couple.
5. Down low.
Boyfriends of Instagram asks, "how low can you go? Okay, go lower." Anything for perfection.
6. Sometimes bros gotta do what bros gotta do.
For example, when a small herd of Instagram girls gathers for a photo, sometimes a bro has to climb on the shoulders of his other bro in order to get the perfect photo. C'est la vie.
7. What do we come to the beach for anymore?
Not a romantic rendezvous, no. Look at all the boyfriends majestically photographing their girlfriends! Amazing.
8. Improvising, teenage girl edition:
When you don't have a boyfriend you can always try and coach dad through the process.
9. Alright, alright...
This one is at least a little impressive.
10. Don't try this at home.
Your head might get squashed by a taxi, but, you know... the perfect photo is totally #goals.
Get yourself two boyfriends to make absolutely sure you get the perfect photo every time.
12. Going the extra mile.
Anything for the ladies, right?
13. "Go on a train ride with your girlfriend," they said.
"It will be fun," they said.
14. Beach day? More like spontaneous photo shoot day.
Being a boyfriend has never been more annoying.
15. I hope that camera is water proof.
Because it won't take much to fall into the pool at this point, buddy.
16. Geting the perfect photo or plot to have your boyfriend "accidentally" drown?
Tit for tat.
17. Photographer pose:
The toilet. It's a classic.
My vote says this pony shot was worth it.
19. The real question here is:
Is he begging her to stop or is he poised to take the perfect photo? These days, we just cannot tell.
20. When you need the perfect shadow on the beach:
Get your boyfriend to make it.
21. He didn't do it for the vine.
He did it for his lady.
22. You gotta do what you gotta do.
23. Bend it like...
Well, like a boyfriend of Instagram.
24. I'm starting to see a connection...
Between the teeny-tiny bathing suits boyfriends wear and how likely they are to land themselves on "Boyfriends of Instagram."
25. A man with that much back hair will always take a photo of his girlfriend.
It's like a law or something.
26. You know what they say!
The couple that Instagrams together falls down and breaks their necks together.
27. Isn't holding hands these days romantic?
No, not really.
28. Well that didn't work out quite right.
Plot twist: she submitted the photo on account of her perceived notion he failed her miserably. She then dumped him.
