These Are The Instagram Clich’s We’re All Guilty Of

These Are The Instagram Clich’s We’re All Guilty Of

For all the variations in which we could snap our heavily-filtered Instagram photos, the majority of us tend to stick with what we know and love: selfies, shots of sock-covered feet, food or those much-loved travel or coffee pictures. There’s nothing wrong with any of these photos – do what makes you happy is our mantra – however, in what we assume is a shout-out to those who think they have the most original social media feed of all time, musician Hierophante has put together a handful of what he feels are the most common Insta-clich’s we’re all guilty of into a rather mesmerising video montage.

Yes, we’re all in the same boat, but it’s okay (and for the record, I love looking at all travel pictures, clich’s and all). As long as you’re not hurting anyone, posting photos is harmless fun and entertainment; so go forth and enjoy your bubble bath pics, six-pack gym selfies and perfect coffee cups we say.

This just serves as a little reminder that we should take our heads down from the clouds of Instagram when possible and remember to enjoy the moments as much as we love snapping them for all to see.

Oh, and in case you were wondering, these are some of the most commonplace Insta-photos. Scroll down to see and watch the full video below:
