You know the girls on your Instagram feed expertly posed against brick walls, sharing photogenic donuts or coffee cups, and sitting ever so candidly on sets of stairs, displaying cute outfits.
How do they manage to snap all these seemingly nonchelant photos anyway? Stash a tripod in their purse? Constantly ask passersby to take their photos? Nope. They have got Instagram Husbands!!!
A new video by The Mystery Hour perfectly captures the role of these unsung heroes of social media. “Behind every cute girl on Instagram is a guy like me… and a brick wall,” one Instagram husband says. The rest of the video chronicles lifestyle blogger-type girls staging their photos with help from their (unwilling) other halves.
An online support community, InstagramHusband.com, is there to help out all of those human selfie sticks. This platforms offers information about the ‘symptoms’, tips about how to approach your wife and ‘real life’ stories form guys. “She only speaks in emojis now, which is difficult, because my first language is human,” user C.Nichols writes. We feel you man, we really do.
Boyfriends and husbands of the world, who have ever been scolded for taking a sip of their cappuccino before it was properly photographed, this video is for you.
