Hollywood-based filmmaker Josh Helfferich has launched@TextInstagram, a Twitter account that posts cliché Instagram photos as texts.
The parody account gathers some of the most common Instagram trends and posts them as hilarious yet accurate descriptions, from “feet” to, “blurry photo of three hot chicks you'll never date” to “airplane wing as viewed from two seats back”.
Just after Helfferich launched it on Wednesday, the account has gained over 25, 000 followers by Thursday night.
“It’s been said that the most effective type of humor is that which has at least a little bit of truth to it, and I think people are seeing a little bit of their own feed—or their own photos—in the text-only posts,” he told Mashable.
“I mean, think about it. It’s a chilly, brisk November morning. The barista hands you an absolutely gorgeous caramel drizzled hazelnut latte with foam in the shape of a heart. How are you not going to Instagram that shit with an Earlybird filter? It’s irresistible.”
