College Humor rips on Instagram in Nickelback song spoof

Tired of seeing hundreds of photos of meals, clouds, animals, kids and feet on Instagram? Well, so is College Humor.

The comedy site posted an original video called “Look at this Instagram,” changing the lyrics in a Nickelback song to bash the insanely popular photo sharing service.

“Started out as a lemon tart, then my phone went and made it art,” a guy sings while snapping a photo with his iPhone. The video makes fun of popular picture subjects, such as plane wings and fireworks, as well as the various filter options available to modify photos. “Putting glasses on a cat, I’m the first one to think of that,” a girl sings while posing her animal.

As the video goes on, the humor gets more preposterous, like a guy Instagramming a photo of another guy Instagramming, and a dad missing his child’s first steps because of an obsession with red eye. The video features some NSFW language, but is absolutely spot on with its jabs, like most of College Humor’s work.

So for all those out there who are tired of the Instagram madness, check out the music video and enjoy a few laughs. The lyrics are in the subtitles, so you can even sing along.

For those still infatuated with the photo sharing site, you might want to take note and tone things down a little bit. Stop taking photos of every amazing sunset ever.
