Instagram Video has been around for about two months now, so this post might be long overdue or just in-time. Unfortunately, some of #TeamDroid still have the misfortune of being able to see IG vids and not being able to record them, like myself. Despite, my misfortune Instagram Video is still one of the best innovations ever. But 15 second videos do have their pros and cons, which prompted Four Things You Need to Know About Instagram Video:
1. Beautiful People Look Better When They Don’t Speak
It’s really not as bad as it sounds. See here’s the downfall of IG videos, for all those women that remain attractive after they press record- there are a handful of women who you never thought you’d hear speak and once you did you instantly deemed them unattractive. It’s something about imagining someone to be exactly how you wanted them to be and then being utterly let down by either their voice, opinion, sense of humor, etc. Some crushes should just remain silent and continue to be fawned over.
2. Your Ignorant Friends Can’t Handle The Freedom
All of us college students/graduates or people on the up-and-up have friends that incriminate themselves day in and day out on IG. Like remember back in grammar school when you use to get free-time, well these are usually the a**holes that took it too far and ruined it for everyone. The type of people that shh’s and be quiet’s couldn’t help. Now they’re just grown and still messing up free-time.
3. Vine is for the Twerk & Rachet Videos(what Myspace is to Facebook)
Vine is now the speak-easy for twerk videos and all rachetness. Instagram videos are the videos you can usually scroll through with your moms and have a good laugh about. But if your mother saw majority of what you thought was funny on Vine she’d be disgusted. In June we all asked, “Is this the end for Vine?” and I don’t think it’s been decided yet. Vine is a degenerate’s playground, not to mention it’s much easier to be funny in a seven second clip.
4. Your Ex Will Now Appear to Be Having Way More Fun
If you are like 93% of most people in the world, you probably still spy and monitor your ex’s life. See club pictures can be staged. We’ve all been in an empty club with a group of women snapping 35 pics-per-minute, then seeing their IG and it looking like they had the time of their lives. You can’t do that with IG vids, you can’t fake fun or boring anymore. Now when your ex is having fun you can hear it. You can hear her drunk girlfriend’s screaming, the guy who’s whispering in her ear while she’s recording, and Versace Versace playing in the background. I just suggest you steer clear of her IG page altogether. Heed my advice, why torture yourself bruh?
