The New 'Millennials Of New York' Video Makes Fun Of How Addicted Everyone Is To Instagram Likes

I’m in the 100 Like Club, and that’s something no one can take away from me. If you go back to the beginnings of my Instagram, you’ll see some remarkable photos that exist without a single like attached to them. I’ve considered deleting those photos and reposting them just to see how many likes they’d get in the modern era. After all, we all know what it’s like to muster up the will and strength to post a hot photo only to have it fall short of our like expectations. It’s… well, it’s devastating.

Luckily, Millennials Of New York has the total self-awareness to make fun of us for feeling the way we do regarding getting validation out of the amount of people that double-tap our hastily taken iPhone photos.

And I know this video is satire, but honestly? I probably wouldn’t have even liked her with that wax statue of Nelson Mandela (who she referred to as “Morgan Freeman,” which got an even bigger laugh from me when I watched it the second time around). It’s not because I’m racist or anything. It just wasn’t that great of a photo — everything from the filter selection, caption, and overly-excited grin on her face. Like, I get it. Morgan Freeman slayed in his greatest work, The Bucket List, but you have to have some chill about you when you’re meeting celebrities — wax figure or not. She just clearly wasn’t abiding by my rules to create the dopest Sunday Instagrams ever.

But hey, she’s in the 100 Like Club now too so I’m not going to knock her any more than I already have.
