A post shared by Bros Being Basic (@brosbeingbasic) on

As embarrassing as it is to admit, you probably don’t have to dig deep into your memory for the last time you acted ‘basic’ on Instagram – you know, posted a photo of yourself in a bathrobe, doing the wheel pose, or drinking a pumpkin spice latte. Or using the caption #blessed for that matter.

It’s no wonder, then, that an Instagram account rather aptly named @brosbeingbasic has managed to rack up over 258,000 followers. It – as its name suggests – depicts men being basic with hilarious results so, naturally, everything from face masks to flamingo pool floats, gym selfies, and girl gangs at Coachella makes an appearance. The creator of the account, comedian Ashley Hesseltine of Girls Gotta Eat podcast fame, insists that it honors women as opposed to poking fun at them, but as Savoir Flair shares a slice of this brilliant account, can we take a moment to request fewer clichés on Instagram please?
