Thankyou, based @brosbeingbasic

Almost a year on, and still plenty of gold to mine.

With Instagram recently kicking off their Instagram ads, who knows, maybe soon we'll all get sick of it and start looking for some other instantly gratifying visual social feed? Although, remember when Facebook started doing ads and we were all like like, 'That's it, I'm going back to MySpace'? More and more though, plenty of parody accounts are holding the mirror up to the mirror that's on the back of our phone and pulling the piss out of your terrible social media habits. Last week we shared a great little photo series from Thailand-based photographer Chompoo Baritone, and today we're taking a look back over the past year of another great account - @brosbeingbasic.

To be honest, anyone can recreate dumb people's attention-seeking Instgram posts - personally we find the most joy in their incredibly #strong #hashtag game and captions. Enjoy a few recent favourites below:
