Instagram’s ‘Bros Being Basic’ Shows Men Recreating Clichéd Snaps Of Women

A hilarious Instagram account sees men spoofing the clichéd photos that women are often guilty of posting on the photo sharing app. Bros Being Basic, which was launched in 2014 and now boasts 500K+ followers, shows guys posing for gym selfies, rocking facial mud masks in the bathtub, cuddling with their adorable pets, and imitating more ‘basic’ photos that some ladies regularly post. The account, founded by Atlanta-based blogger Ashley Hesseltine and a group of her male friends, also parodies the way some women overuse – and incorrectly use – hashtags.

You may have seen this meme floating around the 'gram the past few days with everyone from @theladbible to @menshumor to @thefatjewish posting it without any credit (albeit the Fat Jew took it down after 30k likes). So we just wanted to let our loyal followers know the story behind this pic — we posted this photo in December 2014, shortly after the account was created. @nickvia had the idea and I (@ashhess) decided to shoot it at Bloomingdale's. Nick's arm was breaking with this 70-lb dog under it, and I seriously almost peed myself from laughing but we got the shot and it's still one of our favorite photos on the account. ? Kinda crazy how it has resurfaced after a year and a half and is now making the rounds on the meme accounts; the Internet is a wild place. We are such big proponents of original content and giving credit where it's due, so a shout-out to @tank.sinatra for doing that when he originally posted it. A lot of these other accounts don't give a fuck and we've definitely come to terms with that (and to be fair, they often don't know the originator). But we still wanted to share the story behind this and thank you all again for supporting us and ORIGINAL CONTENT! #StayBlessed ?
