Bros Being Basic Is Our Newest Instagram Obsession: Find Out Why

Instagram-addicted ladies, proceed with caution. 

Your habits of taking selfies in the gym, sharing your love of basically anything pumpkin-spiced, and quiet nights of snuggling by the fire is all being watched and surveyed — closely. A group of guys and one girl, have banded together under one account to show women exactly how they look when they go all hashtag crazy online. @BrosBeingBasic takes artful snapshots of guys doing girly things — and if you're guilty of any of the offenses, you can't help but to break out in a nervous fit of giggles.

The idea was born after a friend posted an #OOTD (short for outfit of the day) on Instagram. "That got my wheels turning about this whole 'What If Guys Acted Like Girls on Instagram?' concept,” Atlanta-based blogger Ashley Hesseltine tells Us Weekly. "I crowd-sourced on Facebook about the most basic or obnoxious things girls do on Instagram, and people responded like crazy, so I knew I was on to something.” Adding, "Then I turned to my arsenal of hilarious dude friends to bring it life.” 

Exhibit A: The pic above featuring the guys on a peaceful Sunday taking in a game of football: hashtag — "#whatsafirstdown #Ilovetheblueteam #tombradyisperfect"

"One last #PumpkinSpiceMartini before December LOL!" 

What group of girls haven't lined up for a pedicure circle? "TREAT YO FEET today after a long day of shopping! My Bros and I always go to the local nail salon to show our gratitude toward hard working businesses," they shared on Nov. 29. 


Partake in the Black Friday midnight madness? Whatever. "Feeling #thankful for good times with loved ones by the fireplace. And just checking @Shopbop to get ready for #BlackFriday sales."


Ryan Gosling. That's it, just Ryan Gosling. "Be thankful every day, not just one day a year. Taking some time tonight to reflect. #blessed #thankful #humbled #candid #thanksgiving #QOTD."
