If you’ve ever wondered what Instagram was about, let Olde Payphone from LA show you in @thexavius: Portrait of an Instagram Artist. Having looked at a few of the other clips by this “sketch comedy group” I think this is one of the few that I appreciate, but this, as iphone photography says, is “spot on parody.”  But I found it hard to watch some of the videos on that site intended to be serious without thinking they must also be parodies, or perhaps the whole site is. Certainly not photography as I know it.

And you can see all 33 of Xavius’s instagrams online.

Perhaps this viral video will have the entirely beneficial effect of cutting down the number of Instagram images some friends of mine post on Facebook. But I doubt it.
