The images above are taken from 'Brosbeingbasic,' an Instagram account that spoofs some womens' poses by posting gender reversal pictures. The images poke fun at the various picture-taking tropes that have developed along with photo-sharing social media. Hilarious captions and hashtags are also included.

Most of the pictures recreated are group images, like pictures of feet at the spa or a row of guys throwing bras in a lake. Other images mimic selfies that flood Instagram, like a man holding up a cupcake on a park bench, or mirror selfies with a morning coffee that suggests "I woke up like this."

The tongue-and-cheek photo series also sheds light on the lunacy of the numerous suggestive and provocative images on Instagram. Some of these include a bowl of fruit strategically placed near the person's chest, as well as the pervasive legs at the beach pictures.
