As virtually pegging one's favorite cupcake designs and hairstyles onto their homepage has become an insanely addictive pastime, the Pinsanity! online short depicts what can happen if users bring their obsession into real life -- and take their pinning too far.

Created by Comediva and and The Blush, the social media spoof portrays a hilarious depiction of a pinner who has gone rogue. She has tired of Internet admiration and repins and resorted instead to pegging the real-life objects that she admires onto a giant-sized board in her bedroom.

Going push-pin crazy, the main character possesses an unquenchable desire to own everything that she thinks is cute, cuddly or fashion forward -- and then to display it in a creepy, life-sized collage for all to see. Stats for Social Media Obsession Videos Trending: Older & Mild
