'Filter My Life' Video Mocks Those Who Obsess Over Instagram Filters

This hilarious video mocks the popularity of Instagram filters and how much time we waste on them. In the 'FML -- Filter My Life' video, we follow an ordinary guy who becomes obsessed by documenting his life, every waking moment (and meal) on Instagram.

After much agonizing, he complains to a friend, "I can't get a good shot for the life of me" and his buddy recommends something that will solve all of his problems, "Bro, you don't have to have any talent anymore to be a good photographer, you just need a good filter." Our friend then spirals further down the rabbit hole of social media and nearly loses it when he calls his friend screaming: "Instagram is down!"

The FML video is a delightful look at the amount of time our generation can waste on social media, sharing and documenting our lives to the point of parody.
