Instagram vs. Reality Exposes The Truth About Those Unrealistically Perfect Pics

We all know that most people share an idealized version of themselves on social media, cherry-picking only the best images, thoughts and experiences to share with the world. But some Instagram ‘influencers’ have taken this concept to the extreme. They bombard their followers with images that are so far from reality that they can sow seeds of doubt in some people’s minds, leading them to strive for unrealistic beauty standards at great cost to their self-esteem and mental health.

Those ‘perfect’ celebrity pics you see on Instagram are far from the casual snaps they appear to be

Luckily, there are people that see the problems in this and are trying to uncover the fakery that goes on behind the scenes. Last week we featured Swiss blogger the_truth_is_not_pretty, who posts honest, real images side-by-side with ones that have been given the ‘Instagram treatment.’ This time we have an amusing and quite shocking video by YouTube star Ethan Klein, who exposes the reality behind some of the more famous influencers.

“I can’t get over the difference! Don’t believe what you see on Instagram folks”

Delivered with his usual comedic flair, Ethan skewers the obvious trickery that some of these influencers get up to on a regular basis. It all goes to show that everything you see online has to be taken with a pinch of salt, and under no circumstances should you compare yourself unfavorably to these people. They are not what they want you to think they are!

“One for the boys out here. Magazines are just an illusion”

Away from the buffed and polished images that we are presented with daily, it can actually be refreshing to see the human side of the famous people that we admire. Social media originally gave us this opportunity to look behind the curtain; sadly though, most social media accounts of celebrities are now run by teams of advisors and managers who don’t allow anything to be shown unless it has been carefully vetted first.

Because while we admire, respect and even idolize some celebrities, we somehow crave some reassurance that they are human too. It helps us to relate to them on a deeper level I suppose. Magazines with headlines screaming ‘Cameron Diaz without make-up,’ or ‘Beyonce’s acne problem’ always sell well because they give people a little peek behind the perfectly-curated curtain, but perhaps it would be easier if there was less fakery, illusion and lies in the first place.
