Interesting.Michael Cao3 uur geledenLot of extra nice details besides the aspect ratio during the bridge. As the shot widens, you see the less dressed parts of the set, the open drawer, the keyboard on the side etc. It's one of the few times Bo looks directly at the camera. Most of the time the song is in third person, and it technically still is as it's quoting. However, this is the only time Bo is singing in first person. This is also the only time the narration matches the video with exception for the avocado.Keegan Lillith3 uur geledenI’m going to save this video specifically because some of the pictures are really cool and I can use them for photography class.PM3 uur geledenImagine getting choked up and then hearing "a goat cheese salad" right after, this is really an emotional roller coaster 😂Rachel Braver3 uur geledenI think this is what Onision think's he's like lol.

I lived in India, and all they do is post cute things. In war-torn Kosovo, all they do is post cute things. In South Korea, all they do it post cute things. In Kazakhstan, the camel herding nomads just post cute things. In Syria, they post pictures of their cute poodles. When life is excruciating and hard, sometimes all you have left are the small, simple things in life, like a puff ball on a pencil, or the morning light shining through the window. It's those small, happy things that are the only thing left. If this guy wants to sing about the privileged, why doesn't he sing about white women living in mansions hoarding toilet paper or something?Ryan TalleyUur geledenHe's already done songs like that. Listen to "Repeat stuff" and "Country song". This song's meant to show that even people who try to show on social media that their life is perfect are still going through some real stuff, and have the same problems as everyone else. The problem's not what the song's about, the problem's your misunderstanding of what the song's about.because whyUur geledenSomebody doesn’t understand satirePavs5557 uur geledenYou missed the main point of the song - he addresses all that with the dead parents partStuie Crosby9 uur geledenYeah!!Just Me Gaming15 uur geleden"You shall not pass" -Martin Luther King JrP.D.

Shows the depth of someone who otherwise posts “basic” content. That behind the latte art, there’s still a feeling person who has experienced true grief and deep heartache, wishing she could share her life and updates with her mom. Tears, immediately, out of nowhere. So well done, Bo.Amy Grace17 uur geleden3:19 = when I start crying harder than I did at my own sister’s weddingDarling202119 uur geledenAs a white middle aged woman, he is right. Instagram has been ruined! I’ve seen many of my friends go down the vapid rabbit hole as he highlighted. The only thing he missed was all of the ones trying to sell you their crap or get you to join their multi level marketing schemes. The pandemic made me hate social media. It’s been close to a year since I’ve been on it, and I have genuinely fun things to share with my parents and relatives about my kids and life. Every time I almost push send, I feel like it’s bragging, so I hit delete instead. I wish I wouldn’t have allowed so many people to follow me on that app. I’d love to go back to it just being my family and closest friends.Weary Apparition20 uur geleden"What about second breakfast?" - Dr. Reverend Martin Luther Kang Jr. the 3rdZani Visser21 uur geledenInteresting photo ideas ..i might try🤣🤣🤣edgelord21 uur geledensaw Inside in a theatre with my mom about four months after both her parents died, and the aspect ratio change absolutely broke her. good job Bo you made my mom cry.kana22 uur geledenshowed this to my mentor and she fucking died at the goat cheese saladMeihelani Itaaehau22 uur geledenI literally just looked at the rain and thanked God for this man.hairap23 uur geledenStarted figuring out Bo's style with this song. It really helps to listen to it without the visuals, it seems those might be constructed as a later layer for more simple entertainment. Bo constructs the song with layers and as a journey. It starts with the song name, first evoking cynicism and eye rolling at our preconceived understanding of what "white woman's instagram" means. Shallow, self-absorbed, plastic, fake, entitled, privileged, sheltered, narcissistic, cliché, unoriginal. We enter the song irritated at the caricature and looking to bash and judge them, lets go! The first verses give us what we expect, evoking the a lot of descriptive images that we associate with the copy-paste Instagram influencer-type posts that try to paint perfect pictures of idealistic life. But as it goes on, we connect with at least some of it. After all, who doesn't like fresh fallen snow or a golden retriever. The chorus kicks in and reminds you what the song is supposed to be about though, snap out of it, it's a "white woman's Instagram!" Then more shallow simple examples, some jokes (get all the kids with the MLK-LOTR joke). Chorus again to really reinforce that beginning mindset again - hey we're dealing with all all those adjectives described earlier. Then he hits you with the turn, the music and vocals change to reveal a whole new story. It's about a woman who lost their mom, is struggling, misses their mom, is coping though and making it through life and succeeding, they even have a home and a boyfriend. Then he slips in a second deep cut asking the mom to "give a kiss to dad", meaning their dad is also dead and the "white woman" is an orphan...But back to descriptions of shallow instagram posts. But we're meant to see them with new eyes now. Scrubbed away are the cynical lenses we were judging this woman before, we've emotionally connected with the story of a woman who has overcome indescribable hardship to succeed in life. Bo almost immediately slyly slips in the verse "3 little words, a couple of doves". He's not describing instagram posts, he's humanizing the subject more, making them more real, she is even getting engaged to someone she loves in the next verse! But then he immediately brings back the chorus, but it's no longer a jaded and cynical call-to-judgment of the subject. We're burdened with empathy and knowledge now that this isn't a simple caricature of the vapid Instagram posts we associate this story with. Maybe other similar Instagram posts come from similarly complex and empathy-deserving people. We're left uncertain and self-reflective because we're being forced to reconcile how we're feeling now vs at the beginning of the song. Brilliant. It teaches empathy and seems to recommend that we shouldn't just judge every story with the most pessimistic of eyes.

Tinuviel was dancing there To music of a pipe unseen, And light of stars was in her hair, And in her raiment glimmering. There Beren came from mountains cold, And lost he wandered under leaves, And where the Elven-river rolled. He walked along and sorrowing. He peered between the hemlock-leaves And saw in wonder flowers of gold Upon her mantle and her sleeves, And her hair like shadow following. Enchantment healed his weary feet That over hills were doomed to roam; And forth he hastened, strong and fleet, And grasped at moonbeams glistening. Through woven woods in Elvenhome She lightly fled on dancing feet, And left him lonely still to roam In the silent forest listening. He heard there oft the flying sound Of feet as light as linden-leaves, Or music welling underground, In hidden hollows quavering. Now withered lay the hemlock-sheaves, And one by one with sighing sound Whispering fell the beechen leaves In the wintry woodland wavering. He sought her ever, wandering far Where leaves of years were thickly strewn, By light of moon and ray of star In frosty heavens shivering. Her mantle glinted in the moon, As on a hill-top high and far She danced, and at her feet was strewn A mist of silver quivering. When winter passed, she came again, And her song released the sudden spring, Like rising lark, and falling rain, And melting water bubbling. He saw the elven-flowers spring About her feet, and healed again He longed by her to dance and sing Upon the grass untroubling. Again she fled, but swift he came. Tinuviel! Tinuviel! He called her by her elvish name; And there she halted listening. One moment stood she, and a spell His voice laid on her: Beren came, And doom fell on Tinuviel That in his arms lay glistening. As Beren looked into her eyes Within the shadows of her hair, The trembling starlight of the skies He saw there mirrored shimmering. Tinuviel the elven-fair, Immortal maiden elven-wise, About him cast her shadowy hair And arms like silver glimmering. Long was the way that fate them bore, O'er stony mountains cold and grey, Through halls of iron and darkling door, And woods of nightshade morrowless. The Sundering Seas between them lay, And yet at last they met once more, And long ago they passed away In the forest singing sorrowless.” Martin Luther King Jr.PeterDag geleden“The beacons are lit Gondor calls for aid” Martin Luther KingnopewashereDag geledenWhenever I start to panic, I listen to this and feel better:)DatsSooRavennDag geledenOk but this song is HARDspeedyyyyyyfastDag geledentik tok loves everything this man doesliv mDag geledendid I just see bo burnham's assliv mDag geledendid I just see bo burnham's assGr8er_Than_8 !Dag geleden😭😭😭 so good 😭Renney PollardDag geledeni think hes just making sad songs to make us feel what he is feelingBackPocket BiologyDag geledenI love the "Beyonce is my spirit animal" mug detail 😂Fedico7000Dag geledenThere is something so primarily unsettling about almost all of these shots. ...especially the "hands half in the sleeve" ones.Misha BeanDag geledenJust back from seeing "Inside" at the theatre.
