Sometimes, I get dragged down a rabbit hole with short films on Instagram. It’s been a bit of a challenging time these past few months and getting sucked into feelgood clips on Instagram has really helped lift my mood on several occasions. I’ve collected a few that have made me smile or laugh here…
Running in style:
About true love:
My son has done the following as well in the past, holding our beige cat Effoh up like Simba to show him off, singing “Aaaaah Zabenya….” (video will open in Instagram when you click on it):
And this is totally my daughter, with that exact same attitude, finding our black cat:
I love the clever plotting by this young woman and I love her partner’s reaction:
Speaking of clever, I adore this protest to a ‘no laptop’ rule in class:
It’s been a while since I’ve taken a German train, but I can still relate to this, especially since my brother got stuck in Germany on a Sunday almost two weeks ago due to a similar situation. We ended up picking him up as we were in the neighbourhood and crammed him into our already full car.
Real life problems when trying to communicate only online. Misunderstandings happen so easily:
Keanu Reeves does have a bit of a point here:
It’s almost the same calibre as this reply he once gave to Stephen Colbert, which is pure genius:
How to not cook spaghetti:
Yes, the following can really make me (as a wife) laugh as well!
Ah, a woman and her dog. Priorities, right?
I even discovered a few female comedians that I’d never heard of before. This “I’m an Empath” bit by Jackie Kashian really rung true for me.
Michelle Wolf seems quite well known but I’d never heard of her before. She apparently has a show up on Netflix and has even once done the White House correspondents dinner during the Trump years which apparently caused a lot of backlash that I had missed. I liked several of her videos but they won’t embed here, so here’s a video off YouTube on envying giraffes…
Or this little clip (taken off Twitter) of portraying historical women as millennials..
I also came across this comedian called Lau Ramoso in Canada, who is the daughter of a German mother and an Italian father. She’s starting out as a comedian and I really like this kind of cultural humour. I especially love her German mother videos. Here’s a video she did of her German mother taking her shopping (check out her other German mother videos on her page as well!):.
And a video of her Italian dad watching football:
Social media can really suck but it can sometimes also be a real mood lifter.
