Honestly, looking into this I assumed it would just be another "haha women enjoying things, so stupid" thing. While it is still an observation of a stereotype, a humorous one, it isn't as mocking as I expected. This is what the woman posts and likes to do, and he doesn't ridicule her for it, nor do I ever get the feeling that hes inciting the audience to. If only for a verse, he acknowledges, truly acknowledges, the person behind the account and her life, of course, while still in character. And while it is a bit funny in its delivery, again, I don't feel that its at the expense of her. I'm not saying this is some huge, progressive masterpiece or whatever, I just think it's interesting.
Bo is a genius. It’s so accurate.
damn bo you lookin' real cute today
I saw this in theaters tonight and my dad hadn’t seen inside yet and was laughing so hard the entire time this song was on he was probably laughing harder than any one else in the audience at this special THANK YOU BO
I enjoy his art, but ffs, turn down the pretentiousness.
Bruh.... it's called comedy and its subjective, so if you don't like it, you can go ahead and show yourself out. Just because you defend "the ladies" on a comedy video, she won't screw you dude.
If you want to self deprecate... by all means go for it, but leave the ladies alone.
I feel personally attacked and I respect that.
2.9K dislikes were from angry white women. Change my mind
2.9k downvotes from white women.
personally, i believe Mr. Burnham is secretly a white woman taking photos for her instagram.
Goat cheese salad
Be careful everyone thats not white, singing this might get you canceled
Omg the video is awesome 😂
Bo has this down to a T
@Joey Ossia wha?
When it shifted to the bit about the mum, that hit me hard for no good reason.
Maybe post lyrics or CC so more accessible?
Just go on genius dum dum
Bo is rocking that chocker so hard.

"Fly you Fools" -Malcom X who got it from Martin Luther King
As a white woman, my Insta contains literally none of those things, and I don’t know if that’s good or bad…
I went on my mom's Instagram and found almost all of these I'm not even joking
Americans obsession with avocados is real

He is neither white or a woman so WTF
@Personal Name hes just using a filter
He looks pretty white to me tbh
“I like less than half of you half as well as you like and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve” - Martin Luther King Jr.
Me, a white woman who only posted like 3 selfies with my bf with no filter or captation🤣
This is my life summed up
1:39 even the mug is a white woman’s mug.
So random, but some parts of this remind me of a John Denver song. Interesting.
Lot 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.
I’m going to save this video specifically because some of the pictures are really cool and I can use them for photography class.
Imagine getting choked up and then hearing "a goat cheese salad" right after, this is really an emotional roller coaster 😂
I think this is what Onision think's he's like lol. Great work Bo!
"All you have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to you." - Martin Luther King Jr.
As a white woman, ive never taken any of these pictures. But they're actually so beautiful I want to make it a goal. I hate myself 😊
Don't worry I will do every one of these as a latino man.
Don’t hate yourself! These photos are awesome ideas and look really cool. The point of the song is that even though you can see people with this stereotype everywhere, at the end of the day they’re people with their own problems and are just trying to enjoy life. Don’t beat yourself up over it. You’re great!!
NOT ME TAKING NOTES HAHAA but like seriously the photos were all really cute
Bo Burnham is a femboy now lets go
LEAVE THE TINY PUMPKINS OUT OF THIS BO THEY DID NOTHING TO YOU
“There may come a day when the strength of men will fail but it shall not be this day” Martin Luther King Jr.
Why is it white women's Instagram
I'm a white woman and I don't have any of the things in this song on my instagram. Am I doing it wrong? :(
@Personal Name I'll do my best 💪
You are not online chronically enough. Step it up.
Ok but can we talk about how damn LUCIOUS Bo's hair is nowadays? It's just super emphasized in this song XD
Sending this to my sister asap!
“That’s what bilbo baggins hates!” - Martin Luther King
Never in my life I have been happier I don't have insta.

seriously cutting satire. where have all the satirists gone? Gone to flowers everyone. When will they ever learn? When will they ever earn?

Ok I’m checking off all that apply to me as a white woman on Instagram….. -Snow ……. Sorry I guess I’m not like other girls 🤣🤣
"Moonlight drowns out all but the brightest stars" - Martin Luther King
The fact that in his birthday picture he makes himself 3 years younger ... :'-)
i love how he is shading Gabie Hanna
Laughed way to hard, but also he looked adorable recreating the pictures.
The people who dislike this… are white girls with Instagram
He looks like 40% cuter than any white woman while he's doing WhiteWoman(TM) shit in WhiteWoman(TM) clothes 🤣
So many IG/social media apologists. There's some rich white dudes out there that be stoked!
You really humanized this fictional woman with that letter to her dead parents.
What's wrong with this guy? 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?
This is both Comment from a person who doesn't get the point of the song And Comment from a person with extreme case of crab mentality
He'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.
Somebody doesn’t understand satire
"You shall not pass" -Martin Luther King Jr
3k white women don't approve of this commentary and observations.
I was here
What a beautiful divergence about losing her mom. 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.
3:19 = when I start crying harder than I did at my own sister’s wedding
As 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.
"What about second breakfast?" - Dr. Reverend Martin Luther Kang Jr. the 3rd
Interesting photo ideas ..i might try🤣🤣🤣
saw 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.
showed this to my mentor and she fucking died at the goat cheese salad
I literally just looked at the rain and thanked God for this man.
Started 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. Thanks for the journey Bo.
he summoned his inner white woman for this
Well I look VERY white but apparently my Instagram isn’t 😂
Definitely what you would see
Bo looks so beautiful
I am in love with your music. It' so good!! It makes me happy
A red sunrise means blood has been spilt upon this eve- Martin Luther King Jr.

“The leaves were long, the grass was green, The hemlock-umbels tall and fair, And in the glade a light was seen Of stars in shadow shimmering. 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.
