Doll Parts

This Instagram account brilliantly skewers every Basic Gay you’ve ever met. Look familiar?

We’ve just discovered our latest Internet obsession, and life may never be the same.

The LA Basics wickedly parodies those “Basic Gays” who aspire to rack up adoring Instagram followers by endlessly posting thirst-trappy selfies, opulent vacation snaps, and shameless plugs for sponsors (most of which are underwear companies.)

It’s a great, lighthearted skewering of a very particular type of gay man you’re likely to meet after midnight at The Abbey, unless, of course, it’s that particular type of gay man that people meet when they’re meeting you.

The account’s biography says it all: “Part-time model| Aspiring actor | Fashion Blogger | Gym Enthusiast.”

Take a look at some of the best bits below:
