#BrosBeingBasic Shows Just How Fun Being Shamelessly Basic Is

So gloriously basic.

It's a glorious time to be basic. The pumpkin spice lattes are blooming, Taylor Swift's album is finally getting the credit it deserves, and we're already thinking of what Halloween costumes to coordinate with our squad. We'll probably be cats because we look hella cute with whiskers. We also heard the taco emoji is finally here, so we're too busy rejoicing to notice when people mock our basicness. Let them watch. Let them weep.

A bunch of bros in the Instagram Instaverse have been dipping into the deep, wonderful well of basicness we've been drinking from for years, and they're not turning back anytime soon. @BrosBeingBasic has been posting photos of dudes parodying the poses that are ubiquitous to "basic" girls, but we can't help wondering how many have been converted to the glorious world of shameless basicness through it. Sure they're trying to make fun of us, but we bet they can't deny they enjoyed those yoga stretches and bottles of rosé.
