When it comes to influencers, some of the settings which are staged for that perfect shot look absolutely effortless. Too effortless, tbh… suspiciously effortless…
An absolutely gas video has been posted online by @TaylorLorenz which sheds light on the environmental factors which influencers endure.
Whether it's freezing cold weather, sunlight blazing in your eyes or just awkward angles, getting the perfect shot isn't as easy as it looks.
The video displays several influencers and bloggers jostling to take the perfect picture at an intersection in New York, 59th and 5th avenue;

They're working hard, to be fair; they've all gotta compete for the best image possible.
Apparently 59th and 5th is some kind of blogger hotspot, an aesthetically pleasing location which influencers have now plagued.
Some witty Twitter users have compared the video to a favourite dystopian show…
That reminds me, when is the new series of Black Mirror out?

It is pretty reminiscent of THAT Bryce Dallas Howard episode, where everyone can rate each other and give points based on their image and personality, similar enough to Instagram.
Whether you find the video disturbing, hilarious, mediocre or just plain creepy, it says a lot about how different today's social media world is.
We are hugely entertained by the reaction tweets though… keep 'em coming.
