The unintentional brilliance of Conor McGregor's Instagram

Famous people being unintentionally entertaining on social media will never not be funny.

As we've learned with David Beckham and Niall Horan, certain forms of social media just don't suit everyone. Conor McGregor is no exception to that.

Possibly unbeknown to him, his Instagram is extremely endearing and also a very reliable source of daily entertainment. Thank you, Conor.


The "Candid" Dinner Snaps

Conor is fond of a candid photograph. Unfortunately, it always comes across very clearly that the photograph has been prearranged and planned to within an inch of its life. For some strange reason, Conor appears to think that dinnertime is when he's at his most candid. The camera angles are so on point, there's no way these snaps are accidentally perfect.

The Intimidating Selfies

Usually, the whole point of a selfie is to share your gorgeous face with people to make them fancy you or comment supportive messages such as "OMG STUNNING", "Wow, ride" and "Marry me!". However, our Conor goes for a more intimidating look, quite often frightening the life out of me as I scroll through my timeline.

It takes a nutsack and a fat wallet to rock all white. Know that.

Showing Off

Conor, chicken, we get it: You've got a lot of money. Our lives are shitty enough without constantly being reminded that you get paid $1m to spit a mouthful of Gatorade out the car window. It's upsetting, but also allows us to fantasise about living a life as extravagant as yours, you absolute scoundrel.

The Unapologetic Fashion Statements

You have to admire a man that wears incredibly ridiculous clothes and proudly shares them on social media. It's almost as if he's fully aware that he looks ridiculous and is doing it on purpose so us idiots will write articles like this one. Touché Conor. I've been had.

Blatant Sponsorship

It's common knowledge that famous people get an obscene amount of money to post Instagrams of certain products and give them a bit of a plug in the caption. Conor doesn't dance around the matter, essentially throwing the advertisements straight under our noses for us to deal with. Got a problem with that? He most definitely couldn't give a flip, and that has to be admired.

Unreserved Weirdness

You don't get to 5.3 million Instagram followers without keeping people entertained and Conor certainly does just that. He's not afraid to allow his inner lunatic show, which I personally enjoy more than anything else on my Instagram feed. Thank you Conor, for unreservedly being your hilarious self, and for allowing us to be involved.

Relaxing having a coffee before a great day of sparring. Preparation is going fantastic! My excitement for the circus is building.
