Need a good laugh this morning? Check out the very funny faux documentary below entitled, "@thexavius: Portrait of an Instagram Artist."

We like Instagram as much as the next person but this video does a good job of sending up those out there who try to add too much meaning to their little app-addled phone snaps.

Here are a couple of choice quotes from the man himself, Instagram photographer xavius:

"What people don't understand about Instagram is that it has democratized the process of creating of beautiful images now. It used to be just people who know how to use cameras. And now with Instagram you take a picture of anything and you can make it look like it was taken with an old Russian camera."

"I want people to look at my artwork and see that the little things in life that people say 'Hey, that's stupid,' and take a look at again and say 'Hey it's not so stupid now that it has that filter on it."
