Here's hoping you don't hear your own Linkedin humblebrags and self-praise emerge from actors' mouths.

Here’s hoping you don’t hear your own Linkedin humblebrags and self-praise emerge from actors’ mouths.

I’ll admit I like Linkedin well enough, and that I use it a good bit. I post items there, and read others’ items even more. I track down friends and colleagues, and I cheer them when they have a promotion.

And yet Linkedin manages to make my eyes roll skyward at least once a week, usually due to someone’s chest-thumping.

Today, I share three videos that demonstrate I am not alone in my occasional irritation.

What the videos include are actors reading actual posts and updates from Linkedin users. It’s horrifying, and hilarious. As the creators say, “We’ve cherry-picked real quotations from the website’s millions of profile summaries and invited actors to read them out loud.”
Here are parts 1, 2, and 3. I’m guessing you can’t watch just one.

The producers are Joseph & Joseph Productions, and their own Youtube page is here.

All the featured profiles, and more, can be found on Tumblr.

Have a terrific—and hopefully not Narcissistic—weekend.
