JACKSON, Wyo. — A group of millennial men shared an inspiring moment with the world Friday by posing topless in front of a rugged Teton vista, creating the @MountainBros Instagram handle in the process.
Calling the shot “a perfect depiction of youthful spontaneity,” @MountainBros admin Bryan Dhee, 27, confessed to TGR that the shot took three hours and over 800 frames to capture.
Drawing inspiration from his ex-girlfriend’s tendency to post dozens of topless outdoor selfies during her recent trip building schools and doing ayahuasca in South America, Dhee reasoned the same trick might work for him and his friends.
“I had to get my ’Gram feed out of a rut,” Dhee said. “But it wasn’t easy — it takes a lot of time and hard work to look that care-free and in-the-moment!”
IT TAKES A LOT OF TIME AND HARD WORK TO LOOK THAT CARE-FREE AND IN-THE-MOMENT!
@MountainBros model Sam Rooney, 29, held an impromptu soiree for the crew to celebrate the sharing of their new handle, complete with fondue, wine and multiple arguments about what Instagram filter best encapsulated the majestic nuances of the shot.
“We’re really excited about @MountainBros,” Rooney blushed. “Most of all, we’re just super stoked to be inspiring men to get outside with one another!”
As of press time, the fledgeling handle had failed catastrophically, generating intense anger on social media from multiple demographics across the socio-political spectrum.
