We reported yesterday that five million videos had been uploaded on the first day of Instagram’s popular new service and this morning we have the first video to reach one million likes – posted by, of course, Justin Bieber. Who else? You can watch the video, if you’re that way inclined, here.
The video features a shirtless Bieber showing off his array of tattoos and telling his fans about all of Instagram’s new features. Bieber, who in March 2012 was the first Instagram user to hit one million followers, now, for reasons we don’t understand, has more than nine million, though nobody I’ve spoken to will admit to being one of them.
The nineteen year old Canadian star ensured the video’s place in Instagram history by giving it a boost from his Twitter account, which recently became the first to reach forty million followers, confirming that there really is no hope for the human race.
