Fact – not everything you see on Instagram is actually true. Many people these days try to convince others how amazing their life is by spending hours trying to choose the prettiest filter, the best angle and get as many likes as possible. And this Instagram account, called You Did Not Sleep There, makes fun of them.

It was started in 2015 by Luisa Jeffery from Portland, Oregon, who then went on a trip to the Grand Canyon with her friends. One of them suggested to set up a tent just to take a picture for one outdoor retailer. Jeffery was surprised to learn that people did it all the time just for pictures and that it was actually “a thing." Once back home, she was inspired to start an Instagram account to point out the ridiculousness of this campers’ trend.

However, Jeffery perfectly understands that there might actually be some people who did sleep in those locations and not everything is staged. “But it’s not about being wrong or right at all, it’s just about calling out clichés and making people laugh. I have never taken this that seriously,” the author told National Geographic.

That's just a cool, long exposure pic. And they probably did sleep there. Snow campers are weird.
