Father John Misty: King of Instagram


THAT little blue ‘verified’ icon usually guarantees a sizeable social media following but how often does the content justify the massive number attached to the account of your favourite musician, actor, reality TV personality or rich idiot?

Weighing in at just under 40,000 instagram followers is Joshua Tillman AKA Father John Misty. Beautiful. Enigmatic. Deranged. His online presence is all of these and more. A big chunk of the posts appear to be screenshots of a computer game with depressingly bad graphics. More recently, he’s taken to promoting various brands of bottled water with his own slogans and claiming to have recorded the soundtrack for Ted 2. It’d be a waste of time trying to explain any of it so I’ll just leave you with some of his best work.

Can't believe it's finally here. So proud to have been involved. Many, many thanks to Seth, Mark and many others too numerous to name. Here's to a great opening weekend! #ted2 #june26
