Dana Herlihey, a social media manager and a not-basic lady, started a satirical Instagram account for her friend Skellie this past fall to poke a little fun at the everyday activities of basic girls, who tend to overuse the word “literally.” Skellie is the star of the show, but Dana deserves some credit too, because she actually drags a full-sized skeleton all around town. Literally.
The adventures of Skellie the skeleton are well on their way to blowing up Instagram. She recently topped 100K followers, which pretty much puts her on Beyonce’s level. She recently tried a flat white at Starbucks, she’s hooking up on Tinder and she’s been binge watching Friends on Netflix (wait a minute… so have I. Does that mean I’m basic?).
Skellie got on the sidewalk to take a selfie, so you might want to step up your selfie game. Maybe she should invest in a selfie stick.
She makes regular trips to the spa to get her sauna on. Skellie’s all about treating yo’self and that’s alright by us.
And we can’t even with this #OOTD. Is it weird to be jealous of a skeleton?
Oh, and obviously she’s all about the pumpkin spice. Where can we find some pumpkin spice hand sanitizer? There’re a lot of germs out there and we’d rather not end up literally dead. (Sorry, Skellie.)
Skellie has a shop full of merchandise if you want a iPhone case with her latest selfie on it. Don’t hate. She won’t tolerate haters, it was one of her New Years resolutions.
And next time you say, “OMG I literally died,” think of Skellie. Because she’s the only one who can say that accurately.
(Really though, am I basic?)
