A parody "Hipster Barbie" Instagram account has sparked a lot of buzz on the Internet while mocking users who like to chronicle their exotic travels and"authentic" lives on social media.

The tongue-in-cheek account, belonging to SocalityBarbie, shows America's favorite doll at the beach, hiking, and taking in the outdoors and all places the rest of us wish we were. The account now has more than 793,000 followers.



"You know that one friend on Instagram who is always making you feel kind of bad that you just sat home and watched Netflix all weekend? Well, even they are no match for Hipster Barbie," wrote BuzzFeed's Stephanie McNeal.

"The hilarious Instagram is a not-so-subtle dig at travel bloggers who love to preach about living an 'authentic' life through staged, outdoorsy glamour shots," said McNeal.

TMZ said the Instagram account was the perfect site for everyone who has endured the accounts filled with what it called staged "authentic" shots.

"Instagram is full of hipsters whose carefully cultivated 'authentic' photo feeds are in need of a good mocking ... Enter @SocalityBarbie," said TMZ. "The parody account recreates all of the images you've come to expect from IG's cool crowd ... and then places a mass-produced doll in them as the star."

The account appeared to have struck a chord with many on Twitter.
