Did you know that July 6 was National Bikini Day? Well, it was. And if your Instagram feed was littered with even more enviable shots of “influencers” somehow doing the splits on piping hot sand while wearing a two-piece, now you know why.
Fortunately, Amy Schumer exists, and our favorite comedian took a moment to remind us that taking swimsuit pics too seriously is a fool’s game.
We are all aware that Amy Schumer is perfectly capable of taking a bangin’ swimsuit photo. Just take a gander at her April cover for InStyle Magazine.
However, Amy isn’t really about constantly offering the public a perfectly-airbrushed Instagram pic. Which is probably why she decided to celebrate National Bikini Day this year by posting a purposefully hilarious photo of herself lounging by the pool in a two-piece.
You can keep your “classy” angles, because Amy doesn’t need that shit, y’all.
(Also, if you were wanting a clear, right-down-main-street shot of Amy’s crotch, you’re welcome.)
Commenters were utterly delighted by Schumer poking fun at National Bikini Day.
And you know what? Sometimes it’s nice to be reminded that most women who wear bikinis aren’t constantly posing like delicate fawns, kneeling in a grassy meadow. From time to time, when we show extra skin, we’re also going to show the bumps and rolls that naturally occur when we’re, you know, moving like normal humans.
So, thanks for all the impeccable National Bikini Day pics out there, but, honestly? You can keep ’em.
