The queen of social media, Chrissy Teigen, posted an Instagram story about a snail that is just as simple, yet oddly satisfying, as you would think.
Teigen's social media posts are known to be hilarious, genuine, and carefree. She unabashedly shares glances into her life as a mommy, wife of a super star, former supermodel, and overall passionate human. Her posts are never coated with a celebrity sheen and she is relatable and real.
Her recent Instagram story about a snail was so classic Chrissy that the video got 3 million views. Check it out.
