Even Instagram Can’t Make Celebs Look Like They’re Happy On Family Vacay

Celebrities, they’re just like us: miserable on family vacation.

If you thought vacation season was over, think again. Some people are taking advantage of the long Thanksgiving weekend to get in a little R&R (and Instagram, naturally).

We’ve all taken the vacation when the only time you venture outside is when your family literally picks up your mattress and carries you out on it like a divan. One the one hand: Roman Emperors had a sweet life. On the other: Do they really expect you to smile?

Justin Bieber, snowboarding somewhere powdery, hit us with a classic take on the “Much to think about.” while he stood on a mountain.

That's deep, dude.

I found my life when I laid it down

Meanwhile, Taylor Swift actually looks like she's trying (nerd), standing with her brother Austin on South Island, New Zealand.

Honestly, who looks happy on family vacation? I looked happy once. My personal brand is still recovering.

But perhaps the best time being had by all is by Ludacris and Kevin Hart in Abu Dhabi. Which means we have to think that one of them referenced “Pimpin All Over The World” at least five times a day.

#Family #Fun #formula1 #VacaCrew #Day1 shout out to my guy "Kevin Liles" always good running into him!!! #GoodTimes

(But even Ludacris looks somewhat befuddled while filming this video. I mean, look at that! How is that not the best Thanksgiving ever?)
