CollegeHumor ripped on Nickelback with their parody of “Photograph” called “Look at this Instagram,” which makes fun of the Instagram photos you want to remember and the the song you want to forget.
I’m pretty tired of people posting photos of every single mundane street sign and sidewalk smudge they see — as though putting a filter on it makes it deep and artsy. Thankfully, this song is kind of like aversion therapy. Now all your good thoughts of Instagram will be associated with Nickelback’s highly mockable song and CollegeHumor’s awesome parody.

CHARTattack.com has reported that a giant photo of Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper appeared as part of a photo montage during an Ottawa Nickelback concert back on April 11.
Apparently Nickelback’s lead singer Chad Kroeger met with the PM earlier that night at 24 Sussex Drive in Ottawa. But it was when the band took the stage at Ottawa’s Scotiabank Place that things started to get a tad more - erm – political.
According to the Ottawa Citizen, the prime minister and his son were at the concert. The paper’s review of the show talks about a photo montage of the Nickelback guys that played on a big screen behind the band as they played their hit song “Photograph.” But apparently it wasn’t just Nickelback who showed up on the screen.
As a photo on CHARTattack.com shows, a big head shot of the prime minister himself can be seen behind a tiny-in-comparisson Kroeger.
Could this be the magical work of Photoshop (props to that person) or a true aspect of the show? Did the audience applaud when our leader’s face appeared on screen? Did they cheer? Boo? Was this a special treat for the Ottawa show or a part of all Canadian dates? Perhaps even dates in the USA?
So many questions. Nickelback, we want answers.
