Taylor Lautner Joins Instagram (VIDEO)
Taylor Lautner has officially joined Instagram! Check out the video below!
Lautner made his debut on the social media site on Tuesday with the profile photo seen at right. He’s using (what else?) “@taylorlautner” as his handle. And his bio notes, “Better late than never!” Indeed, he already has more than 400,000 followers.
The actor’s first post is a video, and it features two unexpected faces. In the clip, Lautner enlists Adam Sandler and David Spade to test some ideas for his big Instagram launch. The joke is that the funny video of him trying out different things, including a backflip and dabbing, is really the first post.
But how did Lautner convince Spade to cameo? “I’ll give you Taylor Swift’s cell phone number,” Lautner tells him in the footage. Of course, Lautner famously dated Swift a few years back.
The movie star writes in the video’s caption, “Hello Instagram! It only took me until the year 2016 to finally join, sorry I’m so late to the party haha. Huge thank you to my buds @adamsandler and @davidspade for helping me introduce my page.”
The longtime collaborators became friends with the young star after working together on the Netflix film, The Ridiculous 6. For the record, Lautner still isn’t active on Twitter, but perhaps the video is a taste of things to come on Instagram. Watch below!
