“The Perfect Summer Day Vs. What Really Happens” From Soren & Jolles Hilariously Shows What Summer Is Actually Like — VIDEO

Confession: I kind of hate the summer. It's hot. Everything is full of sweat. Everyone is irritable. I can't wear my favorite sweater without risking death by overheating. It's awful. But at least I have a realistic idea of what summer is typically like (for me, at least) — because as comedy due Soren and Jolles' latest video demonstrates, the expectation and the reality of summer are two entirely different things.

Tracy Soren and Jessie Jolles regularly tackle these sorts of “what I Instagrammed versus reality” situations, because ultimately, it all comes down to this: If we can't find humor in our everyday foibles, then what the heck is even the point? We've all been there, we're all in it together, and we can all feel each other's pain, even when it comes to things as seemingly inconsequential as feeling like you never have anything to wear when it's blistering hot out.

Appropriately titled “The Perfect Summer Day Vs. What Really Happens,” Soren and Jolles' latest collaboration for Pixable takes on what so many of us often hope the summer holds in comparison with what it actually holds — and it is, of course, hilarious. But even though it all looks kind of nightmarish, the main takeaway is actually this: Even if your day, season, or year isn't perfect, there's still plenty of fun to be had. We live in a messy world, so we may as well give ourselves permission to be messy, too. Perfection isn't everything, after all.

1. Your Wardrobe

Expectation:

You spend the entire summer clad in the most delightful sundresses and gorgeous sandals, pairing it all with a perfectly applied red lip.

Reality:

You spend the entire summer wearing whatever you have that isn't soaked in sweat from the day before. Whatever. It's too dang hot for this.

2. Your Weekend Activities

Expectation:

Your weekends are filled with beautiful, well-planned picnics where you and your fabulous, amazing friends catch up and reminisce about life over perfectly-chilled champagne that somehow never goes flat, even when you serve it in flat glasses instead of flutes.

Reality:

Your weekends are filled with last-minute “picnics” where you and your friends moan about how gross the weather is over whatever you were able to scrounge up from the bodega down the block. Also, someone will accidentally cause a bag of chips to explode while trying to open them.

3. Your Selfies

Expecation:

Your selfies always look like this.

Reality:

Your selfies always look like this.

4. Your Summer Fling

Expectation:

Your summer fling starts with an adorable meet-cute at the park, proceeds along a “what a magical day!” trajectory, and ends with a sunset kiss. Swoon!

Reality:

Your summer fling starts with a moment of confusion, proceeds along a “what a perplexing yet still somehow enjoyable day” trajectory, and ends with a lack of closure. Sigh.
