Tomb Raider's Lara Croft can't stop grinning and it's cracking me up

When his parents denied him a Super NES, he got mad. When they traded a prize Sega Genesis for a 2400 baud modem, he got even. Years of Internet shareware, eBay'd possessions and video game testing jobs after that, he joined Engadget. He helped found The Verge, and later served as Gizmodo's reviews editor. When he's not madly testing laptops, apps, virtual reality experiences, and whatever new gadget will supposedly change the world, he likes to kick back with some games, a good Nerf blaster, and a bottle of Tejava.

But Kelly decided to take things one step further: what if Lara had her own Instagram page that documented her travels? You can see the hilarious results at PC Gamer.
