January Jones is clearly no stranger to weird—yet amazing—selfies, so it comes as no surprise that the actress’ latest string of posts on Instagram were inspired by funnyman Ricky Gervais. The 37-year-old actress shared three photos of herself in the bathtub, showcasing her fantastic sense of humor.

The first image was of Jones seemingly asleep in the tub, her blonde locks falling beautifully (as usual) over her face, with the caption, “I was inspired by @rickygervais to do a bathtub series, I’m calling it ‘a bathtub series not by Ricky Gervais but by me.’ This one is called ‘fake sleeping in a tub without a cat [sic].’” She also added the hashtag, “Got off work too early today,” although nobody is complaining!

The pic received over 9,800 likes with fans praising Jones’ selfie-savviness. One fan even expressed her shock at Jones’ age, writing, “So I read your age somewhere the other day and I was flabbergasted, you’ve got great genes darling!”


Just an hour later, Jones posted the second selfie, and it was quite a contrast from the previous one. In this second one, her face was halfway submerged under the water with a rather awkward side-stare expression. The description read, “2nd one in the series titled: ‘How far under I could get without dropping my phone in the tub or on my face..sans cat [sic].’” Receiving just over 7,100 likes, Jones’ fans again praised her beauty and funny bone, like one commenter who wrote, “Lmaooo!!! I was just thinking don’t drop that phone playing in the tub [sic].”

Jones’ final photo in the series was an expression of mild horror, presumably caused by “looking at a picture of Ricky Gervais and his cat,” which is what she titled this photo. But it was her hashtag, “Sorry if I’m getting too heavy for some of you non-art people,” that stole the show. Jones’ followers echoed her sentiments with statements such as, “That hashtag tho [sic],” and, “You’re winning Instagram right now haha.”

Jones’ “bathtub series” is seriously almost as good as Gervais’, although the man has been at it for a long time now. His Instagram profile displays regular updates of him in the bathtub, wishing followers a “Happy Sunday” alongside ridiculously funny jokes, such as “Man gave birth to himself!”
