"Patrick Star Checks His Instaclam" is a SpongeBob SquarePants Social Media short. In this short, Patrick checks his Instaclam.



In the beginning of the short, Patrick scrolls through his Instaclam feed on a tablet. When he sees his friends on it, he believes that they are really in it, and when he sees a picture of a Triple Gooberberry Sunrise, he thinks it is real, so he attempts to eat it, but afterwards finds out it tastes weird.

In the end of the short, he takes a photo of himself.



  • At the end of the short, the Patrick face meme from The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie is used.
  • This is the only social media short themed around Patrick.
  • In this short, the following episodes are referenced:
    • "Bubblestand:" Patrick calls the elephant in SpongeBob's status update (I ❤ 🐘) a giraffe.
    • "Band Geeks:" Patrick sees an ad for mayonnaise and calls it an instrument again.

Cultural references

  • Instaclam is a parody of the real-life social networking site Instagram.
  • The Gary scene is a clip of another Nick.com video, which is a reference to the popular internet meme "Nyan Cat."


  • At the start of the short, Patrick is a much darker shade of pink, but when it shows him checking Instaclam, he is a much lighter shade of pink.
