With nearly 58k followers on Instagram, the Truth Potato has been dropping bittersweet truth bombs about life for the past few years.
It can be hard to hear the truth sometimes. No matter how much we know it to be true or exactly what we need to hear at that particular moment in time, some things can be too harsh to swallow unless given by someone who's fit for the task. While close friends and loved ones usually take on this job, there's one wise little spud who's made it its mission to break your shield of denial. With nearly 58k followers on Instagram, the Truth Potato has been dropping bittersweet truth bombs about life for the past few years.
The brainchild of Indian artist Harsh Gopal, the Truth Potato doesn't beat around the bush when it comes to delivering its message. Speaking to Stoned Santa about his comic creation came to be, Gopal said: "After a long day, I was sipping tea and crunching [on] some fries. Few fries down, and a thought struck my mind, 'How do most of the world love anything related to potato? How would it be if a character in the form of a potato advised people about life?' One quick Google search later, I realized that no similar character existed. Thus, the Truth potato was born."
"I seek inspiration from anywhere and everywhere. If you look around, there are thousands of inspirational quotes out there, but not many take them seriously. The whole idea was to put forth these truths and advises that people wouldn’t accept otherwise," he added.
