We all know people write some terrible things on their LinkedIn profile. Let's be honest, you're probably connected to a few of them.

Now, the full horror of all those cringeworthy jargon and BS-filled phrases has been realised.

We knew they were bad to read on screen, put a video in which those words are read out loud by actors brings it to life in the most hilarious way possible.

"Welcome to a window into the life of me" trumpets one. "What makes Darren Hill so special?" asks another, in all seriousness.

They range from the ridiculous:

I don't call meetings 'meetings', they're 'doings'

I run towards fires

I'm not a boss. There's only one boss and that's Mr customer

To the downright bizarre:

I rebuilt the homes of the survivors of an avalanche

I'm not racist

Apparently, I look like Idris Elba

All have genuinely been written by real-life people in their LinkedIn profiles.

There really are just too many gems to choose from - and that's just from part one. Watch all three videos below.

And if you want more, the creators (production company Joseph & Joseph) have put together a collection of the worst ones in all their glory on this Tumblr.

"Perhaps that's why I'm so good at it"

"I'm probably more of a cat person myself"

"Just like Jesus Christ was a carpenter... I'm a sales executive"
