When someone complains, quite often on social media, about something that they are lucky to have. The humblebrag also includes buzzwords, so as to truly "explain the conundrum".
"Filming on set is a complete test of patience! You know your in Hollywood when you have to cut every other second for a helicopter or an ambulance!" (a legitimate humblebrag that was found on Facebook)

When you use a small complaint to really flatter yourself with major compliments
Gloria: "I was trying to save a drowning child but my GIANT boobs are just so huge that they fall out of my bathing suit and got in the way of my life saving efforts."

Me: "Poor baby! You and your GIANT boobs got in the way of saving a kid. What a great humblebrag."
