Selfies are everywhere, and obviously this technological response from people elevated its state from a craze, to a routine, up to every person's media necessity. Almost everyday of our lives, we would never miss a single person resorting to this act in order to, let's say, record his/her memories--capturing his/her sumptuous lunch or dinner at a fine-dining restaurant, or taking some friends' groupie in front of Taj Majal in India, the Eiffel Tower in Paris, Roman Colosseum in Italy, Statue of Liberty at the United States of America or Christ the Redeemer statue in Sao Paolo, Brazil.
Not all selfies are taken successfully. We will not dwell into some factors that contribute to these failures but, as far as fate and timing is concerned, unlucky selfies mosty happen along with the most precious monents of our lives--which unfortunately transform into awkward moments immediately. That's so sad, right?
Well here's the deal for you. We have this collection of severly confusing selfie examples which will challenge your discernment of whether they should be considered awkward or precious, or something else. I hope that you will keep your sanity intact, or you will still believe that selfies can still be successful when you needed them most.
Norman Reedus kept his character. What a firm internalization. But of course, take into account his rare selfie with the zombies in the set, Kewl.
That "Yun! Yum!" facial expression is priceless; even though it appears as embarrassing in this selfie, it does not feel so wrong still.
You decide. By the way, it is obvious that your Hollywood celebrity Kanye West wants to be in the moment. At the back of his mind, he says: "How could you be so heartless?"
Keep right, and do not run straight away. You may miss the bull and the selfie, but your life won't be missed yet.
Here it goes.
I wonder where did this person took off some sky-high guts! The nerve!
I hope so.
My advise would be: "just love the view."
Shout! Be Proud! Take some selfie. Send it somewhere. Say goodbye and die.
Must be some order from NASA, or some alien's pressure--"Take some selfie!" in an extraterrestrial language.
I hope that this guy enables his data so he could upload this on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook. Awkwardly amazing.
