In this day and age, if you don’t know the word selfie, one might argue that you don’t have a good grasp on the English language. If you don’t have a selfie stored on your mobile device, you just might not be as hip as you may think. Capturing a selfie is a great way to capture the moment, especially if no one is around to snap the picture for you. There are even apps to make your selfie more beautiful, colorful or hilarious. However, nothing is more hilarious than these selfie fails.
1. The Animal Selfie Fail
Let’s say you’re at the zoo and you don’t want to hand your camera over to a stranger to capture the moment. Take a photo next to your favorite animal; just make sure the animal has already been fed so your head doesn’t become its next meal.
2. The Sexy Selfie Fail
Nothing ruins a sexy photo like a beer belly. Especially when it’s not yours. Even though the selfie is all about you, toss a glance behind you before snapping something you really don’t want to include in your picture.
3. The Bathroom Selfie Fail
Do you know what the problem is with bathrooms? They have mirrors. That means you might get more than you bargained for. Make sure you take a look at the entire composition so you don’t get a nasty surprise in your next selfie.
4. The Optical Illusion Selfie Fail
An optical illusion only works if it is executed properly. Whether you’re trying to pluck the sun out of the sky or hold the Eiffel Tower in your hand, it doesn’t make much of an impact if your positioning is off.
Taking the perfect selfie isn’t the easiest task in the world. You feel like you need twenty fingers, five arms and a professional photographer. Make it easier with a Bluetooth camera remote or a selfie stick and you’ll be able to set up the scene, pick a spot to look at, and take the picture with the click of a button without having to feel like your eyeballs are looking in every direction. You won’t get a sneak peek at an unwanted guest in your bathroom mirror, and you’ll be able to wow your friends with your optical illusions. Plus, your photo won’t end up all over the web on a selfie fail site!
