Girl Wastes A Whole Minute Trying To Take The Perfect Selfie (Video)


A teenager spent a whole minute of her life trying to snap the perfect selfie – and you can waste a whole minute of yours, by watching her trying to snap the perfect selfie!

Yes, this is what we've been reduced to! Fun, isn't it?

The unidentified girl was filmed striking a variety of poses in her bid for perfection.

Over the next 60 seconds the selfie-taker tries pouting, holding the phone close-up and at arm's length, and finally flailing backwards while she appears to aim for a good shot of her bikini-clad behind.

The film-maker says: "Seriously this chick has been doing this so long I was able to grab my phone take a couple pictures. Now this video of this ridiculousness."

The irony of the video – which has gone viral on You Tube, attracting more than 2 million views, wasn't lost on one writer at The Huffington Post, who remarked that 'we watch the video that she made of herself wasting a minute of her life watching someone else take photos of herself'.

Very true. But it's a very entertaining accompaniment to a nice cup of tea.
