Just a Regular Photo In The Park

What’s this?  It’s just a girl holding hands with her boyfriend that has a zombie-like complexion, out for a stroll.  Nothing out of the ordinary here, right?

HAHA NOPE IT’S A SELFIE ARM

Artists Aric Snee and Justin Crowe took a modest proposal approach to solving the issue of selfies takers coming off as alone and sad and developed this contraption.  Inspired by the rise in selfie sticks, they designed a fiberglass appendage modeled after a person’s forearm and hand, allowing the photographer to trick audiences into believing someone else took that picture and he or she isn’t just another vain asshole.  Thankfully, this is only a conceptual prototype that neither artist intends to sell.  Of course, that probably won’t stop some entrepreneuring individual to release a knockoff and unleash this terror onto the world.

  1. But seriously, when they could have chosen literally any skin tone, why did they go with “corpse”?

    Well sure, and carrying around an arm shaped selfie stick is going to help you make friends so easily. That definitely won’t be weird and extend your loneliness.

    (repeat comment, still totally applicable.)

      Also how does this help? Now your grandma is going to comment on your facebook photos to ask who the young man is in all of your photographs. If she is anything like my grandma, she is going to want to see more than his dead arm.

    I have taken the sum total of two selfies in my life, both with groups of friends. Does that make me weird? Or just old?

    And talking of grandmas, my colleague showed me a shrine her grandmother has built to her in her living room, centred round a selfie of said colleague. So maybe I’m not the weird one after all.

      I take a lot of selfies, because I text photos of myself emoting rather than emojis, because I think it’s hilarious and I like ot imagine that I have more emotional range than punctuation does. I use real emojis exclusively to sext.

        Do you know, I started analysing it and it’s nothing more than I hate having my picture taken, full stop. So it’s no better if I do it than if someone else does it!
