Did you know there’s a Guinness World Record for taking the most selfies in one hour? We didn’t until this morning, but apparently increasing imagery of yourself in an already duck-face saturated world is a thing now. At least so according to Bhanu Prakash of Hyperabad.
According to the Guinness’ the record is currently held by Patrick Peterson and NBC Sports of the USA and stands at a whopping 1449. That’s 24 photographs a minute for an entire hour – an average amount for any teen in front of a bath room mirror these days.
Here’s a Vine taken during Peterson’s record breaking attempt in which we can watch a continuous 7 second clip of his soul slowly fading away.
There’s an emptiness behind those eyes.
To make matters slightly worse for humanity as a whole, this isn’t the only selfie record listed. Dwayne The Rock Johnson earlier this year managed to hold out his arm and take a photo of himself and one of his fans 105 times in 3 minutes.
Well done Dwayne. Your achievement is as impressive as the San Andreas movie you were promoting.
Bhanu Prakash has quit his job to ‘focus on’ his technique and train for the attempt which he says will take place on the 18th September 2015. We fully expect him to break it because let’s face it, it’s not that hard really and what sort of self absorbed twit would want to try?
