A “selfie” video has broken loose of YouTube and made the front page of Reddit after an unidentified cellphone videographer captured a young woman trying way too hard to capture the perfect picture.
The video — see below — runs about 75 seconds, and the entire time, the girl tries hard to capture an image of herself in a selfie for the ages.
Over the course of that runtime, the videographer delivers a rather scathing narration.
At the start of the selfie video, you see the girl posing in a number of stances while trying to hold her phone just right. After about 20 seconds, the shooter chimes in.
“Seriously, this chick has been doing this for so long, I was able to grab my phone, take a couple of pictures, and now this video of ridiculousness.”
At this point, the selfie taker moves the phone below her waist.
“Oh my God, are you f***ing kidding me? She’s going to take one from down there of her a**.”
It gets pretty rough from there. Clearly, the videographer is not a fan of the selfie. But don’t take our word for it. See for yourself. Warning: NSFW.
Perds Ton Temps was the original YouTube channel that this first appeared on. They’re based out of Canada, though it wasn’t clear if the video came from the same place.
Perhaps what made this selfie video so awesome was the song at the end of it by the Goo Goo Dolls.
“And I don’t want the world to see me…”
Clearly that wasn’t the case for the young pic snapper, and now all of Reddit is blowing up over it. Located near the top of the front page at the time of this post, it has already surpassed more than 1,000 comments.
Some were SMH-ing over the girl’s determination to capture the perfect pic, but others were turned off by the videographer’s comments at the end in which she called the young lady a derogatory slur.
“I was sort of on-board with her up until ‘she’s a friggin ugly b****.’ First of all, that girl is not ugly. Second of all, what the h***? Sounds insecure. Plus, I don’t think filming this is any less creepy than if a guy was doing it, especially when you’re clearly doing it maliciously,” one commenter said.
