    This Guy Perfectly Timed His Selfie And Then Found It On Google Street View

    His selfie, snapped by Google, was then uploaded to Instagram. It's like "Inception" for social media.

    Nasr Bitar from Ontario, Canada couldn’t have timed his selfie more perfectly after he was snapped on Google Street View taking it.

    After spotting the Street View car in his neighbourhood, Nasar quickly learned the pattern it was driving in around the streets.

    "When I learned the pattern I parked my car by the side of the of the main street anticipating Google Car to exit and turn. As soon as it did I snapped a picture with my phone that was already out and ready," Nasar told BuzzFeed News.

    Bitar took the picture a few months ago in front of his neighbour's house, but only found himself on Street View a couple of weeks ago.

    "I was looking for the address of my friend's house and how to get there using Google Maps when I realised they updated their street view. Then I immediately checked the intersection I was at and found myself by the side of the street taking a selfie," Bitar says.

    Naturally, Bitar uploaded his picture to Instagram. So it then became a selfie inside a screenshot inside an Instagram post. Get it?
