This Ridiculous New Selfie Trend Has Got People Throwing Their Phones In The Air

    This is the hardest selfie you'll take today.

    This guy high-fived himself while his phone was in mid-air.

    Today is the proudest day of my life. I successfully took a picture of me high fiving myself

    He's had 166,000 RTs at the time of writing, as a result.

    And now he's got people people trying to do the same.

    @TOSUBUCK you inspired me to do the unthinkable

    It wasn't long before people switched it up.

    OMG I SUCCESSFULLY TOOK A PIC WHILE DABBING

    Where yo bitches at I managed to dab and high five myself and take pictures, I am the future

    This is the most amazing thing I have ever done

    @GualaGabe @javorus_moore @I_theGiovanni good?

    We tried to give it a go ourselves and it was a lot harder than expected. On the plus side: No one broke their phone in the process.
