"Sparrow Face" Is The New Duck Face

BREAKING: Selfies will never be the same again.

1. This is duck face. It’s soooo 2012.

2. The latest selfie trend is the so-called “sparrow face.” It’s already hot in Japan.

3. To achieve the coveted “sparrow” look, open your eyes wide and part your mouth slightly, “like you’re a baby bird waiting” for a tasty worm.

4. According to Kotaku, the Japanese term for “sparrow face” is “chun-gao” (チュン顔). “Chun” refers to “chun chun” (チュンチュン), which means “chirp” or “cheep.” “Gao” (顔) means “face.” So, literally it’s “chirp face.”
