10+ Times People Just Failed So Hard While Taking A Selfie

Taking a selfie is not always as easy as it sounds. I should know because I always feel awkward taking them myself.

But perhaps some people should think twice before they take one and post it for the world to see. The following pics are complete proof it's not everyone's cup of tea.

1. Not all people have their selfie game on lock because dropping the phone like this is just not cool.

Twitter

How do I unsee this? My eyes, my eyes!

2. That time you ran into Lauren Mayberry from CHVRCHES and you took the worst selfie of your entire life.

Can this get any more blurry? I feel bad.

3. I'm not one to judge parents, but somehow I don't think this is setting a good example for your kids.

Twitter

Next time, rethink your clothes or lack thereof before you pose.

4. Okay, technically not a person but this Akita pooch wanted to play the selfie game and ended up failing miserably.

He needs lessons from his humans, I see.

5. This is one sy selfie if I ever saw one.

Twitter

I wonder if she knew what was actually happening behind her or if this was just a lucky coincidence.

6. Just a tip for those selfie novices out there. When you take those pics, try not to look like a serial killer in the making.

Twitter

You're welcome.

7. I don't understand what kind of person would take a selfie while sitting on the toilet, but maybe that's just me.

Twitter

Is this attractive to you? Hmm.

Load Comments

8. And again, you pick a public bathroom that looks like this to take a selfie in?

Twitter

What is wrong with you? At least pick a luxurious one. Wow.

9. If you absolutely must take a selfie in your bathroom, just do us a favor and actually flush the toilet.

Twitter

Nobody needs to see that! Please!

10. Next time you try to take a selfie with a wild animal like a camel or a giraffe, just remember this hilarious picture.

Twitter

I dunno if she was laughing.

11. Ladies, remember to make sure you hide all your unusual personal belongings, okay?

Twitter

Nobody wants to see your, uh, personal toys. OMG, what a complete facepalm scenario. Geez!

12. So we shouldn't just blame dogs for ruining our selfies because cats can be jerks, too.

Reddit | megacorn

Looks like her pretty stubborn cat is giving her some trouble here.

13. Hmm, because you always wanted to remember that you can eat a banana and take a selfie at the same time like a champ.

14. Next time you try to do a selfie, make sure the camera doesn't totally obscure your entire face!!!

Reddit | blynch007

I mean, what's the point of even doing a selfie then?

Load Comments

15. Why? I ask why is this a thing? I will never understand why some people take a selfie in the bathroom while they have their pants down!

Imgur

Dude, no!

16. I guess this is what happens when you get bored, huh?

Reddit | meduse_io

Otherwise, I dunno why anyone would think standing in a toilet was a great location for a selfie.

17. Dang it. Imagine casually running into Keanu Reeves, jumping on his lap to take an epic selfie only to end up with his face like this?

Reddit | AnadeArmas

I'll take it.

18. Sometimes your doggo doesn't really have his selfie game down.

Reddit | BuckeyeJen

But when you think about it, this is actually way funnier than if it was a regular picture.

Load Comments

19. I definitely don't condone this behavior.

Tumblr | tusfails

So please be careful when you play with fire, especially when you're too focused on paying attention to perfecting your selfie skills.

20. Maybe I shouldn't make fun of them because they're just kids, but if anyone should have their selfie game on point it should be them.

Reddit | rose_13_person

No? Maybe not.

21. Um, I guess this girl forgot to double check that selfie because this is not the photobomb you want to post to the entire world.

Stupid Self Shots

Or is it?

Load Comments

22. Yeah, if by your boyfriend, you mean your hand. LOL!

Imgur

Make sure you check your reflection before you post that picture your "boyfriend" took of you. Wink wink.

Load Comments

23. Because taking a selfie is the perfect time for grandma to photobomb you, right?

Pinterest

Like, really? This is what you want everyone to see you doing on Saturday night?

Load Comments

24. Speaking of grandma, see what you did there?

Pinterest

You totally got grandma hooked on selfies and now you better be prepared for her to send these to you. Told you so!

Load Comments

25. I dunno about you, but I think this isn't the right time to be taking a selfie, bro.

Pinterest

Aren't you supposed to be doing something? Like fighting a fire?

Pinterest

Okay, okay this isn't necessary. We've all got an imagination, man. Just put your shirt back on, please. LOL!

27. Late-night online shopping, anyone?

30. Wow, talk about weird timing here.

Pinterest

I guess we should consider ourselves lucky she didn't take a selfie at the actual funeral. Or did she? I hope not.

Load Comments

31. I guess somebody forgot to clean their house before embarking on taking a sexy selfie.

Pinterest

Perhaps she didn't think the camera angle would catch all of that. LOL!

Load Comments

Wow, and here I thought my selfie attempts were sometimes pitiful. But no, they are not even close to these.

Giphy

I don't think I'll ever look at a selfie pic the same way again.
