Made in Selfie

The internet is drowning in a sea of copycat Ellen selfies

More selfies than you could shake a camera at, to be precise.

UNLESS YOU’VE BEEN living under a rock for the past week you’ll know that Ellen DeGeneres took the world’s most famous selfie at the Oscars.

The snap went on to become Twitter’s most re-tweeted tweet of all time, and spawned a few photoshopped efforts that were mildly amusing.

Like this Marty Morrissey one for example.

Or this fantastic effort from The Simpsons.

This snap from Nicky Byrne and the gang at 2fm.

And this wonderful offering from a man who wanted to challenge Ellen’s record.

However, now it seems EVERYONE wants in on the selfie business and the Made In Chelsea cast are the latest to jump on the bandwagon.

We’ll never say no to a bit of fun, but maybe it’s time to put the phones away now, eh?

And remember: It’s only a selfie if the person in the picture is the one who’s holding the camera.

Ellen just set up the best selfie of all time…and broke Twitter>

This F-16 pilot took the ultimate selfie while firing a Sidewinder missile>
