So here's the rundown, a Selfie is simple enough, a picture of oneself taken by oneself. But the #selfieolympics took a twist on your everyday selfie around September of last year. Since the 2014 Sochi Olympics were on there way, twitter wanted there own Olympics that your everyday selfie enthusiast could participate in.
Selfies should not be neglected! They are an art form of our generation and should be treasured by our general public, gosh darn it!
The competition was simple, someone would post a selfie of themselves doing something ridiculous and extravagant and people would try and out due one another. Of course, all via the hashtag #selfieolympics.
Things were reasonably normal. For a little while..
|Being sprawled out over doors and was common, oh, wow, so flexible.|
Okay calm down friends
Then things got weird
|I don't understand|
One of the biggest, most well known entries into the #selfieolympics was, of course, at the Olympics themselves.
Jeez, Shaun White, don't you have enough medals already? Do you really need another?
The #selfieolympics died out as soon as the Sochi Olympics were over, though, there were no real winners to this internet sensation. If your selfie went viral and was mocked by the world wide web. I'd consider yourself a winner.
