39 Photos That Exist as Proof of the Fact That You Need to Check the Background Before Snapping a Picture

All hail Paris Hilton – the alleged inventor of the selfie! Really though, it’s not sure who did the first one, but let’s think that it was the Hilton heiress back in 2006. With that being said, aren’t selfies just great? You don’t have to rely on somebody else’s camera skills (or lack of) to get a good picture and also you can do that anytime you want, without needing any extra help. As Charles-Guillaume Étienne one said, “If you want something done right, do it yourself,” and nothing can possibly go wrong if you’re the one with your finger on the button…right? Well, not quite. While you might want to document every aspect of your glorious life, sometimes taking a photo of yourself might go in a different direction of being a total disaster. Check out this list of hilarious selfie fails compiled by Bored Panda to see what we mean. From people getting caught out by mirrors they forgot were there, to folks who simply didn’t check behind them before they snapped their picture, this collection of selfie background and mirror selfies fails should serve as a funny reminder that doing something for yourself isn’t always such a good thing. Check the list of funny selfies below – hopefully, there’s isn’t one of yours!
