Japanese Selfie Trend Will Leave You Shaking Your Head

It seems like there's always a new photo trend, doesn't it? Some are big. Some are small. Well, this one could have you shaking your head. Literally.

Earlier this week, head-shaking photos were uploaded to bulletin board Viper 2ch, with the original uploader writing, "You're able to forget your troubles hahahahahaha."

In Japanese, this is called "atama furinagara shashin toru no" (頭振りながら写真撮るの) or, wait for it, "shaking your head while taking a photo." Clever, huh?

Other net users found the selfies amusing, writing things like, "Honestly, I laughed" or "Scary" or "So unflattering haha."

"This is a lot of fun," wrote the net user who posted the photo below.

Granted, this kind of thing isn't brand new (heck, anyone who's taken a photo has probably done this). In Japan, there are selfies of teens from late last year shaking their heads as well as earlier this month.

However, the recent Viper 2ch thread is being widely circulated on Japanese blogs and websites. This trend could certainly catch on in a much bigger way. Or it could vanish into internet ether. Who knows.

Be warned that some Twitter users say that, while fun, head-shaker selfies can lead to headaches!

    Fixt

    You make make this a million times worse by doing it at night, using a decent camera with a flash and fast shutter speed. Hold the camera against your chest, facing straight up. Look down, completely relax your facial muscles, and then shake your head vigorously and take the shot.

    No motion blur, no control, no mercy. Congratulations, you've now taken the worst possible photo of yourself. It's all uphill from there.
