When Ellen DeGeneres took a bunch of selfies with stars during the Oscars, it seemed like an organic thing (it wasn’t). The event put selfies on a national stage. Since then, they’ve gone from something teh kids and Mark Ruffalo do– to something your parents do to be cool and oh my gawd mom like I can’t believe you just did that. Some companies have exploited the technique for self-promotion. (Samsung, I’m wagging my finger here. Billy Bush.. just.. no.)
So can we take the selfie back and make it cool again? Some hockey fans have taken the first step by taking selfies with that paragon of cool, Pierre McGuire, during the playoffs.
