  • ♪ (dubstep) ♪

  • When Jason was at the table

  • ♪ I kept on seeing him look at me while he was with that other girl

  • Pretty girls!

  • Do you think he was just doing that to make me jealous? ♪

  • Because he was totally texting me all night last night

  • and I don't know if it's a booty call or not. ♪

  • -♪ So... ♪ -Bitch, bitch, bitch, bitch!

  • How did that girl even get in here? ♪

  • Do you see her? ♪

  • I like the rhythm.

  • I don't think I much like what they're talking about.

  • Can we go smoke a cigarette? ♪

  • ♪ I really need one. ♪

  • But first, let me take a selfie! ♪

  • (laughs)

  • Selfie, that's a new word.

  • Generation's self-obsessed.

  • Let me tell you something! ♪

  • Oh! I recognize him. Beach Coma.

  • Can you guys help me pick a filter? ♪

  • Am I supposed to recognize these people?

  • ♪ I wanna look tan

  • Oh, shut up!

  • Well, when are they going to start dancing here?

  • Do you think I should take it down? ♪

  • Let me take another selfie. ♪

  • This selfie thing is way out of control.

  • (sighs) Oh, god.

  • Wait, pause, Jason just liked my selfie

  • What a creep

  • That's so ratchet

  • Rachet?

  • What does that word mean?

  • I thought the Valley Girl thing was over, but I guess it's not.

  • Oh no, I feel like I'm gonna throw up

  • Oh wait, never mind I'm fine

  • Let's go dance

  • -♪ Oh my god, Jason just texted me-- ♪ -Who wrote their dialogue?

  • ♪ I guess I took a good selfie

  • Just a little self-conceited, huh?

  • -♪ Selfie...selfie...selfie...selfie... ♪ -This is [iunaudible].

  • -♪ Selfie...selfie...selfie...selfie.. ♪ -Oh!

  • Wow!

  • (laughs)

  • Why?

  • It leaves you almost speechless.

  • Let me take a selfie. ♪

  • I like it.

  • So this what the great America has wrought?

  • -♪ Let me take a selfie.♪ -(laughs)

  • Is that actually a music video?

  • I didn't know what that word meant until the Academy Award.

  • What is a selfie?

  • -(Finebros) So, did you like that song? -No.

  • It wasn't a song, it was electronic music.

  • No.

  • Uh, no.

  • Let me take a selfie! Let me take a selfie!

  • Nothing musical about it.

  • It certainly would not have impressed Mozart.

  • (Finebros) What was the song about?

  • Have not a clue.

  • I don't even know!

  • Self indulgence.

  • Selfies. Taking pictures.

  • Selfies. Let's do selfies.

  • (Finebros) What is a selfie?

  • Another word for person?

  • I've read about it, I've heard about it where?

  • A selfie is a self-portrait, supposedly.

  • It's taking a picture of yourselfie!

  • Even I've gotten good with the selfie.

  • Your iPhone or your phone, and you take a picture of yourself,

  • and I don't know if you post it on your selfie page. I don't know.

  • (Finebros) And have you ever taken a selfie?

  • Actually, yes!

  • I have. (laughs)

  • Never.

  • I don't think it's for the over 50 crowd.

  • I don't do selfies, mmm-mmm.

  • Everybody else wants to take a picture of me.

  • I just don't have a cell phone.

  • I don't even have a phone that takes pictures.

  • Well, I don't have the equipment, first of all.

  • I don't have that little--what is it--an iPod?

  • Yeah, I don't have an iPod.

  • I don't seem to have the time.

  • I don't know where all these people have all this time to piss away.

  • (Finebros) When you were a teenager or college aged,

  • with the camera technology at the time,

  • would people turn the cameras around and take pictures

  • -of themselves all the time? -No.

  • I don't ever remember that.

  • Never! Unheard of.

  • Well, you'd turn it around and set it up and you could put it on a timer.

  • I don't think anybody thought about it.

  • It would be completely awkward, unable to do.

  • You took pictures of other people!

  • (Finebros) Do you think that if you had that technology

  • back then you would've taken pictures of yourself?

  • Oh, probably! We would've all done it, wouldn't we?

  • (Finebros) The other part of selfies is specifically to post it online.

  • Maybe they have a weak self esteem today

  • and they have to take photographs to assure themselves that they exist.

  • (Finebros) What do you think about people liking the concept

  • of people just wanting to see their pictures and commenting about them?

  • I think it's strange.

  • That's normal.

  • People have always had pictures of themselves.

  • Everybody wants at least 15 minutes of fame and glory.

  • Now that we've got things so immediate, it can be 15 seconds per day.

  • Can be obviously a bit dangerous.

  • Somebody's going to get a little too obsessed

  • with a girl or guy they don't know.

  • And these kids are not thinking about protecting themselves at all.

  • Then when they go to get a job, when they're in their 20s

  • and they're really proud of their college degree,

  • and they walk in and the employee says,

  • 'By the way, I was looking for you and look what I found!

  • Your little nude selfie! How clever.

  • Do we want you for us? No, no, no, no, no.'

  • (Finebros) A lot of cases, people post selfies

  • so they can get likes on their picture.

  • Do you know what that means, to get likes?

  • Wasn't that the Facebook thing?

  • Or is it on everything now?

  • That people like the pictures.

  • They think it's cute, it's fun, it's great.

  • Why would I care if a stranger likes me!

  • An invasion of privacy.

  • People are harassing me now.

  • Like me here! Like me!

  • Look at this! Go here.

  • Like me, like me.

  • You know what I say to that?

  • Delete.

  • (Finebros) Do you know what the actual act of liking a picture is?

  • -You touch it. -(Finebros) Yes.

  • Yeah.

  • -(Finebros) What-- -What, do you think I'm totally ignorant?

  • Huh? (laughs)

  • (Finebros) This has become so huge that there is now trends,

  • where people will take specific types of selfies.

  • So one of the most recent ones is called a sellotape selfie.

  • -Here is an example. -Okay. Oh, good god!

  • Oh...oh...oh...

  • (scoffs)

  • It's sort of like Jackass.

  • Look at him! Look how stupid.

  • Why would anyone want to make himself look so stupid?

  • Well, she certainly looks horrible.

  • She now has a pig's face.

  • Oink!

  • What is the purpose of that?

  • Oh god.

  • (Finebros) And more!

  • Oh [bleep].

  • Oh my goodness! Oh...

  • I like the fact that he added his phone.

  • That's very cute.

  • Who has time to sit at home and tape their face up?!

  • Oh, we can hardly wait to hire you!

  • Those are cool!

  • (Finebros) So you're down?

  • If we gave you tape, you'd put it all over your face?

  • Sure! Why not.

  • I don't think me and my friends are going to be doing that.

  • Their concept of what one should post or look like

  • is completely different than ours.

  • I try to spend all this time making myself look good!

  • It just goes to show you that we need psychiatrists.

  • (Finebros) So back to the song.

  • -The music video has over 50 million views. -Unbelievable.

  • (Finebros) And the song is even being played on the radio.

  • Do kids listen to radio anymore?
