Historical Greats Getting In On the Selfie Trend

We’ve featured Roman statues taking selfies before but what about paintings? With the trend not making an exit anytime soon, it’s no wonder big-name companies want a piece of the action. Ad agency Leo Burnett Switzerland create a brilliant ad for the Samsung NX mini camera featuring historical artists like Vincent van Gogh, Frida Kahlo, and Albrecht Dürer’s making full use of its 3-inch flip-up screen. With a tagline “For Self-Portraits. Not Selfies,” the ad just singlehandedly elevated the selfie trend.
