Yep, beware of the selfie.
It’s a thing, a dangerous thing – and the Russian government is stepping in to protect it’s citizens.
This year so far, over 100 Russians have been injured (some fatally) in pursuit of the perfect selfie (also a thing). It’s kind of crazy and definitely scary to hear those statistics, but so many people have been taking selfies in high-risk areas (in front of oncoming traffic, near electrical wires) that there’s a new campaign in Russia to educate citizens. Their hope is to educate people on the risks with instructional pamphlets and videos, including one tagline “A selfie could cost you your life.”
But seriously, is this selfie situation getting out of control?
