People Are Using Toilet Paper Rolls To Take Their Pictures And We Bet You'll Try It

Remember the good old days when you would go to the bathroom and would just read the shampoo bottle if you got bored?

Times, they are a changin'.

Almost everyone brings their phones to the bathroom with them nowadays, heck many of you are probably reading this while you make some room. There are a lot of studies out there that outline just why that's a bad idea, but we're not going to get into that here (the answer is germs) so I'll spare you.

What we will get into is another internet fad that's having people upload photos of themselves. They're called Toilet Roll Selfies or Moon Selfies.

Thankfully this is a really innocent internet fad, not something we can always say, so here's how it works.

Take a roll of toilet paper and put your camera at the bottom of it, selfie mode so it's looking up. Now look down the tube.

And you don't even need to be in them.

I think everything's better with a cat personally.

Some people seem to struggle with the relatively simple "challenge". One Reddit user uploaded this gem.

She claimed it took her over 200 tries. My photo roll is 90% failed selfies, so I won't be judging.

What do you think of Moon Selfies?
