On Sunday’s 86th Annual Academy Awards, Ellen DeGeneres took one of the most talked about selfies in history. During the Samsung-sponsored event, Ellen rallied major celebrities together to capture the picture that literally shut down Twitter. It seemed like people all over the world were making #OscarSelfie remakes with their friends and coworkers. One website, www.urturn.com, allows you to insert yourself into the selfie. Here are some of Verge Pipe Media’s favorite #OscarSelfie remakes.
When people headed back to work on Monday, many were still talking about the selfie. Countless tweets were found using the hashtag #OscarSelfie and many people around the world did their very own version. Like many news shows, Fox in Tampa Bay did their own version of the selfie.
Today, March 4th was National Pancake Day. While supporting the “holiday” and their charity, pageant girls in California stopped eating pancakes to get in on the selfie action.
Everyone knows that Grumpy Cat hates everything, including selfies. Even though he expressed his anger on Twitter, I think he was mainly feeling left out. So, he made his own rendition.
Of course we had to thrrow in some Auburn ones. AUFamily created their own version stating what it would look like if the SEC coaches took their own Oscar selfie.
Maybe Ellen got the idea of "The Best Selfie of all Time" from Cam Newton. At Auburn, we like to claim this as the original selfie.
The Simpson's even got into it. They "simpsonized" all the celebrities and you can seen Bradley Cooper is trying his hardest to keep Homer from making it into the snapshot.
Of course, here at Verge Pipe Media, this is our favorite. Don demanded that he be Ellen. Doesn't Philippe make a great Kevin Spacey?
At the time of this post, Ellen’s selfie had over 3.2 milion retweets, surpassing President Obama’s tweet for the most retweets in Twitter history. Because of the number of times Ellen DeGeneres’ tweet was retweeted, Samsung vowed to donate $3 million to charities of Ellen’s choice. She has chosen to give the money to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital and The Humane Society.
