I Don’t Want To Live On This Planet Anymore: Bridal Selfie Sticks Are Now A Thing

Reem Acra Bridal Fall/Winter 2016 Runway Show

Selfie sticks… you either hate them or love them. Considering their popularity, we suspect we’re the ones being snobbish about a product the marketplace is clearly clamouring for… but there’s just something so freaking irritating about them. Maybe it’s their intrinsic narcissistic quality, the fact that they’re built specifically for taking better pictures of yourself. Maybe you just look like a tool holding one. Whatever the reason, we can’t help but shake our heads when reading about the Bridal Selfie Stick, pictured above. Because yeah, it totally makes sense that you’d be walking down the aisle with a bedazzled selfie stick pointed at your face. Yeah, no, it’s not like you’re supposed to be excited about joining your life to that of another person, right? It’s much more important that the world knows how you looked while doing so.

Cultural criticism aside, there’s a glimmer of hope in the fact that these don’t seem to be available for purchase just yet. They were spotted at bridal-and-evening-wear-designer Reem Acra’s fashion show recently, and there’s no word that they’ll ever make it to market. But of course, once an idea is out…

Because Why Not: General Mills Is Giving Away A Selfie Spoon

Who hasn’t had a hearty bowl of cereal and thought “Gee, I sure wish I could take a selfie with this spoon, right now.”? Someone at General Mills has, this much we’re sure of, because it seems the company is giving away a selfie stick spoon as a promotional item for their Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereals. It’s a legit selfie stick that extends to 30 inches, and uses Bluetooth to trigger your camera… only at the other end of it there’s a spoon. The idea, we imagine, is to make it easier to take pictures of yourself while gobbling down some of their delicious cinnamon-y cereal. They even suggest a hashtag: #selfiespoon.

The spoon itself is free to US residents (you only have to pay for shipping) but it’s currently out of stock. We’re not sure if that’s because they’re understocked, or because there’s an actual market for this. However we suspect the folks at General Mills are aware of how ridiculous this is, since one of the items on their descriptions is “Really a Thing!”. Yes… it’s really a thing.
