As humans evolve, so too do our selfies. The strongest selfie-takers survive; the weakest do not.

Take the case of bikini selfie girl. Back in October, a video of a woman attempting an awkward selfie went viral. Shortly thereafter, YouTube user TacoBurritoLegend added nature-documentary-style narration to it, likening Bikini Selfie Lady to a chimp recognizing its reflection. This is selfie recognition, and it is the next step in evolution.

Did we all just have a moment of selfie recognition? Time to go check our email another 22 times before bed.
