The selfie was invented by a drunk Aussie. Fair Dinkum.
14 years ago today, the term ‘selfie’ first appeared on the web and catapulted into pop culture. Nathan Hope, a true Aussie bloke came up with the term and delivered it in the most Aussie way possible. He was drunk and dropped it in the online forum for Triple J's afternoon show with Dr Karl.
Here's is how it landed.
‘Um, drunk at a mates 21st, I tripped over and landed lip first (with front teeth coming a very close second) on a set of steps. I had a hole about 1cm long right through my bottom lip. And sorry about the focus, it was a selfie.’
What a legend. Thanks Nathan.
This is fair dinkum. What you also better believe, is that there is more coming from the Aussies in the selfie game, when picci takes it up a notch in a month's time. If our drunk mate Nathan can pack the heat, just wait until you see what we are bringing to the table.
