During the MLB baseball game yesterday between the Arizona Diamondbacks and the Colorado Rockies, a cameraman spotted a group of sorority girls who were apparently more interested in snapping the perfect selfie than watching the game. The announcers for the TV broadcast took notice, and the whole thing turned into a strange case study of what Instagram has done to our culture.
Here’s the 2-minute clip of the announcers offering color commentary on selfies and technology:
“Do you have to make faces when you take selfies?” asks one commentator.
“That’s the best one of the 300 pictures of myself today!” the other quips.
The Arizona Diamondbacks were so impressed with the selfie skills that were being displayed that the team got the girls to share a group selfie on the team Instagram account:
