This selfie trend is breaking more than just the Internet

Selfies are important. But to increase Instagram likes, it's even more important to keep yourself updated with the latest selfie trend.

According to Distractify, this seems to be the latest trend -- but it might come with a price.

Breaking your phone to take a selfie of yourself, high-fiving yourself. 

Ever since Twitter user Seth Schneider was able to take such a picture and garnered more than 170,000 retweets, many people have been trying to do the same, breaking their phones in the process.

However Twitter user, Ralph4234 was smart enough to cushion his phone's landing by using a pillow. Why didn't anyone else think of that right!?

We advice those who wish to try this out to use a pillow to cushion the phone's fall as well, because once your phone breaks, there's no turning back.

Seth even explicitly mentioned on his Twitter that he will not be responsible for any broken phones.

What do you think about this trend? Are you game?
