Woman Caught Using Her Boyfriend As A Tripod To Take Selfie

In an attempt to take the perfect selfie, one woman was caught using her boyfriend's arm just like a camera tripod to catch her best angles.

The shameless moment was all caught on camera by another tourist in Prague, Czech Republic, who had stumbled across the couple taking a few snaps in front of The John Lennon Wall in the city.

As she poses against the bold background, the unknown woman, who appears to be in her twenties, moves her boyfriend's arm around as he holds the camera phone in his hand at various angles.

The woman tries out all the poses you could think of, from fake crying to laughter, as well as a good old pout to a classic smile, and her boyfriend does not seem too bothered about helping her get the perfect pic for her 'gram.

Tim Bretten, 23, from Darwin in Australia, was visiting Prague when he discovered the couple in front of the heavily graffitied, brightly coloured wall, and couldn't believe what he was witnessing.

According to Tim, who is a manager, the girl posed for selfies for at least five minutes, and he decided to capture the moments on his own camera, as he found the whole thing hilarious.

"I thought it was hilarious. Me and my friends always get a kick out of girlfriends using their boyfriends to take photos of them and this just took it to a whole new level," explained Tim. "I thought it was very entertaining.

Tim recalled no other tourists batting an eyelid at the couple, which he also found pretty surprising.

He continued: "There was no one else laughing or filming which I was quite surprised about. Even people right beside them were oblivious to what was going on."

"I've seen plenty of boyfriend photographers but never a boyfriend tripod and camera stand," quipped Tim.

It seems like our addiction with selfies is getting out of control as researchers at Nottingham Trent University and Thiagarajar School of Management in India discovered claimed that 'Selfitis' actually exists.

While critics have said that the condition 'doesn't exist and shouldn't exist', the researchers in the study claimed that selfie addiction could be graded on a scale, from borderline to chronic.
