'StarbucksDrakeHands' Definitively Proves You Should Never Send Selfies To Strangers

Posted: Updated:

Never send selfies to strangers. We repeat: NEVER SEND SELFIES TO STRANGERS. Especially not video selfies.

As you will see from the following Internet movement, if you send an embarrassing selfie to someone you meet in Starbucks, countless people across the country will see it, make fun of you and imitate you.

Here's how it all started: a girl was approached by a guy standing in line with her at Starbucks. He asked for her number. She gave it to him, and he sent her a video selfie. The video essentially consists of the guy staring into the camera, touching his face while Drake's "Hold On, We're Going Home" plays. The girl's friend put that selfie on Instagram six days ago, and the rest was history:

When that strange video starting making the rounds on Instagram, people attached the hashtag #StarbucksDrakeHands, and hundreds of videos popped up. There are over 750 public videos with that hashtag on Instagram already, and someone has created an entire Instagram account called starbucksdrakehands, devoted to the trend.
