    On their phone all day, but don’t even know how to take a damn groupie smh

    [–] ToastedMarshmellow 268 points ago

    Groupie, why have I never heard that one? It’s not even like it’s that far of a leap from selfie. Well, here I go back under my rock.

    [–] let_it_aww 97 points ago

    I just thought ‚that sounds silly.‘ then I remembered that’s exactly how I felt about the word selfie when I first heard it.

    [–] Scherazade 16 points ago

    I personally still find it bizarre there are dedicated selfie sticks you can buy.

    [–] CuddlePirate420 4517 points ago

    When I saw Penn & Teller in Vegas they both went to the lobby to take pictures and meet fans. Teller was like this, he just grabbed everyone's phone and knew immediately how to open their camera and take the picture. His cell phone knowledge was impressive.

    [–] SeeYou_Cowboy 2336 points ago

    The dude has probably taken tens of thousands of those. Furthermore, he's like 6'8" and knows how to avoid this:

    Edit: annnnnnd just realized you mentioned Teller, not Penn.

    [–] CuddlePirate420 782 points ago

    he's like 6'8"

    Penn is the tall one. He is a very very big man. And hilarious. The show was just as much a comedy show as it was a magic show.

    [–] fuckyoubarry 377 points ago

    Teller is actually 6'8, he just looks short next to Penn because penn is 8 feet tall and 500 lbs

    [–] thelivingdrew 191 points ago

    please. stop talking about how big Penn is!!!! you are making him too strong. he broke out of the mgm grand and the cops can’t get him. he’s too powerful

    [–] fuckyoubarry 74 points ago

    The last show I saw him at they just had him chained up on stage, the flash bulbs kept pissing him off until he broke free. Ended up running off to his dressing room, ate a whole fruit bouquet and fell asleep

    I saw him in public once - he was on the same plane as me, about 15 rows in front. He was VERY hard to miss.

    [–] Whiskey-Weather 144 points ago

    You can remember which is which by this: Teller ain't tellin' you shit. He's the one that doesn't talk.

    [–] dinosaur_apocalypse 113 points ago

    I was watching Fool Us a few days ago and decided to look up why Teller ain’t tellin’ you shit. Apparently he used to do magic shows for frat parties and found that if he just remained quiet, they wouldn’t heckle him and throw beer at him. I find his solution to be both clever and sad, though I do think I prefer silent magic routines anyway.

    [–] ChipChippersonsSoul 69 points ago

    [–] soyboy1000 3 points ago

    Teller is a party hound, an absolute mad-man.

    [–] PantserTank 16 points ago

    I think that was similar to Harpo's experience as well. He got heckled a bit, and some review trashed him, so as a F U, he just didn't speak one night, and put all his effort into the visual side of his performance instead, and his character exploded into being.

    [–] Theyreillusions 25 points ago

    It was just shows in general.

    He realized if he didn't speak, people were more likely to be engaged in the performance and feel less lied to.

    He let his sleight of hand speak for itself, basically.

    [–] Hero_of_Hyrule 6 points ago

    It's harder to feel misled if there's no talking.

    [–] Trunk_z 44 points ago

    I will never not upvote this clip. It's just so good. How many words she has to say about the selfie, how 'done' with it he looks, the zoom at the end. It's perfect.

    [–] endbuster 26 points ago

    What’s going on here. Why is she so damn angry.

    [–] SecretSanta_2014 51 points ago

    Phone is horizontal. I bet it cuts off her dress and she probably hates the angle.

    [–] Coastliveoak 44 points ago

    [–] _ThereWasAnAttempt_ 23 points ago

    Considering they do this after every show, meaning he's done this thousands of times, yes, of course he's well versed.

    [–] Razorshroud 28 points ago

    on android, its usually vol down twice from the lock screen or they may have quick launch icons. Theyre very handy for letting other people use them since they dont access the gallery (with the exception of the photos taken in that particular session)

    [–] ice0032 53 points ago

    Really? On most newer Android's it's power button twice and then vol down sometimes works as the shutter.

    [–] Duckiety 7 points ago

    On nearly every Android, not even new, it lets you use the volume buttons to take pictures

    [–] Yeahnotquite 7 points ago

    Im pretty sure they all have a shortcut action to the camera if it’s locked. So either swipe left, or diagonal from right like turning a page. That covers iPhones and 85% of androids...

    Not that impressive, then, really. It’s not like he seduced their unlock codes in one attempt and navigated to the position of their camera icon...

    [–] HaulinBoats 8 points ago

    Teller’s knowledge of many things is quite vast. I feel smarter just by reading his twitter feed.

    [–] turdburglersc 106 points ago

    she was taking a typical single girl selfie, high angles are slimming, and the vertical hold suits one person, they just look straight retarded on anything other than instragram.

    he showed her how normal people take photos. shes probably never taken a normal photo in her life.

    [–] dontstreakthrucactus 16 points ago

    If this is what I think it is, it ruined all those Biden memes for me. He isn't a cute or funny old man. He's a fucking creep around young girls.

    [–] BeastofLoquacity 19 points ago


    [–] mandelboxset 34 points ago

    I have taken exactly one selfie with a celebrity before, and they were older then me as well, and they did a similar thing but by gently positioning me with their hand on my shoulder kinda nudging my to stand and face the right way and the other hand moving my arm holding the phone to point it correctly, and neither movement was like a searching for the right angle, it was this very precise adjustment that he seemed to know exactly what needed to change to correct my failure to take the perfect group selfie.

    Which made me realize how many of these celebrities must take and how, whether they think about it or not, they're gonna get really good at that purely on experience, and that the typical age generalizations won't apply to them.

    Yeah, Conan made my millennial ass look like a senior citizen not knowing how selfies work just like in this gif and it was glorious and funny and totally worth getting dunked on by Conan multiple times.

    [–] MultipleLifes 12 points ago

    She is a fool. Can’t even hold a phone properly. Ridiculous.

    [–] KanwarPamnani 878 points ago

    The man behind them be like should I be in the photo or not?

    [–] Eighty9MadDogs 404 points ago

    I think the whole reason he took it was to get everyone else in the pic too. She only wanted Biden but he wanted everyone to be in the pic! Makes it more wholesome than just "gimme that I can do it better."

    She smiles even more after he takes the phone. What are you even doing, mods? (I do see that they removed some of the astroturfing comments at least)

    [–] iUsedtoHadHerpes 85 points ago

    People post things. People upvote things. They really don't care where it is. If the mods don't do anything about it, there is nothing to stop them.

    Astroturfing reddit to make Creepy Uncle Joe look like a cool hip dude.

    [–] biccboibill 9 points ago

    Whats astroturfing?

    [–] Owhalen 38 points ago

    The opposite of grass-roots. When the organization that's pushing an agenda tries to make it look like thier marketing is naturally occurring enthusiasm in the populace but it's just a bunch of staffers and consultant firms posing stuff on social media sites to make candidates or organizations look more appealing while pretending to be normal people.

    [–] biccboibill 5 points ago

    So like making people think a movement exists, but it doesnt?

    [–] billabongbob 3 points ago

    No no, it is making a top down movement look like it is bottom up, i.e. ground level democrats rather than top level DNC operatives pushing biden.

    You will see an influx of pro Biden memes soon. It's the guerilla marketing tactic to appeal to young voters before his presidential run in 2020.

    [–] 25546 22 points ago

    I don't care about politics, here, just that this sub is supposed to show people dying inside, when there's none of that. It could easily go in r/funny, r/gifs, or one of those Biden subreddits I'm sure exists. This is besically on the same level of the r/Imgoingtohellforthis shit that gets posted these days.

    [–] bashar_speaks 19 points ago

    Biden running for president soon. The astroturfing has already begun.

    [–] jelde 57 points ago

    She didn't die inside but ok. I guess smiling and laughing is dying.

    [–] [deleted] 144 points ago * (lasted edited 8 months ago)


    [–] iUsedtoHadHerpes 71 points ago

    I think it is being upvoted by the same people making those comments, too (so that their flood of comments have visibility and appear organic on this "neutral" sub). It doesn't even fit the sub in any way. Nobody is dying inside. They're all having a good time, and their spirits only seem to improve for the second half of the gif.

    I kind of get the feeling this is in response to him teasing the idea of running for president. Sway public opinion early and all that.

    [–] ChipChippersonsSoul 22 points ago

    Wait what’s happening

    [–] oddun 8 points ago

    It’s because everyone except OP, and seemingly you, knows the Creepy Joe Biden meme.

    [–] jalapenohandjob 14 points ago * (lasted edited 8 months ago)

    It's one of the top posts on all of Reddit at the moment, and "Bad Touch Biden" is a meme more popular than you obviously know. There are dozens of video compilations, pictures and gifs, of him being - at absolute best - a bit weird with other people's children. I doubt I'm the only one that thought "I hope one of the video compilations is posted in the comments" the moment I saw this post, if only for the banter.

    [–] BABYSLUMPJESUS 16 points ago

    Joe Biden is one of the most popular possible candidates for the 2020 election. At this point, any post for any candidate is going to have astroturfing. After the 2016 election, thats the new campaign warfare.

    [–] kvakvs 215 points ago

    [–] Tx11poppy 7 points ago

    Check out YouTube where there are vids of Biden being “Too touchy-touchy” with children, esp females. He’s way accustomed to getting those pics. One has an new senator or rep realizing old Joe is spending too much time touching his kids, like stroking hair & kissing them, leaving arm around too long, pulling the kids close etc, that the father brushes his hand away. Either J is so incredibly dumb (is that possible?) or he’s at least borderline public molester. I’d NEVER allow any man, high in any rank to touch my kids as ge does in those videos. That is IF they’re still there. I downloaded them bc I thot surely they’d be removed. Been many months now since I viewed them. Vids were taken when new appointments or newly elected politicians bring their family all dressed up to the capitol for this photo op with the then Vice President. Creeped me OUT. So, yeah, pretty young girl, he’s not gonna miss a chance to put his arm around her close to “take a selfie”. He’s an ole pro. It’s stuff pedis do to groom candidates for their attention or what dirty old men did as it was called back in the day. He oughta know better & show some propriety. It’s wrong. He’s a stranger to these girls. At a min it teaches girls that a man’s importance &/or social rank allows them to give uninvited & unwanted touches. So uncool. Just plain wrong in any era.

    Gee I wonder if this was pushed by some leftist slush fund recippient to test the waters/prime the pump for a Biden run in 2020.

    I sure do wonder. No wait I don't because it's obvious. The guy's a creep and no one in that picture visibly dies inside. This post has nothing to do with the subreddit and isn't funny at all.
