With the advent of smartphones and social media, selfies have become an inseparable part of our lives. New York-based DJ duo The Chainsmokers, composed of Drew Taggart and Alex Pall, decided to take advantage of the growing trend by remixing a monologue from a narcissistic female club-goer talking about the importance of taking good selfies before uploading them to her instagram account. They turned it into an instant classic entitled "#SELFIE".
The Ike Love Jones-directed iconic music video shows model Lindsey Diane bitching in the women's room about a guy who keeps texting her, others' fashion and bragging about her popularity on social media. The clip also features cameos from DJ Steve Aoki, rapper Snoop Dogg, actor David Hasselhoff, Far East Movement, Waka Flocka Flame, WWE NXT superstar Tyler Breeze, Canadian DJ A-Trak and Ian Somerhalder and many others. #SELFIE became a viral hit in part thanks to its celebrity support.

Lyrics to #SELFIE by The Chainsmokers
When Jason was at the table
I kept on seeing him look at me while he was with that other girl
Do you think he was just doing that to make me jealous?
Because he was totally texting me all night last night
And I don't know if it's a booty call or not
So... like what do you think?
Did you think that girl was pretty?
How did that girl even get in here?
Do you see her?
She's so short and that dress is so tacky
Who wears Cheetah?
It's not even summer, why does the DJ keep on playing "Summertime Sadness"?
After we go to the bathroom, can we go smoke a cigarette?
I really need one
Let me take a selfie
Can you guys help me pick a filter?
I don't know if I should go with XX Pro or Valencia
I wanna look tan
What should my caption be?
I want it to be clever
How about "Livin' with my bitches, hash tag LIVE"
I only got 10 likes in the last 5 minutes
Do you think I should take it down?
Let me take another selfie
Wait, pause, Jason just liked my selfie
What a creep
Is that guy sleeping over there?
Yeah, the one next to the girl with no shoes on
That's so ratchet
That girl is such a fake model
She definitely bought all her Instagram followers
Who goes out on Mondays?
OK, let's go take some shots
Oh no, ugh I feel like I'm gonna throw up
Oh wait, nevermind I'm fine
Let's go dance
There's no vodka at this table
Do you know anyone else here?
Oh my God, Jason just texted me
Should I go home with him?
I guess I took a good selfie
Let me take a selfie
