A 24 year old man, Bhanu Prakash, has quit his job as a research assistant at a hospital in order to break the world record for number of selfies per hour. The current world record 1,449 selfies per hour held by Patrick Peterson. Prakash’s personal goal is 1,800 selfies per hour.
Prakash told BuzzFeed in an interview that his inspiration for this selfie record came from Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
Prakash said that he needed to quit his job in order to give this record the proper amount of time and dedication. He frequently needs to relax and massage his wrists so he doesn’t hurt himself with all the selfies.
He is ready to break the record in the upcoming week on September 18, 2015.
