Selfie statue appears in Sugar Land, Texas to forever glorify our vain habit

Selfies are... inevitable. 

In fact, these days one would probably wonder how taking pictures of yourself wasn't a thing long before the selfie craze began a couple of years ago.

Taking a selfie is one thing, however, while building a statue of two girls taking a selfie is a puzzling act of modern art.

Yet such a statue exists. The selfie memorial was erected in Sugar Land, Texas, right in front of the City Hall, so that people in the future would gaze in awe when they find it out of the ruins of the 21st century civilization.

And there is one thing that's particularly noticeable to phone enthusiasts here: the phone the girls use to take that selfie. Can you recognize it? We're looking forward to your ideas in the comments right below.

I've always said the movie Idiocracy is a glimpse of the future. This further proves my point.

I'd bet it's an iPhone...! BTW, they should've sculptured these statues standing at the very center of a train track with an upcoming train... And there'd be a warning that reads: "Selfie Responsibly".... Ah! Now we are talking, eh?

No the camera is placed in the middle of the phone. So not an iPhone And nice thought BTW. But they have to sculpture a gigantic train and tracks for it which makes it bigger so and....... Uhh.. never mind just kidding lol :P
