The absolute worst time to take a selfie

I'm calling it now: The next Darwin Award will go to someone who is trying to take a selfie.

The latest logic-defying stunt comes from the Fetes de Bayonne in France this year.

The five-day festival includes running of the bulls, and the young man in the video apparently couldn't imagine participating without documenting the excitement.

In a comment on the YouTube video, a person who claims to be the selfie-taker, Francois Hofer, commented that he was thankful for the footage.

He said the video was better than just the selfie itself.

In case it needs repeating, taking a selfie in front of something dangerous - like an angry bull or a pack of racing cyclists - is a bad idea.
