He may not be the first one to do the selfie , but according to Hugo Cornellier, he was already taking selfies before these became cool. As proof of this, the 19-year-old made a video which tracked his development from 12 years old to 19 years old, a video that quickly became a viral hit across various social media.

This young man is surely going to earn a mark on the Guinness Book of World Records one of these days – especially because he admitted plans of continuing his daily selfie routine.

It is amazing to watch the video, seeing how the young boy literally transforms right before your eyes. He would experiment on hair style and facial hair over those years but one thing many viewers noticed was that he appeared to never have cracked a smile even once on the photos included in the video – or can you spot one where he is smiling? Good luck watching the video frame by frame if you aim to do that. Don’t say we didn’t warn you…

There were also instances when he had company but most of the photos were just him.

So, how many pictures has he taken all those 7 years? Hugo admits he really did miss a couple of days – but only around 50 of the more than 2500 he is expected to take (365 * 7 = 2555, give or take 1 or 2 days for leap years).

Watch the video below and be amazed at this clever young man.
