Who cares if the result is even more embarrassing. Not this guy!

Over on Japanese comedy site Omocoro, a fellow who goes by “Mansooon” said that he found selfie sticks embarrassing because when you use them, other people know you are using a selfie stick. Then, there’s the fact that some hate folks who use selfie sticks.

So, to overcome this, Mansooon came up with this.

If your arms were longer, you wouldn’t need a selfie stick.

Mansooon set to work on building his tongue-in-cheek contraption.

Just jam a selfie stick into plastic hands.

This will fool anyone. It looks real. See? Fooled me. Hrm. All that’s missing is a shirt.

With very long sleeves.

Appears vaguely natural.

This totally doesn’t look like he’s holding a selfie stick under that shirt. Sorry, two selfie sticks.

You might remember Omocoro from the site’s other amazing invention: the fart cannon.
