    The one finger selfie challenge is the latest internet craze in which people , predominantly girls it has to be said, stand naked in front of their smartphone camera trying to cover their modesty with only one finger.

    The challenge originated from an illustration by Japanese anime artist Sky-FreeDom, which shows a naked girl taking a selfie in front of a mirror, using only one finger in the reflection to protect her modesty.


    Dedicated women across the world are now copying the pose as best they can. One competitor has even shot a video illustrating how the trick is done. The clip published on November 27 went viral and got over 1 million views by the time writing.

    Surprising as it may seem, some men have taken the challenge too.


    However, not every internet user shares the fascination. Many have mocked the idea by making parody shots and calling it “the height of degeneration.”
