How Paul McCartney invented the selfie and the photobomb

He may be the best songwriter of this generation (well along with the other fella whose birthday it is today), have created a vegetarian food empire and graced massive events from London 2012 Olympics through to Live Aid. But history is likely to remember Paul McCartney for his biggest contribution to 21st century – the invention of the selfie.

Macca made the claims while speaking on Jimmy Fallon’s late night chat show and pulled out an image of himself with a camera to prove the point.

And as for inventing the photobomb, you’ll have to watch the video to see that one.
