Are you still pursing your lips together like a duck when taking selfies and uploading them to Facebook? Well, stop! Duck face is old and out of style. The newest trend in selfie photo facial scrambling is called “chirp face.”
It’s a trend emerging from Japan. Kotaku’s Brian Ashcraft, who speaks Japanese, thinks that a better translation would be “sparrow face,” because that’s the animal it imitates.
To do it, open your eyes wide and your lips slightly, like you’re about to chirp with appreciation at a fresh worm spotted on the ground. Take a picture and upload it into the comments of this post. Be sure to include your real name so that the photo can be forever tied to you.
