Unconfirmed reports are coming out of Beijing that former NBA basketball player Yao Ming has set a new Guinness Book of World Record for the world’s longest selfie. Yao, who played for the Houston Rockets from 2002-2011, stands 7’-6” tall and has a wingspan of 7’-5”. By New Camera News calculations, by stretching his arm and tilting back his head, Yao may have taken a selfie with the camera as far back as 4’ away. The previous selfie record, 3’-9” by Miami Heat center Chris Bosh, taken after the Miami Heat won the NBA Championship in 2013.
Chris Bosh, when told that his World Record may have been broken was visibly upset.
