Dad recreates daughter’s racy selfies
ENGLAND - A dad who embarrassed his daughter by copying every selfie she posts on Instagram has really shamed her - by clocking up almost double the number of followers she has. Shocked at his daughter’s provocative selfies, father of three, Chris Burr Martin, 48, mocked them in the most embarrassing dad way possible - sharing his versions with his 49 followers. But the internet found his depictions of his 20-year-old daughter Cassie’s selfies so funny, he soon matched her 31,000 followers - and now has almost double the online fans that she does. Now an internet sensation with 53,000 followers on Instagram, Chris said: “I first noticed my daughters selfies a few months ago in May. She’d been on Instagram for longer than me by far until recently I barely even understood Facebook! No way did I expect such a big reaction, if I’d have known that people all over the world would have seen the photos, I would have at least drawn the tattoos better. I last saw I had 53,000 followers and at least 52,951 are from the selfie dad thing and Cassie reminds me of it every chance she gets”, he added. I guess people prefer funny over pretty! According to Cassie, her father started the hilarious photo series to warn her that some of her photos were too racy for his liking. “He wanted to show me what I looked like in his own way to prove I was showing too much skin or being a little too risque in my photos”, she said. “It was a real shock he doubled my numbers in such little time. ‘I do think a little more about which photos I post now because I know certain photos can never be erased on the internet and certain people will see it. ‘Sometimes I do want to see behind the scenes when he does it because I admit they are more creative than I could ever do selfies.” Chris’ wife Jani said she was ‘really stunned by everything happened’, although she is happy that it did because they now spend more time together. Meanwhile, Chris’ youngest daughter, Taylor, said: ‘I think it’s really funny how a dad and daughter could bond by selfies, it went insane!’ (dailymail.co.uk)
Chris even copies the outfits and draws fake tattoos to ensure the photos are accurate.
