There is so much content uploaded every single second.
It becomes harder to stand out because there is just so much content out there.
Content that screams “watch me”, “read me”, “share me”, “comment about me”.
More creativity is demanded to stand out, and one way to achieve quick fame people noticed, is to take extreme photos, videos or selfies.
Some people are willing to put themselves in dangerous situations for that perfect selfie.
Sadly, some actually die while trying to make such a selfie.
One of the activities people take on to claim their fame, is train surfing.
When you train surf, you ride on the outside of a moving train, tram or another rail transport.
No explanation needed why this is dangerous.
Or what about rooftopping? People hang off the edge of some of the world’s highest skyscraper, a super tall building or crane for example to take that jaw-dropping selfie.
Again, people have died while doing exactly that. Not a surprise there if you really think about it.
People who take on such extremely dangerous stunts hope to achieve viral fame with their photos.
They hope to stand out. They hope they get noticed.
Is it really worth it though?
Needless to say that you shouldn’t bet your life for a photo.
So if you have any aspirations to achieve fame by taking on these very acts, please revise your options.
