Skittles wants to know- Should you take a Selfie or a Dronie? With fun giveaway!

What is photogenic, patriotic and celebrity all at once? The obvious answer is 421 Canadians coming together to break the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDSTM record for the most Selfies taken in one hour.


This Canada Day, with the help of Degrassi star Melinda Shankar, Skittles made it happen – and it was selfie heaven.

Canadian Selfie enthusiasts lined up patiently for their chance to be part of the historic record attempt and help break a world record in Canada, on Canada Day. “I love my fans’ passion for a good Selfie,” said Shankar, “and I was so excited to help Skittles capture the Selfie spirit and make Canadian history.”

Canadians who couldn’t be part of the record breaking can still continue to taste the patriotic red and white rainbow by visiting and uploading a Selfie which they can ‘Skittles’ and share on Twitter and Facebook with the hashtag #SkittlesSelfie.

It seems like everywhere I go people are taking selfies. I turn on the radio and the daily contest is to send in a selfie. They are everywhere!
