The heavy downpour these past few days makes us want to just stay at home and lie down on our beds. And it looks like our favorite babes are into this too-tamad-to-care attitude, too. Browsing through Instagram, it's easy to see that a number of celebrities have also decided to just relax, have fun, and take selfies while lying down on their stomach. Yes, folks! Because it's too difficult to go out, it's best to flood the public with gratuitous selfies. And apparently, this pose (on your stomach while slightly looking away in a coy manner) has a name.
It’s the newest IG trend right now: the “butt over back” (also known as the BOB) selfie.
The term “BOB selfie” originated from international news website Chive Media Group. The pose was once known as the “hump day pose” but then it evolved into the BOB. They first started compiling BOB poses back in 2015, but it was just this year that the BOB broke the internet and became a trending pose online.
It's kind of like the belfie (butt selfie, you noobs), but with some minor tweaks. BOB selfies involve capturing the backside from over the shoulder, the beautiful arches of the back accentuating the image. This one is definitely not a selfie for amatures. It's best to leave this one to the pros. Below are some of the hottest ones we’ve seen so far.
The most epic BOB? Andrea's FHM cover debut! She was doing it before everyone else was!
Our favorite Koreana makes us wish for sunnier days and more poolside moments.
Barefaced and one with nature? The perfect R&R combo!
Kim’s BOB is as relaxing as it gets. Now, we wonder what movies she watched during this movie marathon night.
It's safe to say that the BOB is one of Maxine’s favorite poses whenever she’s on vacay. Who can blame her? This pose is the best way to get her gorgeous back suntanned!
Pia used this BOB pose for a good cause. “Now that I have your attention, do you know your status yet? Cos I know mine. Not your relationship status, silly! I meant HIV status,” her caption says. It’s an effective attention grabber, to be honest.
That back tattoo though, Sos!
