Take a Closer Look at This Woman’s Selfie and Your Nightmares Will Come to Life


Have you heard the urban legend about what happens when you take a mirror selfie three times in a row? 

Supposedly, as soon as you snap that third pic, the ghost of Karen, the girl who died taking too many mirror selfies for her MySpace page will appear behind you! And the only way to get rid of her is promise you’ll put her in your Top 8 friends and that you’ll post Dashboard Confessional lyrics on her wall every other day!

Fine, we made that up but one look at this photo that’s currently terrorizing the Internet and you’ll be inclined to believe that kind of story.

“Please tell me that is your shy daughter,” a reddit user wrote when sharing this image of a woman snapping a pic of her own reflection. Do you see what’s got them so spooked?

If you don’t see it yet, take a closer look. Closer…

There she is! Or should we say, there IT is! What is that? WHAT IS THAT?!

It looks too ghostly and see-through to just be a silly friend posing behind her.  

Is it just us or the thing behind her sporting a mischievous grin? And what’s with the glowing eyes? What are you plotting, Karen?!

So next time you want to take a mirror selfie because you truly believe Instagram needs to see your on point OOTD, think twice. Because Karen might be lurking behind you, ready to ruin your perfect photo foreverrrrr…
