A quick browse through Instagram will show you tons of people who are addicted to selfies, whether they'll admit it or not. The 'Save Yourselfies' social campaign takes a rather harsh approach to squashing selfies, as it's made apparent by the #IfYouSelfieIllDeleteYou hashtag. For the campaign, people who are fed up with selfie addicts are encouraged to share the video, simultaenously encouraging a selfie-addicted friend to put down their camera phone by tagging them.

The video promoting Save Yourselfie shows a rehab group for people who take too many pictures of themselves. Surprisingly, the group seems to have a lot of empty chairs, but these people have abused selfies to a point where they become invisible to others around them from overuse—this must be a selfie-taker's worst nightmare.
