Early 2015 saw the rise of selfie sticks and their ability to simplify group photos. Since the birth of the innovative device, many iterations have been made that make the product even more enjoyable.

While innovators have remixed the device by adding faux limbs and even food utensils, actor Ben Stiller has taken the selfie plunge to entirely new heights. At the London premiere of the actor's latest film Zoolander 2, the comedic icon wowed the blue carpet with a 28 foot long selfie stick. Stiller was able to capture quite the aerial shot of himself, cast members and fans with his elongated photo-taking device.

In addition to fans and the cast, a Guinness World Records official was also on hand at the movie premiere and granted Ben Stiller an official Guinness certificate for the World's Longest Selfie Stick.
