Raptors star Cory Joseph puts a new twist on the selfie


(NC) Cory Joseph may be one of Canada’s favourite ballers, but what fans don’t know is that his selfie game is almost as good as his basketball game. Now, he’s taking his selfie snaps to a whole new level with the LG G6 “twofie” feature.

“The twofie is a thing you can only do if you have the same smartphone as I do,” says Joseph, whose device of choice is the LG G6. “My smartphone’s square camera mode lets me take full advantage of the multiple cameras by letting me photograph the scene in front of me and my reaction to it ( at the same time! Essentially it’s a double selfie. And it’s awesome.”

Joseph, a Toronto native, was among the first in Canada to experience the square camera mode feature of the LG G6. He’s discovered that it’s a great way to capture images of some of his favourite hangouts and he and his friends experiencing them together. A few of his top twofie experiences include:

• Caribbean foods: Joseph loves curry roti chicken and is always on the lookout for a new Caribbean restaurant to try, because nothing works better than a food shot mixed with the pre-food coma smile.

• Ping pong. In case you thought Joseph’s athletic prowess was limited to basketball, don’t go up against him in a ping pong match at the local ping pong tables. The video twofie of your defeat and his victory dance isn’t pretty.

• YMCA. It’s where Joseph got his start and it’s a great spot to cheer on the basketball stars of tomorrow in action.

• The dog park. All dog lovers know that man’s best friend is good for a laugh, and there is no better place for Joseph to snap amazing twofies with his poodle, Ziggy.

Joseph says there is no limit to the twofie possibilities.

“When it comes to twofies, I can also create them using an existing picture. Just the other day my fiancée asked what the dress code was for an event we were going to together. I grabbed a picture of her wearing a dress that fit the occasion, took a thumbs up selfie and sent it off to her. I feel like my twofie are pretty amazing and I’d love to see what Canada can come up with.”
