Ansel Elgort

Ansel Elgort Hacked

The phrase “relatable content” is not to be used lightly. But in the case of Ansel Elgort’s recent selfie spree, it just feels right. Early Wednesday morning, the actor of “Baby Driver” and “The Fault in Our Stars” fame, posted 17 pictures of himself — yes, as in seven more than 10 — to Instagram in the span of 10 minutes.

The pictures were taken at a variety of angles, but their energy is similar. Here’s a sampling, in close to chronological order, to give you an idea.

It’s rare that one event online is so singular, so captivating that it makes people stand still and ask “what?” However, it seems these pictures caught the attention of famous people and normies alike.

On Instagram, some celebrities responded to the series of posts.

“Um,” wrote Tommy Dorfman of “13 Reasons Why” fame.

“Dude. What is happening right now?” Zoe Kravitz asked in the comments on one picture.

“You good? Lol” asked Jonathan Cheban, noted Food God and friend of Kim Kardashian-West.

Violetta Komyshan, Elgort’s girlfriend, wrote that she had a favorite of the 17 pictures. “I think this one is the best but they’re all pretty good tbh,” she commented on what appeared to be a mirror selfie.

“Were you hacked???” Perez Hilton commented.

But on Twitter, that concern morphed into the meme treatment.
