To those who aren’t glued to their cell phones sending Snapchats and uploading Instastories all day every day, Thursday marks National Selfie Day.Yes, you read that right. There is a whole day dedicated to taking glamour shots of yourself.To commemorate the holiday, McDonald's is serving up a Frlyus, a stylus that resembles one of their iconic golden fries.All you have to do is purchase a Quarter Pounder or Double Quarter Pounder June 21 at one of the participating locations, and your selfie game will be elevated.According to McDonald's, this is "literally the only solution for keeping your phone 100% fresh while enjoying our new 100% fresh beef Quarter Pounders and taking a 100% fresh selfie. And it really works! Most of the time!"

The commercial features Instagram phenomenon Kirby Jenner experiencing an existential crisis over what's more important, enjoying his Quarter Pounder and fries, or taking a selfie for the Gram. The whole affair is about as ridiculous as one of aging man-pirate Johnny Depp’s Sauvage commercials. Just, you know, satirical and whatnot.Note, Frylus are only available while supplies last, so do yourself a favor and show up early! If you don't, how else can you chow down on good eats and take a selfie, all without getting your phone dirty?
