Gen. Colin Powell is kinda hip. Dude busted out “Call Me Maybe” on national television at the height of the song’s popularity. Dude knows what #TBT is all about. Now, here, Powell shows off a bit of Selfie Hipsterism.

“Throwback Thursday – I was doing selfies 60 years before you Facebook folks,” the former Secretary of State wrote. “Eat your heart out Ellen!”

Just move to freakin’ non-Colonial Williamsburg while you’re at it, sir.

Not everyone is super-psyched about the #TBT selfie:


If you want some history on the early selfie days, the Daily Dot traced it back to a 1839 self-portrait of amateur chemist Robert Cornelius.
