Benny Winfield Jr., better known by his Instagram handle mrpimpgoodgame, began posting virtually identical selfies with his signature smile in mid-July and has since amassed a large following. In an interview with BuzzFeed, Winfield shared his motivation:
When I first looked at Instagram I didn’t see anything original. Everyone was just trying to be like celebrities. Doing what they’re doing doesn’t separate or distinguish you. So I thought what if I just do this, just put out pictures of myself. You don’t see that regularly on Instagram.
