Remember the last Olympics, during the parade, where instead of seeing the athletes march along grouped by country, we saw unidentifiable people who were all either taking selfies or grabbing videos of everything going on around them, but we couldn't tell who they were because their cell phones were totally covering their faces? These days every time a thing happens and we see a pic or video of it, it seems, everybody else has got a cell phone in their face. I suppose that is how we manage to have pics or videos of everything that ever happens.
The above image is part of the plaque attached to two Pioneer Spacecrafts in order to show aliens, should they come across either of the space probes, what humans look like. But edited for accuracy.
Also note that these humans are not fully evolved because they have not yet learned to turn the cell phone sideways to get a better picture, especially when taking videos.

For those too young (?) to get the context of the joke, take a look here for some backstory:
If this is to be representative of the 21st Century, you'll need to add 50# to each of them.
(Wait.. Make that 100#. And put a Big Mac in their free hands.)
Nope. Still too inaccurate.
Something more like this:
With that, the aliens will mistake us for "Wal-Martians"...
Although I wonder for how much longer and whether this'll really still be the case in the future and what may replaces it?
