Wisconsin RepublicanRep. Sean Duffy has decided it's time for people to stop being polite and start getting new fodder for jokes about him.

The office of the two-term congressman and former "Real World Boston" cast member released this video Friday featuring selfies he's taken with Barbara Walters, his adorable children, military generals, and even some Democrats, among others.

The video is Duffy's parody of the earworm #Selfie, by The Chainsmokers, which has racked up 80 million YouTube views since January.

Duffy has been a fan of the selfie for about a year, according to spokeswoman Cassie Smedile, and they have become a trademark of his. "It's now to the point that when constituents come to the office for a tour or meeting they'll ask to take a selfie sometimes in lieu of a traditional picture in front of the door."

Smedile said Duffy primarily uses the selfies "to engage a younger constituency" on social media platforms where they are are already interacting.
