STILL DOING DUCKFACE IN YOUR SELFIES? IT’S ALL ABOUT THE SPARROW NAOW.
As explained on Japanese morning television (yes, on TV!), when you make this facial expression, you open your eyes as wide as possible, and then you make your mouth like a chirping sparrow. The sparrow bit is important, which is why I’m translating this expression as “Sparrow Face.”
It’s like if the motion of your lips forming the duckface was at a 10, the sparrowface is a more subtle 4. Yo, we making progress…I guess.
