Hugo Cornellier was a very ambitious tween, coming up with the concept to take a photo of himself every day, beginning at the age of 12, with the intent to create a time-lapse video, reports Express U.K.
He’s now 19 and has completed his ambitious project, which you can watch below:
Cornellier, originally from London, England, is flabbergasted by the attention his video has gotten, with close to two million views since he uploaded it to YouTube. He told the British paper: “The reaction the video has got is surreal. It’s shocking, especially considering how it’s still ongoing.”
His response to seeing himself change sounds like a typical teenage guy, with him oogling his own hairstyle saying, “With the time-lapse it looks as if you are watching my hair grow on a daily basis.”
That’s one takeaway from the video.
We give him a lot of credit for coming up with this plan and sticking to it for seven years.
Cornellier has since moved from London, and is attending college in Montreal, CA.
