The "Best of Football" Instagram account has captured Ronaldo's system for taking as many selfies as possible in a given amount of time.

Fans moved, conveyor-belt-like, through the line until they reach the star, whose expression doesn't move a muscle the entire time. They then presumably pick up the photos elsewhere.

UK's Complex reports Ronaldo ultimately failed to break the world record set by Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, at 105.

Still: Brilliant.
