Colin Powell Took a Selfie in the 1950s and It's Perfect (ABC News)

Retired Gen. Colin Powell today proved that he was hip before today's selfie-taking cool kids were even born.

Powell posted a 60-year-old selfie to Facebook and it was everything a selfie should be.

The black-and-white photo was taken in his bedroom mirror with a decidedly non-digital camera.

Ellen DeGeneres would be proud.

"Throwback Thursday - I was doing selfies 60 years before you Facebook folks. Eat your heart out Ellen!" Powell, 76, wrote.

#tbt, indeed.
