A sad and transparent buzzword created by a marketing company that has lost all touch with the society it lives in. The helfie was designed to artifically create a caring image for a party trying to demolish a country's social security in favor of its corporate overlords. Presumably they created this campaign with the sole intent to be mocked, because it's getting harder to pretend to be the underdog when you're the biggest party.

With the helfie they want to warm people up to they idea of: Do it yourself, because the government sure isn't going to bother anymore.

"Be right down, Princess! I'm taking a helfie!"

"Honey, can you clean up the baby's vomit? I'm doing my nails."
"Sure thing, dear! Right after I shoot a helfie!"
