The picture explains it well enough.

When people refer to the selection I would like to make it clear that you
are distorting the image (contents of the selection) rather than the
selection (the shape of the selection), but I understand it can be
difficult to explain these things clearly.  This is essentially a
distortion and hasn't much to do with the selection.

Such an effect can be achieved by creating an Elliptical selection and
then using the Perspective tool to invert and distort or rotate the
selection as desired.

It should be possible to automate the process using a script or a plug-in
if a programmer was interested enough to do it.
