article imageGoPro: Man films entire vacation in Las Vegas in selfie mode

By Anne Sewell     Nov 15, 2015 in Travel
Las Vegas - Joseph Griffin was so excited about his trip to Las Vegas, he borrowed his son's GoPro to document the experience. Only problem was he had it in selfie mode the whole time.
Joseph Griffin hails from Ireland and was very excited about the prospect of his vacation of a lifetime in Las Vegas.
However, it turns out Griffin is, shall we say, a little technically-challenged. Despite this, his son Evan decided to lend him his GoPro camera to record the whole experience in Las Vegas, so he could share it with his family when he returned to Ireland.
It seems Griffin apparently didn’t have the facility to view the footage as he went along, as is evidenced by the video included above, so he got quite a surprise when he got home. As he was describing the various sights he was experiencing in Las Vegas, the entire video actually featured his own face instead. We never did get to see whether the Trump Tower is, indeed, "the same color as his hair."
According to PetaPixel, the disappointed traveler didn’t realize that the camera was set in selfie mode the entire time, so while he was trying to capture scenes in his hotel room and other areas of the city, he literally showed his own face instead.

Griffin did, luckily, describe all the sights he and his wife were seeing on their vacation, believing that he was capturing the scene at the time, but the actual views are sadly missing.
According to the Mirror, when Griffin got home, his son, Evan, saw the funny side of the whole incident and posted the funny four-minute video on Facebook and YouTube, saying, "So... gave my dad my GoPro while he was in Las Vegas. I did not, however, instruct him on how to use it so my dad being my dad, didn't know which way to point the thing!"
Evan even added the well known Benny Hill theme to the YouTube video for effect. Hopefully Griffin and his wife enjoyed the trip, whatever it was they actually saw.
