lightning explosion behind couple taking selfie
At least they didn't have to use a flash.

There's a thunderstorm rolling in. But first, let me take a selfie.

This might be what went through Luis Morales Fukutake's mind during a recent trip to Mexico with his girlfriend, according to UK Metro. As the happy young couple posed for their selfie, the pristine tropical background was suddenly interrupted by a bolt of lightning, forcing them into the water.

At least they didn't have to use a flash.

Presumably, Fukutake and his girlfriend eventually did take their selfie, but chances are that the behind-the-scenes video will have many more views than anything they post to Instagram. Currently, the video has more than 150,000 views.
