GoPro cameras open up a whole new world of opportunities for amateur filmmakers. Home videos of cute babies. GoPros in space. Extreme sports footage.

Of course, GoPros aren’t completely foolproof. For example, you have to point them in the right direction.

In this hilarious video from YouTube user Evan Griffin, we’re introduced to a GoPro mistake so obvious we didn’t realize it was even possible. Griffin lent his camera to his dad while he was on vacation in Vegas, and while his dad was happy to use the GoPro as much as possible… he accidentally pointed the lens at his own face the entire time.

Yes, he filmed an entire vacation video in unintentional selfie mode.
