Rural Irishman Joseph P. Griffin has introduced a new breed of Internet stardom to the world: the accidental vlogger.
The tech novice dutifully documented every step of his recent journey to Las Vegas, making one small but highly consequential mistake: His camera was turned the wrong way the entire time.
“So Gave my dad my GoPro while he was in Las Vegas. I did not, however, instruct him on how to use it,” writes Griffin’s son Evan, who did the only thing a decent son could do – he posted the video on YouTube.
The dad drops plenty of gems – and Forrest Gump quotes – as he explores Vegas’ various casinos and landmarks.
“I’m the tourist everyone hates,” Griffin says at one point during his wayward travels. (We beg to differ.)
