This Is How Silly You Look When Posing For Photos

Written by 

You know when you see those 'candid' shots of people at events or nightclubs and think, 'Gosh, don't they look like a pack of tossers?', well, turns out, those snaps aren't candid at all. This little clip was taken of unsuspecting people who thought they were getting their photos taken but were in fact, being filmed. There is a current trend for people to open their mouths while getting their photo taken. Perhaps they are under the impression the photographer is a dental nurse? Or perhaps they think this is a flattering expression, either way, it's not a one snap kinda thing, the key is to keep your mouth open for a while to ensure your 'candidness' is captured.

I'm not going to lie, I've done this a couple of times on my phone when I've accidentally switched my camera to film instead of take a photo, but the results aren't nearly as hilarious as this.

The nostril flare and eye brow twitch on the girl on the left at 1:37 kills me.
