Staging a picture where the subjects pretend to be scared of something is about as old as your middle school Tamagotchi. But somehow, this family seems to have missed one thing to execute it correctly.
There is one thing this family is missing and that is common sense. In order to be scared of the object you need to SEE the object. No matter how fake-scary this lake monster is.
You Literally Had the Clicker
This family of three was just trying to take cute pictures for their Christmas cards on their own. They did all the right things: get in their matching jammies, make sure their hair is on fleek, and set up a camera timer. Somehow, this is what they ended up with.
The thing the girl in the middle is holding is the camera remote, which begs the question: how did you not sense the sneeze coming before you pressed that button? This is why you get a pro, people!
Don't Drop the Baby
This guy had one simple task: just hold the baby and don't drop it. Not ever, but especially not while the family photo is being taken. But, alas, many times it's exactly the thing that we wish would never happen that ends up happening.
And so we have this half-funny half-terrifying vacation picture. The baby is ok, but it's still a not-so-great holiday photo.
Not This Camera, the Other One!
The woman on the right is Bollywood actress Neena Kulkarni, and as her IMDB page tells us, she has nearly 100 acting credits to her name. However, it seems like even someone with her record around cameras can't get her family to just focus on one lens at a time.
Good thing the other people in this picture don't have their livelihood depend on knowing where to look.
Careful now, this type of endeavor requires some serious planning, the kind of planning these people obviously didn't think of. This is how we end up with this ice cream twister.
The sister on the left is learning the hard way that she doesn't have the tongue of a giraffe. Dad is fighting the other sister over cone dominance, and the poor thing in the middle somehow has too much ice cream on her cheek and not enough in her mouth. Nobody wins. Except we win.
