What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, especially if you never take your camera out of selfie mode. Evan Griffin got a GoPro camera for his dad Joseph to take on vacation, and Joseph loved it. Really loved it. Like, ignored-his-family-and-only-took-videos-of-scenery loved it. There was just one tiny problem: the camera was facing the wrong way the entire time. So, all the exciting sights of Vegas are  replaced instead by Joseph's face and his eminently dad-like descriptions of them. But much like penicillin, this happy accident ended up making the world a better place. Probably not by much, but at least you get to hear someone say, "Vegas baby" with an Irish brogue. Scroll all the way down for the video, but first here are our favorite moments.

Enjoy the amazing view from the hotel room...

"There's the Trump Tower, same color as his hair." -Dad.

See the sites from the monorail...

Oh Go-Pro, I love you so much more than the people I'm on vacation with.

Even the spot where Joseph is going to eat breakfast later!

Just got a great idea for a reality show: "The Real Dads of Rural Ireland."

Dad Jokes.

If you were thinking this would be a boring sight-seeing video, then you don't know Griff. What he lacks in technical skills, he makes up for in dad-jokes. Joseph does not one, but TWO Forrest Gump impressions. "Have you been on a big boat? No, but I been to Vegas." (Editor's Note: I don't remember that line, maybe it was from Forrest Gump 2: Meet the Gumps.)

Vacation videos are like a box of chocolates, your Dad screws them up completely.
