“If you need a laugh this Thursday, look no further: the Student Union of Nottingham Trent University in England has you covered with a viral video they released a couple of days ago. It’s a classic that never seems to get old: a montage of people smiling or posing awkwardly for what they think is a photo, when in fact it’s video the Student Union was shooting.
This certainly isn’t the first time we’re shared something like this before — even big shot musicians have gotten in on the prank — but this wasn’t even a prank at all. Apparently it’s just “students mistaking a video camera for a stills camera.”
Solution: put together a montage of some of the most awkward and contrived poses they get from this fortunate mishap.”
