It’s the arthouse vacation film he never intended to make. Evan Griffin’s dad recently took a trip to sunny Las Vegas. Before the trip, Evan gave his father a GoPro to document his journey. And he did! Unfortunately, Mr. Griffin had the darn gizmo pointed at himself rather than at all the things he was trying to capture. Per YouTube:
“So… Gave my Dad my GoPro while he was in Las Vegas, I did not, however, instruct him on how to use it, so my dad being my dad, and a culchie, didn’t know which way to point the fucking thing…”
