While everyone was freaking out over the Queen of England’s selfie moment at the Commonwealth Games this week, good ol’ Mother Nature was off scaring the sh*t out of this unsuspecting couple.
The Youtube video, uploaded by Luis Fukutake, shows the poor guy and his lady friend enjoying a swim at a lagoon in Mexico in the middle of what looks to be a pretty nasty storm. Apparently no one told the two that swimming while there’s lightning outside isn’t the brightest idea, and after posing for a waterlogged selfie, the couple got photobombed by a pretty explosive lightning strike.
I’m not sure what’s better, the fact that the two ran to the water for safety after the bolt hit or the slow-mo second go-around of the clip, but the moral of the story is this: Mother Nature is a total b*tch and a bit of a drama queen. Lesson learned. Pay more attention to her next time.
