People Are Laughing Over This Dad Who Took A Selfie Instead Of Watching His Daughter's Interview


Posted on May 23, 2017, at 11:48 a.m. ET

This is 18-year-old Iqra Hosain with her dad Syed and her mom Sadia. They live in Texas.

The teen told BuzzFeed News that on Wednesday, the family went to a lunch for students who received scholarships from the Ronald McDonald House Charities.

At one point, Iqra gave an interview.

As her mom recorded it, her dad did this.

Ronald took the phone from her dad's hand. "I’m not a selfie person," the dad told BuzzFeed News. "I don’t know how to take a selfie."

The dad said that he's a "people person," and naturally chatted up the mascot.

The selfie, he said, was not planned. "Let me put myself into the American kid’s shoes and take a selfie with McDonald," he recalls thinking.

He enjoyed the moment. "The small things you do, give you pleasure," he said.

“I just thought it was so funny," said the teen. She discovered what her dad was doing during her interview only after reviewing her mom's video evidence. She posted the video on Twitter, after her friends found it funny.

Many really related to the situation and most people tagged themselves as the dad.

Another person wondered about the father's motivation.

He was like I gotta upstage her


FYI, this is how the selfie turned out—WORTH IT.
