The Singapore Grand Prix is known for its electrifying atmosphere, and this year was no different. With F1 cars zooming past at breakneck speeds, the sleek racecars thrilled the audience with their iconic whirring roar.
While many in the crowd were busy recording the high-octane action on their phones, there was one gentleman who was not quite as successful in capturing the moment.
The Forgetful Uncle
As the OP (original poster) sat in the stands, eagerly recording the thrilling race, he noticed something peculiar happening beside him.
An elderly man, wearing a red cap, was holding his phone up in the video-recording function. However, to the OP’s surprise, the man had not pressed the record button.
The OP said in his video caption that the uncle had been holding his camera up for 20 minutes, thinking that he had pressed record when he hadn’t.
“Uncle, you never press ‘start,’ uncle,” the OP told him in a hushed tone. When the elderly man did not seem to have any reaction, the OP repeated himself, this time louder, “Uncle, you never press start!”
To the amusement of those around them, it became apparent that the elderly man had been holding his phone up for a whopping 20 minutes without actually capturing anything.
The TikTok video generated a flurry of reactions, with viewers sharing their own stories of forgetfulness and amusement. Many could empathize with the uncle’s unintentional blunder, turning it into a light-hearted and relatable moment.
