Woman Takes Accidental Sochi Selfie, Tweet Goes Viral

Woman's Accidental Sochi Selfie

A woman took an accidental Sochi selfie during a hockey game on Thursday, and the tweet showing her fail has gone viral. The photo was originally tweeted by Bryan Wood after it was sent to him by a friend.

In it, a woman is attempting to take a picture with her point-and-shoot camera, but unfortunately it looks like she didn’t read the instructions first. Rather than looking at the screen to capture a fantastic photo of the Russia vs. Slovenia men’s hockey game, the woman is about to capture a close-up view of her own eye.

The tweet has become a viral hit, even more so than reports of people painting the grass green, US bobsledder Johnny Quinn breaking down his bathroom door, or US skier Gus Kenworthy promising to save stray puppies he found on Sochi’s streets.

As of Sunday morning, the tweet has more than 25,000 retweets, more than 16,000 favorites, and has mentions from around the world. But given how much trouble the woman is having with her regular camera, we’re not sure she’ll ever see the photo on Twitter.
