Twin Falls Tourist Steals Selfie Stick Spotlight From Family
This is the best video I've seen all week. It's brief, and most people who view it probably wouldn't really think much about it, but inside this Twin Falls tourist is a selfie stick star just waiting to be discovered.
The turnoff just prior to the Perrine Bridge heading into Twin Falls for tourists is a popular spot to get out and stretch the legs a bit. I've seen dozens of videos from this vantage point uploaded to YouTube throughout the years. The thing that I like about this video, is the fact that this man gives his (I'm assuming) wife and daughter only one-sixth of the camera time, before focusing the attention solely on himself.
I can honestly say, I've never held a selfie stick. I'm too put off by them. The last concert I went to, I had to do everything in my power to not chastise a woman who wouldn't stop interfering with my view of the stage because she had to videotape her and her four girlfriends for the duration of the performance with one of these things.
"It's a good canyon," the man says to the camera. Thanks to my co-worker Ellyn for providing me with the translation.
Judging by the minute-long upload dated January 15, 2020, this is most likely this family's first time to the area. I assume this because the man mentions where they are twice in the first :20 of the recording. It's pretty obvious the two females don't want much to do with being recorded, so I applaud this guy's act of self admiration. I'm not sure if the selfie stick is his, or his daughter's.
The thumbs up at the end is the best part. It's beautifully awkward. Hopefully this family got to spend some time in the city before heading off to their final destination.
