Couple Almost Gets Struck By Lightning While Taking A Selfie

Sometimes Mother Nature wants to get in on your selfie, something one couple learned in the most horrifyingly hilarious way.

Luis Morales Fukutake was just chilling on the beach during a storm with his girlfriend, and when the pair got ready to take a classic couples-selfie, the photo-op got more than a little interrupted by a lightning strike directly behind them.

As far as we know, this is the first time lightning has ever photo-bombed a picture, selfie or otherwise. Here's hoping lightning is as vain as the rest of us, and a bolt strikes the next time I'm outdoors flexing for a hot summer selfie, because an electrifying FB profile pic would get, like, 100 likes easy.

Check out the lightning photo-bomb below:
