All problems in the world (famine, drought, blight) can be avoided by not shooting photos or videos vertically. That is a lesson one woman learned when she tried to take a selfie with her favorite hip-hop group B-Minus and accidentally set her hair alight.


Buzzfeed broke news of this video, shot in March, earlier today, and has created a convincing PSA for the necessity of turning your phone horizontally when taking still photography or creating records of moving images.

The star of the video (or at least someone claiming to be the star, but why would you lie on the internet?) has left a comment on the article, delighted to be featured on the site. A win for everyone!
