Leave it to your parents to forget everything they’ve ever learned about technology during the moments that matter most.

A mom in New Mexico has gone viral for her startling lack of videography skills — at least her family is getting a kick out of it.

Susan Griego was tasked with capturing her future son-in-law’s proposal to her daughter, Amber Griego, at the Albuquerque Biopark. However, instead of getting video of Benjamin Steele Bacon’s (what a name) proposal to Amber on bended knee, the mom accidentally recorded her own reaction instead.

The plan was for Susan to capture the big moment. But since the camera on her phone wasn’t working well, she asked to use Amber’s.

“I couldn’t figure out how to work it and I’m taking a selfie of myself and I realize I’m filming myself instead of them and I’m laughing and we’re all laughing and I guess I’m not very good at photography,” Susan said to KOB.

The pair, who have been together three years, took the technical difficulties in stride.

“People have asked about it. I feel like that’s kind of our relationship. Something wacky and random,” Amber said to KOB. “It’s the perfect start to this.”

To Fox News, Bacon said despite the “tech mistake,” it was “a perfect moment” which if you ask us is all that matters!
