When she asked for a photo, he secretly took a video and allowed her -- and others -- to pose, and pose, and pose some more for the photos he wasn't taking. And as seen in a recent video on YouTube, the footage is pretty damn awkward and dare we say brilliant.
In the video description, the man admits he's lucky to still have a wife.
