Yal-Ku Lagoon, Mexico (KRON) — There are plenty of great times to take a selfie with your significant other but perhaps doing it in a thunderstorm isn’t so bright after all.

A couple vacationing in Mexico learned that lesson. In a video that has since gone viral, Luis Morales Fukutake and his girlfriend were swimming during a storm near Cancun, Mexico when they decided to stop to take a picture together. The man’s girlfriend had just wiped the moisture off the camera lens when lightning struck nearby creating a mini-fireball.

Fortunately no one was hurt. The video now has more than 1,000,000 views since it was uploaded to YouTube earlier this week.
