Woman Accidentally Sends X-Rated Video To Her Mum Because Of Google Photos Mistake
| Last updated
A woman sent videos of her doing 'unspeakable' things with her partner to her mum, after Google Photos turned out to be a little too technologically advanced:
Kara Tonin explained her nightmare technology fail in a TikTok video, which has since been watched over a million times.
The Canadian mum told how she ended up sending the videos to her mum, after innocently setting up a folder to send photos of her son.
She said: "This is a PSA for anybody who uses Google photos or any photo app that has facial recognition.
"If you are my son watching this keep scrolling and do not watch this video.
"Who am I f***ing kidding, you're going to watch it anyway but I warned you."
She continued on to explain how the app works.
"So Google Photos has this incredible thing where it recognises peoples faces.
"You type in their name, and it will pull up every picture and video with their face in it, and then you can make an album of that person and share it with your friends and family.
"Isn't technology incredible?
"A little too f***ing incredible if you ask me."
She explained that she set up the app to create a 'delightful little album' of photos of her son. She then set it up so that every time she uploaded a photo of him, her mother would automatically get a notification.
But then things went slightly wrong.
"So a little while back, I decided I want to spice things up a little bit in my relationship, and I made a rated R video where I was doing unspeakable, ungodly things.
"And Google Photos picked up a very small picture of my son in the background on my fridge and said 'hey that's a picture of Josh, let's send this video to Kara's mom!"
She added: "I'm so sorry mom!"
Viewers were understandably amused by Kara's story, although many people thought that the story would be more believable if she uploaded said video - for 'science and research purposes'.
One follower tried to make everything OK for Kara, writing: "I mean she didn't become a grandmother without you doing the unmentionables."
While another was just grateful that some good could arise from Kara's misfortune, saying: "Some people's purpose is to be a story of caution for others. Bless you."
Be careful out there, lads.
