Posted by


Joe GriffinTHE Tralee man seen by millions of people in a GoPro video fail in Las Vegas, is now set to star in promotional video for the famous city.

Joe Griffin, originally from Clogherbrien, now living in Balbriggan, Dublin, had his GoPro video (below) uploaded by his son Evan and has been seen over 6.7 million times on YouTube.

Joe and his wife Anne were on holiday in Vegas back in August and took Evan’s GoPro video with them to record the sights. Unfortunately, Joe’s camera skills leave a lot to be desired.

It features Joe walking around Vegas with the camera facing himself rather than at the sights of  Sin City, while Joe gives a running commentary on the attractions that the viewer can’t see.

The viral video has now caught the attention of the Las Vegas Tourist Board and Joe and Evan are heading off today to the city to film a promo for the organisation.

They won’t be bringing Evan’s GoPro though, as Joe managed to go underwater with it while on the holiday without using the waterproof case. Luckily Evan was able to retrieve the footage.

However, multinational company Fedex are fans of the video and are sending Evan a new camera for free.

Who would have thought Joe’s camera cock-up would lead to all this?
