Last year, Brendan Leonard warned C&K readers that the Selfie Apocalypse was coming. For one Florida man, it just arrived.

While cruising down a backroad recently, Alex Lopatnyuk decided to shoot a clip of himself in his Jeep. The selfie stick came out, eyes went off the road for a few seconds to see if the GoPro was blinking, and, boom, canoe through the windshield. Thankfully nobody (except the windshield and canoe) was hurt during the crash.

“This is why you shouldn’t Text and Drive or try to take a selfie and drive,” Lopatnyuk wrote in a Facebook “PSA.”

Stay safe out there.
