Sometimes your mobile device's landscape mode is incapable of capturing the scenic splendor in front of you.
It's in those times of adversity that you reach for your phone and toggle right until you land on the setting for panoramic photos.
But as one Twitter user recently discovered, the pano option is not without its own pitfalls.
"I regret trying to take a cute panorama of my dog," posted @bulletsmikey late last week, the caption accompanied by two images of the man's pup, Reggie, flexed like a walking accordion with fur.
As is so often the case on the microblogging platform, the hilarious photo fail quickly spread beyond the OP's 1900+ followers.
"why does reggie look like gru’s pet [from Despicable Me]," quipped one man.
"“New Dog”, now with 33% less than other comparable dogs," joked a second.
Topical memes from the past were invoked: "brothers in arms."
Like any good thread, this one also prompted others to share their own photo flops (relatability FTW!).
"Don't worry your dog could have been like mine"
Curiosity piqued, we took to Instagram, where, indeed, we unearthed a bevy of similar of pano pet fails, the best and funniest of which are cobbled together below for your scrolling pleasure.
