The Singapore Grand Prix this past weekend brought a tremendous attendance exceeding expectations.

The sleek racecars came in and out of view in seconds, their iconic whirring roar sweeping over the excited audience.

When the OP turned his phone back to await the next car’s pass, he suddenly noticed something was off.

The elderly man beside him, wearing a red cap, held his phone up in the video-recording function. However, the big red circle button indicated he had not hit the record button.

“Uncle. You never press ‘start’, uncle,” the OP told him. When the uncle did not seem to react, the OP said louder, “Uncle, you never press start!”

Like a pro, he then snapped his phone back around to quickly record the next F1 car’s pass.

Filmed nothing for 20mins

According to the video’s caption, the elderly man ‘filmed’ for 20 whole minutes without hitting record.

The OP could only react with a long “aiyo” and the sobbing emoji.

Responding to a comment, the OP confirmed that the uncle did eventually hit record after being informed.

The other commenters found the video hilarious, one saying the mistake was “so cute”.

While it’s certainly a bummer for missing out on 20 minutes’ worth of footage, at least everybody can relate to making simple errors like this and have a good chuckle.
