Snapchat is definitely one of the most popular social media platforms in the world right now (according to VentureBeat, Snapchat had over 160 million daily users in 2016). One of the main reasons why this app is so popular is the fact that the photo or video somebody sends disappears after 10-seconds (which is quite the fad for those who enjoy partaking in sending scandalous photos. No judgment!). Another way people can use this app is to take photos of other people’s everyday fails. There’s nothing like catching someone else out of their element. What’s even funnier, though, is snaps of our own personal fails. Sure, it’s probably embarrassing, but at least it will make people laugh. Speaking of embarrassing Snapchat images, we actually found 15 fails that are so cringe-worthy, it’s actually hard to look. See for yourselves…
15. This Guy And His Failed Relationship
We can all agree (at least those of us who are single) that couples can be very annoying sometimes. We’re not cynical, just hear us out. We get very annoyed by their constant hand-holding, kissing, and PDA (public display of affection) in general. Like, we get it—you’re a couple and you love each other, but can you leave all that mushy stuff for when you’re home? But, there’s one thing that everybody loves when it comes to couples—drama! That’s why these snaps showing a man catching his girlfriend cheating on him went absolutely viral! Which is pretty awkward for everyone to be honest! Did he really have to share it with everybody? We kind of get it, though, he wanted to “expose” her for hurting him. But come on, this is just embarrassing for the both of them!
14. This Girl And Her Unfortunate Tattoo
Choosing the right tattoo is never easy because you don’t want to ink your body just for the sake of having a tattoo. Seriously, if you’re going to have something printed on you for the rest of your life, then it has to be meaningful. People usually tend to pick significant dates or some sort of motivational quote. But this example is different… Here we have a young lady who had song lyrics tattooed on her back, and we have to say, it’s a pretty interesting quote. First of all, that font is so awful that it makes it confusing to even read straight. Second, the grammar is terrible (you’re not your…)! And third, why does it look like that “A” is in front of “without” instead of “smile”? Now tell us, do you feel inspired? Will you start wearing your (or should we maybe write “you’re”) smile now?
13. How Did She Manage To Do That?
By now, we’re all well aware of the stigma that women are terrible drivers. “Ha Ha,” we get it and it’s not that funny any more. That stereotype has been around for ages, and it’s all sorts of wrong (I’m saying that and I’m not even a woman). Even though that stereotype is not true, this lady is definitely not helping. What makes this entire scene worse is that it was caught on Snapchat, put online, and now will be there forever.
Just look at the photo—the parking lot is literally empty, but somehow she managed to hit that lamppost. How? How did she do that? She literally had the entire parking lot to maneuver through. We think that somebody might have put a curse on her or something like that. We feel so sorry for the poor girl. Good thing we can’t see her license plate or face. She can at least deny it was her if someone showed her the snap.
12. Starbucks Baristas Are Always Failing At Spelling Names
What do you do when you’re craving a nice cup of coffee? Well that’s simple—you go to Starbucks, of course! If you’re one of those people who go to Starbucks on a daily basis, then you know how bad Starbucks baristas are at spelling. Seriously, they wouldn’t be able to spell your name correctly even if their life depended on it. Just look at the photo above for proof! The person said their name was Marc with a “C,” so that the barista wouldn’t write “Mark.” But guess what? They ended up writing something completely different— Cark! What the actual hell? Didn’t the barista think that “Cark” sounded and looked too weird to be real? This is the ultimate FAIL! Good thing it was recorded on Snapchat, so everybody can see another Starbucks mistake.
11. He Came In Like A Wrecking Ball
You know that song “Wrecking Ball” performed by Miley Cyrus, don’t you? Of course you do! That was the biggest song of 2013. You could literally hear it on every radio station and catch the video popping up on every channel. There was no escaping Miley Cyrus. And speaking of the video, you remember how controversial it was when it was released? No wonder so many people tried recreating some of the scenes (especially the ones where Miley is riding that wrecking ball or when she’s licking a hammer). The video was so out-of-this-world, that people couldn’t help messing around with the singers bizarre choice of props. And as you can see from the Snapchat above, this is just some of the weirdness that we’re dealing with. We’re not really sure what to think about it, to be honest. We love this kid’s effort, but we also are so sick of the song. Regardless, kudos for trying!
10. Rest In Peace? I Don’t Think So
You know how people say that we should let the dead rest in peace? Well obviously that’s true and you can’t argue about that. But sometimes, unfortunately, that’s not the case. Just take a look at this snap – now this is what we call the ultimate fail! From what’s visible on that snap, we can conclude that this funeral car had an accident, and that accident caused the coffin to fall out of the car. But hey, it could’ve been worse. At least the body is still inside and not in the middle of the street. Now, can somebody tell us the name of this company? Just so we can tell our families and friends not to hire them to transport us and our coffins.
9. Could This Have Been Any More Awkward?
Have you ever seen somebody so cute that you had to take a photo of them to show to your besties (AKA creepshots)? Everybody does it, so it’s okay to admit it (we never judge for things like that). Well, it looks like the person who was ordering food at this Subway liked what they were looking at and decided to snap a picture. Unfortunately, they didn’t check whether the flash was on or off, and guess what—it was on. Obviously, the whole place flashed when she took the photo, and as you can tell from the snap, the guy was confused AF. We don’t blame him though, we’d be confused as well. He’s just trying to do his job and isn’t sure if she’s snapping him or her sub.
8. This Is A Bit Too Much Information For Us
Remember how we previously talked about couples being super annoying sometimes? Well, we have another example to prove it! As we already said, PDA is very annoying—it’s just one of those things that should be kept behind closed doors. We’re all about expressing your adoration for someone, but there’s a line that shouldn’t be crossed. And it’s safe to say that this couple above crossed it. I doubt this girl’s followers really care about her love life. But since she embarrassingly snapped herself in some risqué clothing while her man is busy playing video games, she now made her love life all of our business. And now that we know this, we have one question: why did she have to share this info with everybody? Some things are better off private. Because not only did she share a little too much information, but now we just feel bad for their relationship.
7. “Quick! Take A Photo Of Me While I’m Pretending I’m Doing My Hair”
Now this photo right here is one of the biggest fails ever caught on Snapchat! We’re not quite sure if the woman from the photo really didn’t know that her curling iron wasn’t plugged in, or if this is just one of those fake photos. You know those fake candid photos that people post on their social media pages? They pose like they didn’t know someone was taking a picture, but we all know that they knew it was happening. Like that. Since we don’t know the story behind this snap, we’ll just go ahead and assume that she didn’t know it wasn’t plugged in, and that she made a fool of herself. Millions of people have seen this photo by now, and that’s one of the reasons it’s safe to say that this is one of the biggest Snapchat fails ever.
6. “They See Me Rollin’…” Not Really
Back when we were young(er) and went to school, we had only two ways of getting to school (and they were both equally annoying). Our parents either drove us or we took the crowded bus. Literally every student’s dream was getting their own car (mostly so they could sing, “They see me rollin’, they hatin’…”). Well, this guy above is fully aware of that fact and that’s where these hilarious snaps came from. He knows how cool it is to have your own car. The only problem is, he’s still taking the bus… And thanks to Snapchat, he fooled his followers by making it look like he was “finally whipping,” but in reality, he’s still just taking the bus. It’s okay, dude! Cars aren’t all that great as you think. You have to pay for insurance, gas, and all the upkeep. Busses (as uncool as they may be) are by far the better option.
5. That’s Obviously Not Big Ben—It’s The Eiffel Tower
Even though it might sound a bit rude, we can all agree that tourists can be a hella annoying. We know this because we have also been tourists before and are completely aware of how annoying we were. One of the things that annoys us the most are those tourists who have no idea where they’re even going or what they’re strolling around to see. A perfect example of this is the Snapchat user above. This girl took a selfie with The London Eye in the background. But she captioned the snap, “Big Ben selfie.” Girl, please… This is General Knowledge 101—there’s no way you can’t know what Big Ben is! The London Eye is that massive ferris wheel right behind you! And the Big Ben is a giant clock tower that is definitely not pictured.
4. We Honestly Hope This Person Is Joking
We have been staring at this screenshot for quite some time now and we still don’t know what to think about it. At one point, we thought it was hilarious, then we thought it was disgusting, and right now we’re thinking that it’s hilarious and disgusting at the same time. But then again, there are some parts of us that are hoping it’s just apple juice in that glass, and nothing else. Like, why would somebody pee into a wine glass and then post it for other people to see? Let alone leave it on a public shelf! In our opinion, that’s one HUGE disgusting fail. Does anybody have a good explanation because we are very curious about this weird phenomenon? Until we find a good reasoning behind this, we’ll just pretend it’s apple juice, okay?
3. Youth In Asia, Euthanasia—Close Enough
“Youth in Asia” and “euthanasia”… Well, we can see where all the confusion came from, but the difference between these two terms is pretty simple. If you go to dictionary.com, you’ll see that euthanasia is “the act of putting to death painlessly or allowing to die, as by withholding extreme medical measures, a person or animal suffering from an incurable, especially a painful, disease or condition.” And youth in Asia is well, youth in Asian. So imagine spending so much time on a presentation about youth in Asia when your topic was euthanasia! Horrible! This is such an epic fail, it’s hard to put into words. Thank God this person recorded their epic fail on Snapchat so the whole world can be sure to never to make this mistake.
2. And The Award For The Clumsiest Dad Goes To…
This is the funniest Snapchat fail so far on this list. We can already tell that this little girl will have a lot of trust issues, commitment issues, daddy issues—all of the above, thanks to her father who wasn’t there for her when she needed him the most: That time she fell from his shoulders into a foam pit. Although he should have been holding her tight, it’s clear that he’s a fun dad, but not a great multitasking dad. Nevertheless, it doesn’t make this snap any less funny. It’s pretty obvious that this girl will probably think twice before doing things like this again with her father, don’t you think? Let alone another man in her life. And also, can you imagine what could have happened if this wasn’t on top of a foam pit? Hopefully that girl’s mother never saw this snap…
1. At Least The Cat Is Enjoying It
We all have those days when everything (yes, we mean it—literally everything) is not going well. It could be as little as a tough day at school. Getting anything lower than a “B+” is enough to push someone near the edge. Or maybe someone had a tough day at work. No one enjoys getting yelled at by their boss or by some know-it-all in the cubical next to us. It all depends on the person and what they allow to get through to them. And when those bad days happen, all we can think about is getting home, pouring ourselves a glass of wine, and making a good meal. Until disaster strikes like it did for this girl pictured above. Like the snap says, “This is what defeat looks like.” Poor thing, can’t she catch a break? And although she looks like she’s about to cry, at least she doesn’t need to buy cat food, right?
