Dads and technology don't always mix.
Just ask Simran, a 21-year-old Twitter user whose father recently tried to show off his photo skills using his iPhone X's panoramic feature, but failed miserably.
On Saturday, Simran tweeted two panoramic photographs her dad took of her on their family vacation. While the panoramic feature is most often used to capture especially wide landscape shots, Simran's Hip Dad doesn't play by the rules.
"My dad told me to stand by the apples because he said he discovered a new way to take pano pics vertically. I agreed to it and this was the result," Simran told Mashable via Twitter.

"My dad trying to take panoramics of me. I'm mad asf," Simran tweeted alongside two photos of herself looking like an optical illusion.
"When he saw them he said 'they look great' and then I saw them and completely lost it. I mean, are you kidding me? I look like an Alien," she said, noting that several people on Twitter have compared her to Kanye West and Lil Pump in their music video for "I Love It."
To see how truly distorted the shots were, here's what Simran looks like through a regular lens.
Nice try, dad, but in the future, leave the fancy photo tricks to the pros.
