When you’re a teenager, pretty much everything your parents do is unbearably embarrassing. So when you’re on vacation with your family and your dad joins the beach yoga class, what do you do? Take a photo and post it on Reddit, of course.

The above image, posted as “i wasn’t going to join reddit but then my dad did yoga,” caused a minor sensation on the social news site, receiving over 600,000 views in two days. Certainly, the image of a middle aged guy in cargo shorts struggling in downward dog next to a trio of yoga babes is funny, I guess.

And certainly, I’m revealing my own uncoolness by stating that I think it’s awesome that he jumped in for some beach yoga. Go, awesome dad on vacation! But I’m also concerned about his bad form (put your hands shoulder-distance apart, dad! walk your feet in! lift your hips!) and the fact that the teacher is paying him no attention. Let’s hope she gave him an adjustment after the photo was snapped.
