Here's an unintentionally amusing and decidedly sweet video of an older couple, Rita and Frank, trying to photograph themselves with their computer, referred to in the video description as "their new Mac." According to YouTube, the couple wants to take a photo commemorating Frank's 84th birthday, which they'll then share with friends.

As they wait in vain for the image to be snapped, they somehow managed to unknowingly shoot a video of the proceedings. We can only assume they're using a Flash-capture web app of some sort, as Photo Booth doesn't count down from 15. Of course, that's a guess.

If you ask me, the result is much sweeter and far more charming than the photo could have been. Happy birthday, Frank!
