A video featuring a man, who went out sunbathing in his garden but forgot to take his face mask off, has gone viral on social media for obvious reasons. The 12-second clip, shared by Twitter user @TheoShantonas, shows a man self-recording a message. “So, I am out sunbathing in the garden yesterday. And I forgot to take my facemask off. I am really not happy, guys,” says the man, who now has a tanned face but original complexion in the area that the mask had covered. Hilariously, the mask straps have also left their imprint on both sides of his face. “How am I meant to work like this,” the man concludes his message.
Sharing the video, @TheoShantonas wrote: “Public Service Announcement: Don't forget to take you facemask off when sunbathing.”

"Not the first person and probably won't be the last," the user wrote.

But some people had another theory: that it could be a filter.
It's a filter but still funny though— vince (@fvc15) June 7, 2021
It's a filter. Look at his hair. The tips are also “tanned”. It's a joke :)— Randal “The Essential” (@sw0rdfish) June 8, 2021
His neck isn't red either, was he just sunbathing his face?— Jeremie (@jrdesignsinc) June 7, 2021
