It looks like a standard selfie… but this woman’s dad made an awkward observation.

There aren’t many feelings worse than realising you’ve sent a message that perhaps contained something that wasn’t meant to be said…or in this case, seen.

And one young couple were left extremely red-faced after they sent a snap back to the woman’s parents that contained something rather intimate.

Sharing the image to Twitter, the woman — by the name of Kelsey — uploaded what looked like a standard selfie.

But the 22 year old’s father quickly noticed a certain bottle at the forefront of the image, which left her partner, Elliot, “mortified”.

“Dad said the pics r lovely, nice durex bottle,” Kelsey’s mum said in a text message.

“It’s elliot’s knee cream!” the young woman replied, but her parents weren’t fooled.

“Ell is mortified,” she later replied.

The photo and text message exchange has been retweeted over 43,000 times and liked by over 3500 people.

“Aw man you can’t come home from that holiday,” one person said of the mishap.

“This is something I would do,” another replied.

“I am mortified at the same time for them.”
