An Irishman who went viral thanks to his hilarious 'backwards' video of his Las Vegas trip has been offered a second chance to film the holiday.

Joseph P Griffin was given a GoPro to film the trip by his son Evan, but didn't realise the camera was pointing the wrong way the entire time.

Throughout the video Joseph points out the sights from the Trump Tower to the Paris building, all the while pointing the camera at his own head.

The video has been watched almost seven million times in less than a week of being posted online.

Now, internet sensation Joseph Griffin has been offered a 'Las Vegas redo' by the city itself.

The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority are flying Joseph and his son Evan to the city this week where the duo will be given an exclusive tour of the iconic landmarks that adorn the world-renowned Las Vegas Strip.

A spokesperson said: "Keep your eyes peeled as Las Vegas will unveil the explorations of the beloved 'Irish GoPro Dad' reliving his Las Vegas vacation soon.

"In this instance, What Happens Here, will be documented for the world to see; hopefully with the camera facing the right way."

Evan's video also caught the attention of GoPro, who offered to send on a few accessories to help the Griffins film their new clip.
