Fate can be cruel, but it can also be hilarious.
A woman named Karla from Los Angeles survived a car accident unscathed, but the same could not be said for her vehicle. She took several photos of her dinged up car and organized them into her smartphone's folder designated for an insurance claim.
When Karla tried to send the photos to her father, she inadvertently hit the "slideshow" button instead of the "copy iCloud link," according to Business Insider.
The result was a video montage of her unfortunate fender bender set to the uproarious strains of "We Like to Party" made popular in the 90s by The Vengaboys.
I got in a car accident and I put the pics in a separate folder and my phone made a slideshow and this song started… https://t.co/oTzaJLa3kL— karla (@karla)1545709003.0
Instead of coming undone, she gave in to the humor of the snafu.
"I took it as a sign of the universe trolling me," she conceded.
Karla was stunned over the slideshow function's taste in music.
"I have no idea why out of all of my songs in my phone it chose that. So I just thought it was ironic that such a party song would be background music to a really sucky situation."
@Mpfk Man if it did I’d be honored instead of being upset lmao— karla (@karla)1545766315.0
Things could have been worse. So, to show her friends she was okay despite the ordeal, Karla shared the cheery video which got an unexpected result. To date, her post received over 350k likes.
"I posted it on Twitter thinking just my friends were going to see how ridiculous it was and it went viral."

The video reminded one user of a Six Flags commercial.

The timing of the car horns blaring from the song coinciding with pictures of the damaged car amplified the hilarity.
@spiritb0red I thought the horn sound was part of the pictures and I got scared that I was gonna witness the crash— Josh Coker (@Josh Coker)1545764629.0
"It's hilarious how when the damage is shown on the car the two horns in the song start blaring," Karla said. "I just had to show the irony of my misfortunes with such an iconic song blasting in the background!"
The accident occurred when she was making left on a residential street. Another driver ignored the stop sign at the intersection and t-boned into Karla's vehicle.
@Boogadies No it wasn’t at a light, it was a residential street with stop signs and the cops at the scene said she… https://t.co/l3dSnhHa6c— karla (@karla)1545857346.0

We're glad Karla is fine, and she gave a crucial reminder about the importance of documenting damages immediately following a traffic accident.
Many people tend to forget snapping a photo due to their emotional state after a collision, but archiving the details in the aftermath is a big difference between a solid insurance claim and a poor one.
The Becker Law Office website states:
"Photos from the scene of a car accident can show proof of the cause of the accident, what contributing factors may have had a role in the accident, and the extent of damages that victims suffered as a direct result of the impact of the collision."
Upbeat background music, however, is optional.
