Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) sent Twitter users into a mini-meltdown on Tuesday when he was caught on camera removing a pair of glasses that he wasn’t actually wearing.
The clip, above, immediately went viral.
Hatch’s office saw the funny side of the gaffe and joked via Twitter that the 83-year-old senator was in fact donning a pair of “invisible glasses” from hipster-favorite Warby Parker.
“They’re new, you’ve probably never heard of them,” added Hatch’s office, alongside a fake listing for the spectacles:
Bespectacled Twitter users simply sympathized with Hatch’s predicament:
I do this all the time when I switch from glasses to contacts. Or I’ll try and adjust them using the bridge over my nose.

Everyone who thinks this is strange has never worn glasses.

I think this tweet is really separating the glasses wearers from the non glasses wearers today.
