A man on vacation lost his phone while swimming in the ocean and filming a video, but the footage doesn't end there.

Gregory Papadin was on vacation with his brother in Menorca, Spain, when the incident occurred, according to BuzzFeed.

Papadin's phone, which was in a waterproof case, survived the voyage to the seafloor and captured a visually stunning video. (His phone also seems to have created an accidental homage to a scene from "The Graduate.")

The phone appeared to fall in relatively shallow water, but it was still hard to reach. "The underwater pressure was too much for both my brother and I to swim and get it, but the owner of the boat we rented was able to reduce the pressure using a special breathing method meant for diving (equalization)," he wrote in his video description. "He was able to retrieve it, and my phone managed to survive the whole ordeal!"
