If you emailed actor Chris Pratt recently, you may want to resend it. On Wednesday, the Guardians of the Galaxy star accidentally deleted 51,000 emails, sharing the cheeky moment in a video posted on his Instagram stories. Although Instagram stories only last 24 hours, fans have captured Pratt’s stunned reaction and shared the video on social media.
“Fifty-one thousand messages are in the trash,” says a flawed-eyed Pratt, as the number of emails quickly pulls to zero. ” Oh fuck. What did I do? It’s just deleting them all. All my emails. Oh my God. It could be a nightmare. “
Pratt tries to look on the bright side, however. After sitting with a stunned look on his face, he finally shakes his head and says, “Fresh start.”
The whole mess started when Pratt’s 7-year-old son Jack teased his father for 35,000 unread emails.
Apparently, the actor was trying to sort through his huge email log, aiming to process 1,000 emails a day. But somehow he ended up removing everything.
Many fans have wondered if Maybe Pratt could just restore the emails from his trash folder. Video shows TRASH header and number of emails down, which seems to show that it empties the entire trash folder, but it hasn’t released any updates or clarifications . Even if the email is recoverable, it seems to be a very Star-Lord / Peter Quill type of error.
And if you’re looking for an appropriate quote from the Guardians, you bet there is one. In the original 2014 film, the character Pratt slowly gives his finger to John C. Reilly while saying, “Oh, I’m sorry, I didn’t know how this machine worked. “
We’re taking you, Quill. The machines are confusing.
