Why Do People Insist on Recording Videos While Holding Their Phones Vertically?

I was watching that LeBron pre game dunk video everyone and their mothers have been talking about. Sick dunk sure whatever but that’s not the point. Why do people insist on not turning their phone horizontally when they’re recording a video? The amount of videos uploaded to YouTube, Facebook, etc that are about 66.6% black bars is absolutely infuriating. The video has so much more potential if you could actually see the fucking thing.

I’m no iPhone expert but I’m pretty sure they film in HD if you hold it horizontally. Might has well bust out your fucking camcorder from ’89 and send me the VHS at this point. I understand holding your phone horizontally is kind of weird but it’s not that difficult. A simple flick of the wrist and you’ve got a golden video. Instead, you make everyone feel like we’re watching through a crack in the wall.
