10 Of The Most Awkward Photobombs Ever

Funny, Lists, Photography

We live in an age now where everyone carries a digital camera with them wherever they go. As a result, there are literally millions upon millions of selfies being taken and uploaded to the Internet every day. So it’s only natural that a few are going to slip through the net that the photographer didn’t intend.

One thing that’s popular in the current trend of modern photography is photobombing, which Urban Dictionary describes as, “Intentionally posing in other people’s photos, for a later surprise. Usually people making funny faces in the background, without the knowledge of the main subjects of the photo.” As you can imagine, the following ten photobombs are quite hilarious.

The Joe Pesci

This one reminds us of the movie poster for Lethal Weapon 3 in which Joe Pesci is seen trying to peer over the shoulders of Mel Gibson and Danny Glover.

The Classic Crotch Grab

Photobombers don’t always have to pull a funny face. At times, there are those who like to take things up a notch with a crotch grab.

The Foreground Photobomb

While photobombs are traditionally performed in the background of images, this one kind of breaks with tradition as the perpetrator peers into the foreground to exact her joke.

The Creepy Leer

We can’t be the only ones who are a little freaked out when people look over our shoulders at what we’re doing. We can only imagine what the girl in front is going to think when she sees this photo.

The Ultimate Distraction

While you try and try to take in the loving scene of two people sharing a kiss, your eyes will always be drawn to the man in the back with his shirt off. It’s inevitable.

Grossed Out

We can’t tell whether she’s being serious or she’s aware there’s a photo being taken and she’s seizing her opportunity. Also, note the guy in the background who seems more interested in the grossed out woman than the kissing couple. Could it be love at first sight?

The Shocked Animal

Yep, even animals are getting in on the act. They obviously aren’t aware of what they’re doing, which just makes animal photobombing acts even more funny.

The Overreaction

Pop quiz: A photo is about to be taken with you in the background. You don’t know anyone involved. You have seconds to choose an expression or pose. What do you do? This guy went for Norwegian black metal vocalist.

The Mooner

There’s always one. It’s a mainstay of photobombing. Inevitably a photo will turn up in your own collection of someone mooning the camera in the background. Thankfully this guy kept his clothes on.

The One We Found That We Just Had To Include

Okay so it may be a movie and it’s most likely taken out of context, but we can’t help but giggle at the wide-eyed monster who’s curious about this mysterious human emotion call “love”.
