This random, viral photobomber is causing the internet to do a double-take

Jumping into the background of a stranger’s photograph has already reached its peak and become passé. At this point, we’ve all seen so many photobombs that we’ve basically become numb to them. That’s certainly what I thought — until I witnessed one serial photobomber who managed to awaken the humor in my cold, dead heart.

It all started out so innocently, with this photo of a couple at UK music festival.

Wait a minute. What’s the guy on the right doing?

He is pretending to eat his own arm.

I’ve laid eyes on my fair share of photobombs, but this is, by far, the most … specific?

The photos of the bizarre photobombing garnered over 145,000 likes and 48,000 retweets on Twitter.

The photos quickly led internet sleuths to further compelling evidence: the mysterious man in question had apparently made a habit of photobombing multiple people at the festival with this very same stunt.

He would sneak into EVERY POSSIBLE PHOTO.

Eventually, the photos gained so much attention that the anonymous photobomber was forced to reveal his identity and take his bows. The man in question is Luke Manson, from Bristol, England.

Luke happily owned up to the photobombing stunt, and admitted that he had attempted to pop into as many photos as possible with his fist-eating schtick. (Which is hard to say, five times fast.)

He also apologized to some of his “victims,” like a true photobombing gentleman.

Although, really — who can complain? Particularly when Luke helped them go viral?

The photobombing even helped Luke meet some admiring ladies …

True internet love! (Maybe? If he slides into her DMs like he slid into these photos?)

There are plenty of photobombing stories out there, but this one may very well have the most delightful ending.
