Stealing the Spotlight: The Absolute Best Photobombs of All Time

Image Credit:
Apologies to professional photographers, but we think the best thing about taking pictures is ruining them. Whether you’re a cat, sea lion or just a human impersonating another animal, photo bombing has become an intra-species pastime. The true winners are we loyal internet devotees who giggle and grin at these silly snapshots. If you’re new to the trend or just heard of it, perhaps we can recommend our Top 5 Photobombs to show you how it’s done? Even if you know what’s up, join us and relive some hilarious moments frozen in time.

5 Front and Center

As long as hippies refuse to take showers, anthropologists will continue to photograph them in their natural habitats: drum circles, head shops, protests, organic gardens and the Haight. Well, the first four things pretty much describe the Haight. But, even if you just smoked your last Patchouli-soaked dreadlock, how could you not notice a sloth sneaking into frame? Notoriously, sloths are the slowest animals on earth (slower than hippies at a late night showing of the Big Lebowski). So, this is more of a hippie fail if anything. That sloth has nothing to be ashamed of.

4 The Creeper

How evil would David Cross be if he had hair? Well, evil enough to take over an entire room. Somewhat unusual for a photobomb—I mean, it’s more of a photo booth-styled zoom in, right?—it does a great job of haunting your dreams. And making you never want to buy ice cream from a mustachioed man again. We won’t make you look at it any longer, because we have a feeling it’ll stay burned into the back of your eyelids.

3 Unintentionally Hilarious

If not for her love of gardening, Samantha might still be an only child (she’ll probably regret this by next Christmas). Of course, you can’t get across the internet without running into something that involves funny animals or children. But is this a funny plant? I mean, look at how joyous his little face is? Is it not possible that he may be drawing nourishment and bliss from the sustenance his sister is providing him? That’s going to be a weird family portrait. Oh, and bonus points for the paisley apron, young lady.

2 Some Things Never Change

We don’t want to get political, and apparently, neither does Slick Willy. It seems like he’d much rather get sensual. But we know and love Bill—and he’s normally a bit of a chubby chaser. Kelly Clarkson? Maybe if you were twenty years younger and she were blind. Or Bill had guns like the Terminator. Either way, we’re swearing in this photobomb as hilarious. And we’re considering submitting it to the library of congress.

1 Explosive!

If Chunky is the official soup of the NFL, we don’t want to know what brand sponsors this kind of explosive action. On the bright side, he did manage to unleash this fury on his rival. Just imagine if this guy were the center and he blasted the QB? That could ruin a whole season. And singe some eyebrows. Hopefully, they have a change of uniforms—I wouldn’t want to be at that homecoming celebration.
