Mr. Ridiculously Photogenic Guy

Hello once again, dear readers. Today I would like to introduce you to someone. This is, as dubbed by the Internet, Mr. Ridiculously Photogenic Guy:

Isn’t he pretty? This photo was taken only a week ago, on March 31st, and it’s already gone viral online. Actually this was the original photo:

He does stand out in a crowd...

Just look at him, dear readers! While everyone around him is sweaty and all red in the face from exertion (you know, like normal people?) he somehow manages to look like he’s in the middle of modelling for a Nike ad or something. While it is possible, even probable, that he is also sweating and red in the face, his beaming smile and shining eyes make any imperfection invisible to the camera.

Some people have got it really good; it’s just impossible to take a bad photo of them. They can be hung over, covered in their own vomit (or even other people’s vomit) and dressed in a paper bag yet somehow, they still manage to look magnificent in photos. Don’t you just hate those people sometimes?

I know in my case, I’m the complete opposite of photogenic. I’m always the one in pictures with my eyes half closed or with some weird expression on my face that only seems to appear right as the picture is being taken. And I know I’m not the only one out there who suffers from this sad affliction. We just can’t all be as ridiculously photogenic as Zeddie Little (that’s the guy’s name; even his name is somehow photogenic, whether that makes sense or not). C’est la vie, I guess…

And apparently, everyone online  has fallen in love with this guy (including me – just look at that radiant smile!), which of course means that they chose to express their love through the magic of Photoshop. Here are a few examples that I found:


He was even in the newspaper:

So Mr. Ridiculously Photogenic Guy, I salute you for becoming famous by smiling at the camera. (Who would have guessed that was possible?) However, one of the pitfalls of fame is getting an inflated ego, which is so very unattractive. So, as a favour to you, I’m going to give you something to keep your head from swelling and becoming ugly:

Remember this and you can be beautiful forever...

Now don’t worry Mr. Ridiculously Photogenic guy. We don’t actually hate you, right dear readers? It just the little green devil called Envy For Not Being As Photogenic As You (the name just rolls off the tongue, doesn’t it?) that makes us think we do sometimes.

  1. LOL! What a bastard. I actually know people like that and they irritate the crap out of me.

    I’m in the same boat as you, anytime someone wants to take a picture of me, I run away. Or make them delete it immediately afterward. I always look weird unless I’m really prepared for it.

    That pic with his face on all the other runners, they look weirdly natural. It’s a fair bit creepy. Especially the chick with the blue shorts. That really could be her real face.

    1. Yeah the most common picture people have of me is either of my back (I also tend to run when faced with a camera lol) or my hand or some other random object I found to cover my face :P

  2. Before you say anything more about Zeddie I’d like to redirect your attention to my gravatar photo. I was actually in the SAME MARATHON as Zeddie, about two miles behind, when some lady happened to snap a photo of me. I got hold of it, cropped out the other runners, and made it black and white and made it my gravatar. If you look carefully, you’ll note NO signs of exertion on my face. Just wanted you to know Zeddie’s not the only game in town.

    1. Lol, you’re right, that is a great picture! You could be part of the same Nike ad as Zeddie! Shall I dub thee Mr. Ridiculously Photogenic Guy #2? Hmm, but that makes you sound second best… How about Mr. “The Camera Loves You!” Guy? ;)

  3. Chris,
    Hands down [second] best post of the day!
    Le Clown knows about being ridiculously photogenic.
    It’s a curse, really.

    PS: I ate all the popcorn already.

    1. Thanks! And you’re right about Le Clown being ridiculously photogenic. You can pose on igloos like no one I’ve ever seen! But I’m a little sad I didn’t get any popcorn… :(

      1. Chris,
        Our relationship is young. I foresee many popcorn days ahead.

  4. A lot of people do look scary when they are running a long distance. I never run, but I am not-quite-ridiculously photogenic. And if we don’t hate him yet, we soon will.

    1. I know what you mean. Can you imagine Dick Cheney running a long distance? He’s already scary looking, so I can only imagine it would be terrifying to see him running…. especially if he was running towards you

    1. Thanks, I’m glad you liked it! Now, if I was going to be someone in that marathon, I would be the person waaaay in the back because, 1) I hate having my picture taken, and so would be hiding with the runners least likely to be photographed, and 2) I’m horrible at running so would be lagging behind anyway lol :)

  5. He’s the definition of those people you meet who never say a bad thing about anyone else. I hate him. I hope he was smiling because he’s thinking he’s getting away with a murder. But all this media attention means he’ll be caught and he’ll end up being the bad guy. Please let me be right.

  6. I don’t get how people can not sweat while running. I sweat while siting doing nothing sometimes. Maybe he is doing a Photo-bomb?
