Photobombing is the act of somehow disrupting or creepily placing yourself in the middle of someone else's photograph. Basically, photobombing is doing anything to draw attention to yourself when you are not the star of the photo. It's a prank as old as photography itself.
That's right. Photobombing dates back to the days when men wore those old timey bathing suits, ladies wore bloomers and governments were proving pesticides were safe by spraying them over little kids. Heck, someone even found a Civil War era photobomb in 2011.
But back in the olden days only a very few number of people could actually enjoy a photobomb because photos were kept private, rather than plastered all over the interwebs for the entire world to enjoy. Things may not be perfect today, but the Internet sure has created a lot of entertaining content for everyone to share.
And the government is no longer spraying DDT all over us…that we know of.
Hilarious photobombing is just one of the many privileges of the modern world in which we live. Let's take a look at some of the funniest photobombs in sports.
