Viral Monday: Ridiculously Photogenic!

For this weeks brief update on viral phenomenon, I’d like to revisit a personal favorite:

Ridiculously Photogenic Series

From this original image, a cropped version began to circulate across the internet with funny sayings such as:

Two examples. Images courtesy of The FW.

The man in the image, Zeddie Little, was simply running in the March 31, 2012 Cooper River Bridge Run in South Carolina when his picture was taken and uploaded to the web and submitted to Reddit. After taking off, a ‘ridiculously photogenic’ series was born. Before long there was a ridiculously photogenic woman, who had just undergone surgery and lost 60% of her lung, and was hence named “Ridiculously Photogenic Surgery Girl“. Apparently, the girl was having difficulty sleeping, and posted images of herself to Reddit on May 17, 2012,  causing a mass response and creation of a new meme.

One example, from Know Your Meme

On June 6, 2012 a ridiculously photogenic concert-goer was dubbed “Ridiculously Photogenic Metalhead” and joined the ‘ridiculously photogenic’ family of memes after being photographed at a concert in Bucharest, Romania

Which ridiculously good-looking person will join the series next?
