Funny Photobombs: People In The Background Completely Steal The Show!
1 Mom, Can You Take A Picture?
All this guy wanted to do was show off his growing muscles. Unfortunately, his mom didn’t realize that she was fully visible in the picture through the mirror behind him.
There’s only one thing worse than taking a shirtless selfie—having your mom take a shirtless selfie.
2 No Shirt, No Pants, Big Problem
This young man looks like he was heading to a high school dance. Even though it’s a momentous occasion for him, it appears his father couldn’t even be bothered to put on clothes before taking a picture.
Thanks, Dad—you ruined the photo by being fully visible in the side mirror without any clothing.
3 Hands Up, Pants Down
This girl probably revealed a little more about her life than she meant to in this photo. We’re not sure if the person in the background was trying to embarrass her on purpose.
If not, we have no idea what’s happening in this house.
4 Double Photobomb
This lizard was way too happy to photobomb this cat’s picture, and his snide face when the cat turns around is perfect.
This double photobomb is simply hilarious. This lizard must be very proud of his shot!
5 He Who Must Not Be Named
These girls thought they were taking a cute selfie together, and—if you don’t look too closely—that’s exactly what it is. But if you peer into the background, you’ll see a figure that looks quite a lot like Voldemort from Harry Potter.
Is this where he was hiding when he wasn’t tormenting Harry?
6 Hippo Photobomb
This man went through all the trouble of planning the perfect proposal, only to have a hippo ruin the moment.
But you can’t blame the hippo too much—he just wanted to get a peek at the ring!
7 Where’s Waldo?
At first glance, this photo is nothing more than two men hanging out in a crowded restaurant. But in the background, a beloved figure makes an appearance.
Where’s Waldo? Why, he’s right here, in this photo!
8 Famous Wedding Crasher
For an unknown passerby to ruin a wedding photo, it must be really annoying.
That Jason Momoa photobombed a wedding photo in such a way, however, is definitely a memorable moment!
9 Someone Want The Ice Cream
This woman was so happy to eat an ice cream cone that she immortalized the moment with a selfie, all smiles.
If we believe the intense look of the dog behind, this woman is definitely not the only one who wants to eat ice cream!
10 Not Having It
While these two ladies tried to take a sweet picture of their outfits, the sassy princess in the background was not having it.
However, we have to agree with her frustrated sentiment. Cute as she looks, all the pictures should be of her, and her alone.
This police horse wasn’t about to miss out on the action. After all, he’s a public servant as well!
He deserves to be in the photo, especially with a smile like that.
12 Don’t Drink That
As this youngster snapped a photo of his prom look, he, unfortunately, didn’t bother to check the background.
Now, all people will see in the picture is a cat clearly prepared to drink out of the toilet.
13 Great Parenting
While this baseball player was totally focused on the game, the parents in the background were dealing with a different issue.
We’re not sure how this kid ended up in this position, but we can guarantee his parents weren’t happy. Maybe this was just a special form of discipline?
This dad found the perfect way to ruin his daughter’s prom photo.
Instead of remembering how beautiful she was on that night, she’ll remember her shirtless dad in the background of her picture.
15 Check Me Out
It’s clear someone is standing behind this girl as she takes a picture. But it’s even funnier when you take a glance at the mirror in the right-hand corner.
While she’s posing for the camera, he’s totally checking her out.
16 Child-Eating Mickey
Apparently, Mickey has something of a dark history.
Don’t get too close to the famous mouse—he might just bite your head off!
17 Monkey Hug
This man just wanted to give this little monkey some food.
However, this monkey did not want food, but love! Come on, give me a hug!
This sweet family just wanted a picture together. Unfortunately, it’s hard to focus on their smiling faces when a violent little girl is choking her brother in the background.
Somebody help these kids!
19 It’s A Bird, It’s A Plane, It’s A Baby!
This dad chose this exact moment to throw his baby high in the air. While the child ruined the picture, he also made everyone’s heart skip a beat.
Let’s hope daddy caught him.
20 In The Front
This dog wanted to be part of this picture. After all, he is also a member of the family!
Come on, I’ll put myself in the front! Everybody smile!
21 When You Gotta Go…
The saying, “When you got to go, you got to go,” applies in every situation, even when a very pregnant momma is trying to snap a sweet pic.
Unfortunately, this image of her bursting belly will always be marred by the dog pooping in the background.
22 Go To Jail
This should be a very normal picture. However, it’s made much stranger by one audience member in the background who’s clearly wearing a Monopoly man costume.
Don’t go near this guy—he’ll send you directly to jail.
23 Whale Photobomb
If anything is going to photobomb your picture, a giant whale is a best-case scenario.
While it certainly takes away from the talent of the surfer, most people can go their whole lives without ever seeing a whale.
24 Man Bun
What a beautiful picture of friends! And it’s funny how the hairstyle of the woman in the center and the man on the right look alike! Two very similar buns!
Oh, but wait… that man bun is not a bun! Or rather, it is a “man bun”, literally! Haha!
25 Shut The Door
Uh oh—someone forgot to close the door while using the bathroom. But even worse, the girls taking the photo didn’t even check the background before snapping their picture.
If we had to guess, we’d say all these people are a little too comfortable with each other.
26 Flying Children
While this man thought he was getting a decent photo of himself, the parent in the background totally ruined it. On top of that, that seems like a very dangerous way to hold a child.
Let’s hope this whole family is doing okay.
These motorcyclists wanted to take a picture all together while they were riding.
However, this cyclist decided to join them in the picture by making a sign with his hand. After all, he rides on two wheels too, so it’s almost the same thing!
28 Ouch, Grandpa!
While this grandpa was happily sitting on a swing, his grandchild sneaked up behind him and was quickly smacked in the face.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like the grandpa even noticed.
29 Tipsy Golf Cart
While the photographer tried to capture a picture of this golfer in action, he couldn’t have predicted the disaster happening in the background.
We certainly hope no one was crushed under the weight of that falling golf cart.
30 Bunny Ears
While in general, it is the animals that photobomb the photos of humans, here, it is the opposite!
This dog was proudly posing for the picture when a man who was passing by decided to make him rabbit ears behind his head.
31 Weird Kid
A man wanted to take a nice picture of his girlfriend at a restaurant, but he didn’t plan what would happen in the background.
Indeed, a boy decided, at the same time, to squash his face into the glass behind the woman.
32 Giant Dog
We don’t know exactly what these two people wanted to photograph, but in our opinion, the result is not what they had in mind.
Indeed, this dog completely steals the show! Because of the perspective of the picture, this little dog seems to be huge, and it looks like the two people are looking at it, amazed.
33 Who’s There?
In South America, it is not uncommon to come across llamas in the mountains.
Here are two of them who seem very intrigued by the photographer who ventured into their habitat. Who’s there?
34 Striking A Pose
All these three young women wanted was a nice picture of them on the street with their drink. But a young man decided to interfere with their photo.
In our opinion, this photobomb makes the photo even better! This young man still took a pose, he made a real effort not to spoil the photo. He nailed that duck face!
35 Hey Guys!
Diving is definitely an incredible experience that is worth immortalizing, but what better way to do it than with a photo of what the divers saw while underwater?
This sea turtle thought she’d make this souvenir photo even more memorable by making a small appearance. Hey guys, that was fun! Take care!
36 Photobomb Not Intended
These two women wanted a beautiful photo on the beach together, to immortalize this moment together, which seems to be the wedding of the woman on the left.
However, at the time of the photograph, a dog jumped in front of the camera. From the look on its face, however, it seems to have quickly realized that it had just photobombed the photo. Sorry guys, that was not intended!
37 Happy Horse
Was this woman coming back from a nice long ride with this horse? Or is this horse just very happy to have company?
Either way, he couldn’t look prouder to be in the picture. Here’s a great smile for the camera!
It was out of the question that this beluga did not attend this magnificent wedding.
Besides, this man doesn’t seem to have a groomsman. Problem solved! See how proud this beluga is to be there!
39 So Commited
Every opportunity is good to take a beautiful Insta-worthy photo of ourself, especially when traveling.
These three strangers, however, wanted to add a little humor to this woman’s photo, and it looks like she’s not unhappy with it!
40 Just Passing By
This man just wants to enjoy his day at the beach wearing his tiny bathing suit. He doesn’t care about anything else.
Especially not those newlyweds who try to take a nice family picture. At least it will give them a funny story to tell!
41 Here’s A Rooster
Bali, Indonesia, is filled with breathtaking scenery, and Pura Lempuyang Luhur temple is no exception. This place is also full of roosters and hens.
So, this woman took this beautiful photo there, quite symmetrical and poetic. Did she notice that a rooster was standing just to her left, though?
42 Royal Photobomb
This man and woman were having a great time while working for the Invictus Games.
Prince Harry is a regular at the Invictus Games, and he decided to photobomb their picture while he was passing by. What a prankster!
43 Happy Seal
This person wanted to photograph a group of emperor penguins, but a baby seal also wanted to be part of the picture. He seems to be much too happy to be there!
But besides this happy seal, are we the only ones who had to look twice to understand that on the left, there’s two penguins standing very well aligned rather than one huge penguin a bit strange?
44 I Want A Drink
You would expect a child to squash their face into a window, because that’s the kind of strange thing children do, for no reason.
But here, it’s a grown man who squashed his face into the window. This man really wants a drink, no doubt about it!
45 Lying And Drinking
This woman wanted to take a nice picture of herself on the beach, posing in a cute way, with a glass in her hand.
However, it is definitely the couple on her left who steals the show. Here is a gentleman who knows how to take care of his girlfriend!
46 Um, Hello?
We don’t know what this photographer was doing at the time, but clearly he is missing an important moment.
This mouflon seems to be saying, “Um, hello? Am I the one you were looking for? I’m right here though!”
47 Flying By
Generally, it is the passers-by who make it difficult to take pictures when we visit very touristic places.
Here, however, while this man wanted a picture of himself in front of the Milan Cathedral, it was instead a pigeon that flew directly in front of his face at the time of the shot.
48 Dusty Background
This married couple wanted dust in the air in the background to make their photo more beautiful.
So the best man did what was needed, but unfortunately, it didn’t quite go as planned.
49 Double Chin
This couple just wanted a sweet selfie at a concert. But the red-headed girl in the background was not having it.
We’re not sure what she has against couple’s photos, but she clearly looks very, very unhappy.
50 You Up?
This cat is obviously very clingy. He can’t even let his owner take a photo without sneaking his head into the background.
Let’s hope his photobomb didn’t wake up this sleeping beauty.
51 It’s Like Riding A Bike…
While these men snapped a quick selfie, they managed to capture something quite strange lurking in the background.
Did that person forget how to ride a bike? How are they even peddling in that position? These and more questions will unfortunately remain unanswered.
52 Gold Digger
While this cute duo was focused on their couple’s photo, the guy behind them was focused on digging for gold.
We’re not sure if he found anything up his nose, but he did manage to ruin a perfectly good selfie.
At first glance, this photo looks totally normal. But suddenly, the man in the background looks like he somehow has the arms of Christ the Redeemer.
While he’s definitely not Jesus, his perfectly placed position certainly makes for a memorable photo.
54 Evil Clown
Aw, look at this. Just a cute photo of some kids out to eat, right? Wrong!
What should be a sweet photo quickly becomes terrifying through the evil, masked clown in the background. He’ll definitely be appearing in our nightmares tonight.
55 Beware Of Belugas
This little girl just wanted a picture in front of the Beluga whales. Unfortunately, the Beluga whale wanted to eat her.
Thank goodness the glass was there to offer some protection.
56 Kiss, Kiss
Imagine the surprise of these pals when they took a look at the photo they snapped together. Rather than a cute picture while out and about, the friends were left with a photo that heavily features a bearded man blowing a kiss in the background.
That’s definitely not a picture they’re going to put up anywhere.
57 Biggest Photobomb
Generally speaking, a photobomb in a photo is created by a single person or animal, or even of a strange object.
However, these four friends had a family photobomb! Indeed, the whole family sitting in the back posed to appear in their photo.
58 Scooter Girl
This photo has in fact become a viral meme. The woman’s name is Kenyatta Jefferson and she unwillingly photobombed this photo of a groom and his groomsmen during their photoshoot in downtown Omaha during the College World Series.
The group of men found this moment so funny that they did everything they could to find the woman using social medias, and they succeeded!
59 You Weren’t Invited, Buddy
What was meant to be a beautiful couple photo was somewhat spoiled by a horse that was far too motivated to be part of the shot.
While the man doesn’t seem to have realized anything, the woman looks at the horse with a strange look. You were not invited to pose with us, buddy!
60 Just Found The Gorilla
It can sometimes be difficult to find the animals in their enclosure when visiting a zoo. This man, however, was able to find the gorilla, despite its high shelter.
From the look on the gorilla’s face, he didn’t expect to have his picture taken at that moment! You can easily read the astonishment on his face.
