A Photobombed Proposal: the Meteoric Rise of InTheWay Guy
Some internet memes arise so fast and so strong that they burn out quickly. Here's the story of one that exploded just this morning on reddit, and only time will tell how long it lasts. It starts with a proposal no one who's seen it will ever forget.
Voice actor Nick Landis took his girlfriend Erika to Walt Disney World a couple of weeks ago to propose to her. As the big moment was being photographed, this poor soul stepped in front and immediately realized what he did. It's a moment that will live forever, because Erika posted it to reddit, where it made the front page this morning.
But that was just the beginning. The tourist had apparently been seen before, in other times and places.
In fact, the poor as-yet-anonymous soul unknowingly achieved the ultimate honor: his own subreddit. There are probably many more photos there by now.
Everyone involved thanks flipflipflipflipflop for making it easy to have some fun with this. And don't worry about Nick and Erika. They got another photograph. We wish them all the happiness in the world.
