Mr Ridiculously Photogenic Guy

Zeddie Little was running in the 2012 Cooper River Bridge Run when computer programmer Will King snapped a photograph of him. He uplaoded it to Facebook and Flickr where one of his friends named Zeddie ‘Mr Ridiculously Photogenic Guy’. King then uploaded the picture onto Reddit with the caption “My friend calls him ‘Mr Ridiculously Photogenic Guy'”.

It was the day after when Mashable began turning it into a meme phase, posting this image:

I cannot find a valid website to link you to, if you find one, please let me know. Thanks.

McKayla Maroney was not impressed after missing out on a gold medal and having to settle for a silver in the Olympics. Her meme took the internet by storm.
