      this one from NLD (The Netherlands):
      16 april 2012 's Werelds meest fotogenieke man (video)
      (EditieNL / rtl.nl)
      www.rtl.nl/components/actueel/editienl/nieuws/2012/w16/de...
      Meedoen aan een marathon en vervolgens de meest fotogenieke man ter wereld worden. Het overkwam Zeddie Little.
      De knapperd werd door een wildvreemde gefotografeerd terwijl hij de marathon in Charlestone VS liep.
      'Facebomb'
      Het plaatje werd mega populair op Flickr en is inmiddels miljoenen keren bekenen. Een Amerikaanse website spotte de foto en bestempelde hem als 'Facebomb'.
      Wereldberoemd
      Zeddie wordt nu bij verschillende grote Amerikaanse televisieshows uitgenodigd. De fotohunk kan er alleen maar om lachen...
      Bekijk hiernaast de video en oordeel zelf. (end)

      Flickr?
      Wenn man dieses Meme (oder jedes andere) begreifen möchte, sollte man sich nicht bei Flickr umschauen.
      Die Show findet (wie üblich) auf 4chan, Reddit und 9gag statt.
      Übrigens: Wer übersetzt "ridculously" mit "verdammt" ? Gibt es da einen einleuchtenden Grund für?
      .
      Erika Fuchs (ntroP) - 12.04.2012 13:37 Uhr
      Zureffend?
      ridiculous adj. ; irrwitzig, lächerlich, ridikül.
      Hätte man das meme "damn" oder "fu*****" "photogenic guy" benannt, sicherlich..
      In diesem Falle allerdings wäre "absurd" die bessere Wahl gewesen, wenn man schon dem Durchschnittsleser nicht mehr zutraut zwei Adjektive auf einmal zu begreifen.
      ..
      ristoph Wirtz (benutzer11) - 11.04.2012 17:19 Uhr
      Zutreffend
      Zitat: "Übrigens: Wer übersetzt "ridculously" mit "verdammt" ? Gibt es da einen einleuchtenden Grund für? " ? Zitatende.
      Der Grund dafür ist, dass es sich um die zutreffende Übersetzung handelt. (end)

      And now pictures like this have started popping up:

      If the interest in this photo continues to hold stead into the next year I'm excited to think about the kinds of things I'll be seeing at the next bridge run!

      Hey @ ! I took the picture of Mr. Ridiculously Photogenic Asian guy above. The picture seems to have turned into a meme in it's own right. I was browsing online, and, weirdly enough, somebody had rendered it (by hand) as an oil painting.

      Go figure :P

      Why are all of those ugly people in the front blocking the gorgeous Zeddie Little?

      Guess who was spotted again during the 2013 race:

      Amazingly enough I coincidentally snapped a photo of the woman running next to him in the original as well:
