It might seem simple enough, but the truth is that the art of the photobomb is not one to be taken lightly. In order to pull of the professional-level bomb, one must have amazing timing, the ability to sneak in and out unnoticed, lack of concern for the selfies of others, and a ridiculous facial expression prepared in advance. To put it bluntly: If photobombing could be an actual job, some people would definitely get paid more than others.
These people all found their perfect photobomb moment (although, some of them seem to be doing so unintentionally). For the rest, they've exacted a time-honored and incredible art form with aplomb, and for that, we shall be forever grateful. Check out the 25 professionals in the images below. If there's one person who knows exactly what they're doing, it's the guy in #9. He may not be human, but he's perfected his skills nonetheless.
#1. That feeling when mom wants you to do the laundry but you're busy taking a selfie.
And following her photobomb, she’s definitely going to make you fold your socks.
#2. Some of these are not like the other.
But we’ll admit it’s hard to tell who is photobombing who.
#3. Caught taking that awkward mirror selfie.
We’ve all been through this before.
#4. She's just happy to be here.
And they look like they never even saw it coming.
#5. Something about this feels wrong.
Not a cool place to photobomb, dude. Not cool at all.
