When People Forgot to Check the Background of Their Photos Before Posting

We are all taking and posting photos all the time. It’s become almost second nature to snap a pic of anything you find interesting. But as we all know, the internet is forever!

These people shared photos online without checking the background. And we’re pretty sure they learned their lesson afterwards. Check out these photos and what’s going on behind the scenes of the images. You might be surprised by what you find.

Three Is a Crowd

Two is company, but three’s a crowd. That saying has never been more true. If you’re searching this photo for what is out of place, look right in between this couple for a spooky surprise.

You’ll find two eyes staring right back at you! The best part of this photo is that apparently the original poster had it on their refrigerator for years before they realized the little peek-a-boo in between them.

Once You See It…

Once you see it, you won’t be able to unsee it. We’ll give you a hint: It has something to do with that man in the background. He’s innocently sitting in the background but it appears like something else entirely.

The woman’s belt blends right into his pants so it looks like he’s riding her like a horse! All he needs to complete the look is a cowboy hat!

Dad Photobomb

If you take selfies in your house you run the risk of your dad photobombing the experience. We can only imagine this girl’s reaction when she looked at her photo of hearse;f only to see her dad joining the party.

It’s a dad’s job to embarrass his daughter! We love that he posed for it and everything. That’ll teach her to not spend so much time taking selfies.

Flexing on Grandma

It’s become something of a cliche to flex your muscles for a photo. But, to each their own! What makes us laugh about this photo isn’t the man in the forefront at all. Rather, it’s what’s happening in the mirror.

Grandma looks to be extra supportive of her grandson. So much so that she is willing to take some photos of him for his dating profile. What are grandmas for if not to help you flex?

Trip to the Zoo With Grandma

Going to the zoo with grandma sounds like a perfectly innocent daytrip. See some animals, eat some ice cream, and learn about animal behaviors and habits.

This girl wanted a simple picture with these amazing giraffes, but they gave her a little more than she was bargaining for. They gave her a lesson in how baby giraffes are made. The photo is priceless!

Standing Out

We can’t be sure why all these ladies gathered at the beach. Maybe for a photoshoot? If that’s the case we can’t imagine that they planned on having that little visitor in the background.

His speedo doesn’t exactly blend in with the rest of the crowd pictured here. Was it coincidence that he wound up in this photo or did he walk back and forth more than once? You decide what’s more likely.

Don’t Look Back Grandma and Grandpa!

Grandma and Grandpa are nothing but smiles in this photo by the lake. They might not be so delighted if they turned around and saw the scene playing out right behind them.

In actuality, there are two couples featured in this photo. One smiling for the camera and one completely unbothered by the fact that they’re being filmed.We can’t help but wonder what the grandparents’ reactions were when they realized their innocent photo was not so innocent.

Cart Down

We have a few unanswered questions here. Obviously, we’d love to know how that golf cart ended up on its side. Did the man in the forefront hit a ball so hard that it tipped the cart? Unlikely.

But, we also have to wonder why the man is set up to hit a golf ball that simply isn’t there. Maybe he’s just deep in concentration. That would explain why he isn’t concerned about the cart falling on its side.

A Proud Father

It looks like this dapper young man is all dressed up for his school dance. What father wouldn’t be proud of this stellar look? He’s all grown up with a pink pocket square and a checkered vest to complete the outfit.

So, we’re not surprised that his dad wanted to take a picture of his son. But we don’t think he meant to be in the photo as well since he’s not as dressed up.Thanks a lot, dad!

Cats Will Be Cats

You can always count on cats to be in the places they’re not supposed to be, especially in the most inopportune moments. And we’ve learned that mirror pics tend to hide secrets in the background.

This is yet another piece of proof that bathroom mirror pics are not always the best idea. We’re not 100% sure if the cat is looking for something he lost in the toilet or if he’s going for a refreshing beverage.

Business On Top

We’ve heard of business in the front and party in the back. But have you heard of business on top and party on the bottom? Obviously, this man did not plan on having his bottom half pictured.

That’s the great thing about photos. You can show only what you want to show (as long as there’s not a mirror behind you. This man wanted to show off his snazzy coat but failed to realize he’d be showing off a little more than that.

Furry Photobomb

This is a photobomb you can’t even be upset at! Maybe this pup was tired of the girls taking pictures and wanted some love! Or, he might have just wanted to show off for the camera like they were.

Regardless, this has to be one of our favorite unsuspecting photobombers both for his timing and his pose.

A Very Scary Bunny

At a glance you wouldn’t see anything wrong with this photo. It’s just a run of the mill family photo of two brothers hanging out with the Easter Bunny. But, this photo has the potential to be the premise of the next big horror film.

We’re not sure if the man inside the bunny suit meant to look this scary or if it was an accident. All we know is that if we were those kids we’d be running for the hills with fear! We commend their bravery.

The Revealing Coffee

Most of us need our morning coffee to get moving for our day. This particular cup of coffee is revealing a lot about how this person really feels. 

Advertisement

Maybe next time they should do a check of the photo before they hit “post” to avoid this kind of embarrassment. We wonder if someone let them know about the little hidden message in their morning cup of Joe.

Photobomb from Jason Voorhees

It’s nice that Jason Voorhees took some time out of his busy schedule of terrorizing people to come congratulate this happy couple. We wonder if he’s on the bride or groom’s side of the aisle.

Or maybe he wasn’t incited but just thought he’d stop by. Whatever the case, he certainly adds something to this romantic photo of the happy couple. Hopefully he didn’t scare any guests away.

Let Me In!

We imagine this pup was waiting forever for his owner to let him in but she was too busy taking photos of herself to notice! So, he had no choice but to make himself a little more obvious.

She might have been too busy to notice at the time she was taking the pictures, but we can only imagine her surprise when she looked back on them and saw her dog’s photobomb. That’s quite a face he’s making.

The Perfect Family Photo

This cute family almost achieved the perfect family photo. The fall leaves, the coordinated cozy outfits, all three children looking at the camera, and they even got the family dog in the pic!

But, they probably didn’t plan on the dog doing its business while they were capturing a sweet family moment in time. Well, at least they’ll always look back on it and laugh!

Secrets, Secrets

Gender reveals are all the rage and have only become more and more elaborate as the years go on. Lots of people like to keep the gender of their baby a secret until they reveal it in some spectacular way.

This person is obviously not too great at keeping secrets because the gender is right there in the photo. Oops! This probably wasn’t the “It’s a girl!” moment the couple was hoping for.

The Door is Giving Her Away

People are becoming experts at identifying photoshop. One of the major giveaways is when something is warped in the background. This woman definitely got caught in the act because she pretended like she had no idea what the commenters were talking about.

The door behind her is completely warped, as is her arm. Busted! She feigned innocence as if she had no idea what they were talking about. This is another reminder to check the background before posting!

Vacation Family Photo

This is another example of family photos not going exactly to plan. This family took a beach vacation and wanted to commemorate the trip with a family photo! But, the surfer behind them had other plans.

We can’t be certain if he did this on purpose to make us laugh or if he actually just fell off of his board at the exact right time. Either way it’s a funny photobomb we’re sure the family could appreciate.

Comic Relief

We’re not sure if this is comedy or if this is just plain gross. The friend in the front was all ready for a cool picture of him and his friend by the water but the guy behind him had other plans.

Source: reddit

It looks like he needed to relieve himself but we sure hope it was just a water bottle and this was a prank. If not, he sure knows how to ruin a photo!

Advertisement

Driving Privileges Revoked

We can definitely see why this person’s driving privileges were revoked. If you’re not sure why,  take a look just beyond the letter he’s holding.

Advertisement

This person is driving 40 MPH while reading the note about all of his driving penalties! It’s no wonder he’s getting his privileges revoked. Drive safe out there!

A Sneak Attack

This series of photos sends a shiver down my spine. That monster spider came out of nowhere! You can see in both of the girls’ faces that they slowly start to realize that the moving black speck is a real life spider.

Advertisement

Source: pinterest

We can understand why the girl screams because it is awfully unsettling that it crawled out from right under their heads but we want to tell her to close her mouth. What if it crawls inside?

Advertisement

Baby Overboard

At a glance there is nothing too abnormal about this image until you take a closer peak at the background. The man in the foreground probably did a double take when he looked back on the picture. What is that man holding the baby doing?

Advertisement

Source: reddit

It appears he is about to throw the baby over his head! We’re sure he was just playing with the kid and all was well but this photo was captured at the exact right time to make us stop in our tracks.

Advertisement

Where’s Waldo?

We thought Waldo was supposed to be hard to find! He’s right in the middle of this photo clear as day. You can’t miss him!

Advertisement

Source: someecards

The real mystery is why this man was dressed as Waldo at the restaurant. It doesn’t look like anyone else is dressed up so we can’t assume this was taken on Halloween. Maybe it’s just his daily outfit!

Football Game Photobomb

Sporting events are some of the best places to photobomb. People are always taking pictures in the crowds and there are tons of opportunities to sneak into the background of someone else’s photo.

Advertisement

Source: someecards

We wonder if these girls were disappointed when they looked at their photos to see this young man ruining all the pics. They might have thought the photos were ruined but we think it only makes them better!

Wait… What’s Your Name?

Everyone loves a team jersey! It’s the best way to show support for the team or player you love. But, we must remember that when we take photos in the mirror, letters will be read in the reverse order.

This girl’s name is Lana and she’s number 1! Get your head out of the gutter if you thought it said anything other than that.

Bathroom Selfies For the Win

Here is another perfect example of why we don’t take selfies in the bathroom mirror. You’re bound to catch something that you didn’t mean to. And once it’s posted, it’s posted for all the internet to see and enjoy.

This poor young woman caught herself in a pretty vulnerable position. We can only hope she learned her lesson after this one. Selfies are for outside of the bathroom.

Your Mirror Betrayed You!

This young woman was seeking to have a photo in which it looked like her boyfriend was trying to sneak a photo of her. “No, babe stop!” But, once again, the mirror betrays her and we see this photo for what it really is.

She took the photo herself. Not to mention, she was on the toilet when she took the picture so we can all see that no boyfriend was involved here.
