There is no greater pleasure in life than to ruin someone else’s photo. If it’s a selfie you are destroying, it is even better.
Be careful while reading this! The daily selfie will never feel the same once you get to know the awful stuff that can happen while you prep. Say hello to insecurities and the constant feeling that someone is stalking you and trying to creep behind you before the shot.
It should be a no-brainer, but it doesn’t hurt to say it again. Always double check the photos you are eager to unleash in social media. Unless you want to feel the burn, try to remove any funny stuff going on in the background.
These 17 selfie photobombs will teach you to be suspicious of any child, animal, or random weird dude just waiting to ruin the experience for you.
1. Perfect Timing
A quick look reveals nothing wrong with this selfie. Just another dog is eager to share with the rest of the canine world its fabulous haircut.
Wait a second! Since when the man’s best friend got so fancy? What you are seeing is a phenomenon which rarely occurs in modern photography.
The perfect timing made this selfie fail so hard it won. Of course, there will always be the ones that see a different picture.
Genetics is quite advanced nowadays, and no one would be surprised for people to opt for a complete face transplant.

The next photobombed pic will teach about the hazards involved with taking a selfie during baseball practice.
2. Ball Spoils Selfie Seconds Before Impact
You might be a smoking hot blonde, but physics is unforgiven.
The unsuspecting victim took what looks like her last selfie. Although the hit wasn’t deadly, the scare will make her think twice about ever turning her back at the action.
Take this selfie situation and think of the glory days when you had to ask someone else to take your photo. The incident would have been improbable back then.
We know what goes through your mind. Was that loose ball accidental, or part of a plot to get the girl’s attention? Chances are we will never find out.
Go ahead and search photos of her in the hospital. In the meantime, we count another poor soul that will never take selfies again.
As for the next photobomb, the man had a good motif to be rude with the girl.
3. Brutal Man Doesn’t Understand Selfie Culture
An important part of those that photobomb selfies on a regular basis come from older generations.
It’s not hard to figure out why. Selfies are the symbol of people born in the late 1990s, alongside ripped jeans caps with “Nerd” written on them. Imagine doing the same things decades ago. You would be crucified on your high school locker room before explaining your motifs.
Just take a closer look at the outraged shopper. The unlucky guy compared his youth years and reached a painful conclusion. He was busting his nuts in Vietnam at the same age when today’s teens wander around the mall with their expensive smartphones.
Don’t listen to scientists when they talk about the generation gap being bad. That man was entitled to smash the phone and walk away like nothing happened.
Stay tuned as the next selfie photobomb went viral the moment it moved online.
4. The Royal Photobomb
When Queen Elizabeth accidently ends up as the background for your selfie, you can’t be something else other than happy.
However, the photo is creepy enough to cause a fuss. What was the 90-year-old doing inside that walled enclosure? Why is she looking back at the girls like a seasoned villain?
Word goes that the Queen considers selfies and the people taking them a curiosity of nature. When you live long enough to see photography evolve from that blemish sepia to high resolution, and back to low res for a vintage look on Instagram, you can’t keep it straight.
You got a good laugh until now. It’s time to learn that selfies can bring you a lot of problems if you take them in inappropriate situations.
5. Photobombed By The Law
This guy thought he got away with it.
Just after breaking the speed record on that stretch of road, he stopped for a great selfie to share the good news. The unsuspecting teen had a shock when the police officer appeared on the display of his smartphone.
No, the long arm of the law was not there just to photobomb the selfie. Equipped with a radar gun, the law enforcer caught the young men speeding and ignoring his sign to stop.
However, there is one detail only the experienced can observe. Are you able to read the youngster’s face? It says “my father is a lawyer and I can easily sue you for photobombing my selfie.”
Drivers are photobombed not only by the police. Otherwise friendly wildlife messes with motorists just to ruin their shots of the landscape.
6. The Moose Pushes His Agenda
You can’t say no to a moose!
Whether he is lifting his front foot to catch a ride or offering “moose stuff” in exchange for money, no car window is robust enough to keep his antlers away. The only option is to give in to this creepy hijacker and his unusual demands.
The driver was lucky. With mating season ended, the animal only wanted to fool around in the most rudimentary way possible – ruin a selfie.
Can you see the sweat pouring down that man’s face? He is wondering what comes next. Everyone knows you can take three or four selfies before the beast gets bored.
Ok, so the next selfie photobomb is not exactly safe for work. However, it’s an accurate depiction of reality.
7. When You Want To Bomb Something Else Rather Than Than A Photo
Being stuck in the friendzone hurts more than they tell you in school.
Just take a look at that poor fellow. The girl is so comfortable with him in the background of her sexy selfies that she will not bother to crop the photos.
She wants to let everyone know he got her back and will always be there. “Do I look hot enough, silly?” She uses her male companion to test the level of hotness just before delivering the photos to her actual boyfriend.
As for the young man only allowed to watch, you can imagine the war of secession going on in his mind. Remain a friend or risk years in jail for rape?
Sometimes, the one photobombing a selfie becomes the protagonist.
8. Selfie Catches Cat Plotting To Take Over The World
Did they tell you conspiracy theories are fake, and the rumors spread by delusional individuals?
Take a better look at this piece of evidence. People suspected cats because of their unusual behavior, but now it’s in the open. Game on!
Our feline friends want nothing more than to take over the world. Yes, you heard right! Is that mean face telling you a different story? Spend some time to sense the metaphor.
Innocent masters are raising their cute balls of far without being aware of the danger. Turn your back once, and the cat is relieved to give in to its true feelings.
We will remain in the animal kingdom just to show that our silent friends have a weird mind of their own.
9. Who Wears It Better?
At first glance, there is nothing wrong in this picture.
A strange coincidence made it possible for the shark and the human to share a similar smile. For those with a lesson learned, there are no such things as coincidences.
Just go ahead and ask the thousands of swimmers that last exit the waters with one or more limbs missing. Repeated contact with humans taught this predator how to look less frightening.
Put a smile on your face, and the unsuspecting victim will perceive you as not dangerous. It’s evolution, baby, and we might be getting arrogant to the point of ignoring the obvious.
Never smile back at creatures held at SeaWorld. You are only fueling their evil efforts to learn and become more efficient hunters.
As we’ve seen until now, taking the average selfie can produce unexpected encounters. Nothing will prepare you for the next selfie photobomb that geared towards the paranormal.

Go ahead and see the rage the next selfie captured.
11. She A Real Menace On Wheels When She Starts Taking Selfies
When you are on public roads, you have to keep at least one hand on the wheel, especially if you are a woman.
It might sound sexist, but what she got in exchange was well deserved. With one hand in the air and the other holding the phone, who the hell is supposed to keep the car straight?
The unsuspecting girl was well outside her lane when the car almost collided with parallel traffic. The look on the young man’s face is priceless.
Call that girl lucky. Her selfie might have been photobombed, but it could have ended entirely different. It made us curious. Did someone ever took a selfie with a car crash as a background?

Not even an unexpected pregnancy can change that. The single mom was hoping for a photo good enough for her Tinder account when little Mattew in the back suddenly put on his picture day face.
At least one element is right. The adolescent mom is wearing a seatbelt while driving and the toddler is not sitting in her lap, waiting to be propelled through the windshield at the first break.
