Most internet memes usually involve animals, famous figures or people doing some weird pose, but rarely does a meme become popular because it features a ridiculously good-looking guy.

Photographed during the 2012 Cooper River Bridge Run in South Carolina, a runner unknown to the photographer, smiles for the camera and manages to really stand out from the crowd — because he looks immensely photogenic. (We don’t usually look that good while running.)

Since being shared on Reddit, the original photo has received over a million views on Flickr. Everyone agrees the man looked good, but the dashing dude has also gone viral and in just over a day, produced countless PhotoShopped edits turning him into the hottest internet meme since Feminist Ryan Gosling.

Here are a few of the many, many meme variations the internet folk have made about ‘Ridiculously Photogenic Guy.”

 

And here’s one that doesn’t need words to make the photo any better.

Seriously, the guy even makes the women look better! According to a Charleston news source, the “ridiculously photogenic man” above is Zeddie Little, a 25-year-old from New York, NY. So there you go, a guy who probably was popular anyway just got even more popular thanks to this meme. Sigh, some men just get all the luck.
