It started when Will King was snapping up pics of a local marathon. Most of the shots were what you’d expect: exhausted, flushed runners lucky to be hanging on, let alone looking photo-ready. But then, there He was. A man so photogenic the sun literally shined down on him, even after running a few dozen miles. Thus a star was born: Ridiculously Photogenic Guy.
Since then RPG has become a meme, usually centered around how splashing his glorious visage instantly makes any photo beautiful (some say he’s the Barney Stinson of reality). RPG has since been identified as Zeddie Little, a New Yorker who’s seeking work in PR. Something tells me he should get a job pretty soon.
He’s done a few interviews, has more than 66,000+ Likes on Facebook, and on top of being handsome enough to make millions swoon, it turns out he’s a pretty nice guy.
What was it that made RPG take off? I think it’s because, well, he’s happy. He was happy while running, happy to be a meme, happy to be around. Happiness on the internet? Now that’s meme-worthy.
