It’s empirically true that everyone on the internet (which is everyone I know) loves a good photobombing. And it’s also widely agreed upon that celebrities photobombing is even more fun than regular photobombing. (Jennifer Lawrence, you have my utmost respect!) But if you wanna know what the most fun thing of all is? Trolling the beautiful beaches of Gulf Shores, Ala., with Vinny Guadagnino of “Jersey Shore” and “The Show With Vinny” (some choice “Show With Vinny” quotes here at Remote Control, by the way) at Hangout Fest, asking the extremely kind festivalgoers (Seriously, the Hangout Fest’s “Be nice or go home” motto is the truth — people here are ultra nice, and it’s starting to rub off on me) if I could take their picture, and then having Vinny pull a Kanye in front of the camera.
Watch Vinny photobomb festival-goers at Hangout Fest after the jump!
Vinny’s a special guest correspondent at the 2013 Hangout Fest (along with Chrissy Teigen, Dillon Francis and Katherine Webb), and before he introduced Afrojack’s beast of a set on a blazing-hot Friday afternoon, I posed as an MTV producer (ha!), and asked innocent Hangout Fest-goers standing in line for food (fish tacos = no joke), enjoying the white sandy beach, and chilling on the grass watching The Breeders if we could take their photo for MTV. Again, because folks here are legitimately nice, they happily agreed, and as I yelled “cheese,” Vinny (disguised in a straw hat while hiding in plain sight among the Hangout crowd), jumped in at the last second, nailing the arms-wide-open “woot, life!” photobomb stance take after take after take. Even better than the full set of photos of Vinny photobombing people, which I now have on my phone and may also print out and frame, is the photobombed victims’ priceless reactions, which, naturally, we caught on camera for your edification at home.
Watch the jaws hit the sand as Vinny photobombs, and watch out when you’re at Hangout Fest next year — you never know when Vinny may be lurking on the next beach towel over, just waiting to bust up into your photo.
