Model striking poses on the beach gets hilariously photobombed by unsuspecting bloke

A model has been photobombed by an unsuspecting bloke while she was in the middle of striking a few poses on the beach.

Kristina Mendonca's video originally went viral back in 2019 when she first posted the video, however, thanks to Reddit, the video is seeing a resurgence.

With over 20 million views, the clip features Mendonca in a red bikini at Sydney's Bondi Beach, showing off her tan.



Although, attention quickly shifts from the model to the background, where a guy emerges from the water clearly very happy to be at the beach.

Speaking with Yahoo News at the time, Mendonca said: “I just hope that people don’t hate and know that this video was posted for the simple fact that this beautiful, sweet man had no idea he was photobombing a photoshoot.

“He looked like he was having the best day ever!”

Mendonca also added that she wanted to post the video because she likes to keep her Instagram real.


“Instagram is flooded with so many of the ‘perfect shots’,” the Australian model said.

“I say show more of the behind the scenes moments and real photos.

“Usually the photographer will edit people out of the background but I like to show everyone on my Instagram what things are really like.”

She added: “I love that I am making people laugh all around the world."

After being reposted to the r/IAmTheMainCharacter subreddit recently, the video has already received over 1.2k upvotes.

Many of the commenters on Mendonca’s post have pointed out similarities between the photobomber and a character from Attack of the Titans.

“He’s even got the uncanny [Titian] smile,” wrote one commenter.


While others joked that he was really the scene stealer.

“It kind of spoils the view of the happy guy enjoying the beach,” one comment read.

“I hate when vapid supporting characters get more screen time than the main character,” another wrote. “Hate to see our heroes put in the background.”

While another joked about the Australian model saying: “She comes from a land down under, where women pose and old men steal their thunder.”


“What’s his @?” asked another.

Although sadly, for anyone wondering, the internet hasn’t been able to track down the lad.

Hopefully, though, he’s still smiling on a beach somewhere, living his best life.
