Best Of THON 2013: Photobombs

Everyone loves a good old fashioned photobomb, and when there’s 15,000 people in one building it’s basically a photobomb goldmine. Inflatable toys, costumes, and sleep deprivation led to some of the most memorable photobombs we’ve seen in a while. Whether they are intentional or not, here are some of the best photobombs from THON 2013.

1. Although a shadow almost blocks her face, this girl  has got some serious game. How far back is she like 10-15 feet?!

12. Quite an enthusiastic unintentional photobomber we’ve got here! Who knew the BJC was filled with such long distance photobombing experts? Thanks for the submission Miles Edmiston!
