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.
