Remember the "distracted boyfriend meme"? A couple walking past a hot woman where the girlfriend catches the guy staring at the other woman's butt?
The couple in the picture went viral and the meme was everywhere. People across the internet made multiple parodies of this meme. After all this, though, one man in Twitter decided to uncover the truth. The entire thing was staged but DAYUM! It's a heck of a brilliant story.
Andrew J. Abernathy is a digital marketer who spends most of his time looking at stock images. One one of these seemingly dull days, something grabbed his attention. In one of the stock images he was looking at, there was a familiar face.
It was the girlfriend from the 'distracted boyfriend meme'! The photographer of both this new picture and the original one that became a meme is Antonio Guillem. Turns out, Guillem had a little fun while taking the stock images and a complete story emerged after some digging.
Abernathy suspected as much and he found the complete story on Shutterstock and, in true dramatic fashion, the meme that we are all so familiar with is just 1 part of an entire soap opera in the couple's life.
So without further ado, we present to you: "Distracted Boyfriend The Movie" in the form of Tweets by Andrew Abernathy. Enjoy!
