The act of photobombing has been a tradition that began even before social media, with analog cameras and old school film. It is a tradition that has since been carried over with the digital age with cellphone picture and digital cameras. But it seems that photobombing is not just for people anymore. This dog in Japan was able to photobomb street view pictures taken for Google Maps.
The dog was able to photobomb pictures because it followed a Google Street View truck. The dog was able to sneak in the pictures taken of streets around the Kumage District in Kagoshima Prefecture in Japan. The prefectures if found in the south western part of the country. The tireless dog was able to follow the truck for several blocks resulting in the dog appearing in several of the street view pictures.
The determined dog was able to photobomb at least 5 pictures with four of them having the canine completely within the photo. The curious dog was able to follow the truck, even when the vehicle reached a dead end and stopped. Although the dog was eventually bored and stopped following the truck, he did have an entertaining day and is sure to entertain a lot more people if and when they find him all over the Google maps street view photos.
The dog in Japan is just the latest animal that has taken to photobombing. Last year, Fiona the hippo went viral for photobombing a few tourists that visited her zoo.
