Don’t you hate it when you’re just trying to take a nice skinny dip and the obnoxious teenage paparazzi put you in the limelight? Me too.
Jillian Henry, a 17-year-old that is soon to be a senior at South Eugene High School, and her friend Elena Nesbit showed up to the Willamette River near Mount Pisgah hoping to snap some senior pictures. Suddenly something appeared in the middle of their photoshoot. It was a man who went out to enjoy some bonding time with his dog in the river. Like the pup, the wild man had literally no clothes on. My favorite part is that the man looks totally oblivious to having his picture taken, and Henry looks clueless that a naked man is in the background. It was truly a candid moment. Why Elena didn’t quit taking pictures once the man came onto the scene is unclear.
Naturally, like any other 17-year-old girl, Henry tweeted the picture with the caption, “love my senior pics.” The tweet has about 21,000 retweets and 66,000 likes. To see it, enter at your own risk here.
“I posted it and was super excited when it got to just a few hundred favorites, and then I went swimming and was out of cell service for a couple hours and when I got back into service it was at a few thousand and just kept getting more and more,” she told the Oregonian/OregonLive by text on Monday. “I never expected it to get that big.”
I really wish I knew why the man was hanging out at the river naked so I could back him up. But hey, who am I to judge? Everyone has his or her own style preferences. He just prefers his birthday suit. And thanks to him, an innocent girl now has the best senior pictures of all time. He’s famous and she’s famous. It’s a win-win..
