Tiger Woods Photo Makes “Cigar Guy” Famous

When I first saw the photo, I wasn’t drawn in my the artistic nature of the shot or the way that the cameraman was in the right place at the right time. Nope…it was the man on the right side of the picture with the Groucho Marx style mustache and a cigar hanging out of his mouth.

Now, he’s the talk of the Internet! Many believe that he was edited into the photo…but I don’t think so. Either way, it’s an awesome picture that only came to be because Tiger Woods flubbed his shot.

Have you seen all the famous photos that “Cigar Guy” has been pasted into? Really good stuff! Rupesh Shingadia, also known as “Cigar Guy” will live on forever…or at least for his 15 minutes of fame!

From Yahoo!:

It’s the shot that launched a photo-editing frenzy: One image is of the now famous Tiger Woods photo, except everyone, including Tiger, has been turned into the Cigar Guy. Check it out here. There’s the Cigar Guy on a Beatles album cover. And the Cigar Guy taking out Sonny Liston.

While the original picture is incredible, it may be even more memorable for taking on a life of its own. A photographic hole-in-one.
