They Posted These Pics Without Checking The Background First – And Deeply Regretted It Later! 31 Viral Fails You Have To See!
We’ve all done it – you take a nice photo of yourself or your friends and quickly post it online, not realizing what’s happening behind you. While background fails can be hilarious, they can also be downright embarrassing if you don’t notice them before sharing the pic with the world.
From nudity to messiness and everything in between, awkward backgrounds have a way of making themselves the focus of otherwise great photos. No one is immune – even celebrities have been caught with some cringe-worthy backdrops in their social media posts.
In this article, we’ve rounded up 31 of the most shocking times people completely missed the background before posting a picture. Some of these photos went massively viral for their hilarious or bizarre backgrounds, while others quickly got deleted once the mistake was realized. Either way, they provide a good reminder to always check what’s behind you before snapping that selfie or group shot. From nude strangers to violent brawls and more, these backgrounds range from funny to mortifying. Think your background fails were bad? Wait until you see this list!
At first glance, this photo appears to be a typical graduation portrait of a proud graduate posing with his friends, ready to embark on the next chapter of his life. But take a closer look at the background, and you’ll spot something that’s far from appropriate for such a dignified ceremony snapshot.
In the reflection of the framed picture, there’s a half-naked photographer taking the photo! Was this forgetful grad so excited to send the pic to his high school crush that he didn’t realize he was in his underwear? Or did he deliberately choose this inauspicious moment for a wardrobe change? Either way, his white boxers are now immortalized for all to see.
We can only imagine how this photograph even happened in the first place. Perhaps after seeing the framed picture of himself hanging in his parents’ house, the oblivious graduate decided to snap a photo to send to his high school crush. Whipping out his phone while dressed down for laundry day, he failed to check his reflection before hitting send. Little did he know he was revealing far more than that proud grin!
Let this viral pic serve as a hilarious reminder to always check for embarrassing reflections before snapping important photos! You never know what eye-catching mishaps might end up stealing the focus away from your subject. This graduate learned that lesson the hard way!
Another day, another wannabe influencer taking glam mirror selfies for the ‘gram. Or so it appears…but not everything is as perfect as it seems upon first glance at this photo. Take a closer look at the background, and you’ll spot a silly photobomber who’s had enough of her social media antics.
Outside the window, a dog is smashing his face against the glass, mouth agape in a weird and wild way. We can’t help but laugh at the timing of this dog’s funny face perfectly positioned right above his owner’s shoulder. It’s as if he deliberately wanted to ruin yet another one of her glam shots!
We have so many questions about the backstory here. How many takes did it take before the girl noticed her dog’s grumpy grimace? Was he begging to go inside, or just begging for the photos to end? Unfortunately his human was too distracted by her own image to pay attention to the background drama. Let this viral pic serve as a reminder to watch for photobombing pets before posting selfies! The results can be way more entertaining than any filter.
