Remember that awesome photo I posted a couple of days ago of Tiger Woods hitting a ball right into a camera? Well, as cool as that shot was, it seems that someone else from that picture is quickly becoming an Internet sensation.
Who, you ask?
The Cigar Guy, of course!
That weird dude smoking a stogie off to the side of the photo is now a bonafide meme. Now, he’s getting photoshopped into other pictures — kind of like a Where’s Waldo with a headwrap.
It may be a total hoax, too. The theories are piling up.
Let’s analyze Cigar Guy a little bit to figure out who this character is. First up, the hair. This close up picture looks like the guy is wearing a wig – or just has a really bad hair style. There’s nothing very natural about the way the hair lays in the front, so that alone is a tipoff. And yes, that mustache could be authentic, but dang if it doesn’t look like Cigar Guy visited his local Halloween store and glued that thing to his face. Finally, the cigar – what’s the deal with that? It makes his face stand out even more among the golf fans, and like I said, you’ve got to have a gimmick. Some are noting that Cigar Guy may be dressing in costume to look like Spanish golfer Miguel Angel Jimenez. (via Babble).
So who is this Cigar Guy? No one knows. I’m sure the CIA is on the hunt for him, as well as VH1 producers so they can give him a reality show.
I wonder who will get to him first.
