Sid Frisjes took this photo of himself near the Eiffel Tower on his visit to Paris. He asked the internet for some help photoshopping the Eiffel Tower underneath his fingernail and this is what he got in return.
For reasons unknown he put forth a request to the Internet’s ultimate pranksters—4chan—asking for their help. The anonymous collective gladly obliged, and Internet artists the world over have been getting in on the action ever since.
There’s a huge archive of the doctored responses on a Facebook page called mott.pe and a number of sites that have already picked up some of the best. As with so many Internet jokes, the replies get more abstract and bizarre the longer it continues, and ‘Eiffel Tower finger guy’ is no exception. Below you will find 40 images that made me chuckle.
