... ... ... Huh? Where am I? Oh, yeah, sorry ... just got lost their for a minute. But how could you not? So who is he?

Ridiculously Photogenic Guy is Zeddle Little, a 25-year-old who lives in New York City now but is originally from Charleston, South Carolina, which is where the photo was snapped. Little was captured in his heavenly moment at the Cooper River Bridge Run, a 10K, by amateur photographer Will King, a computer programmer.

"I didn't think overall the picture was that great, but I knew that he looked good, so I went ahead and uploaded it," King says. One of his friends on Facebook commented on the picture, saying, "I dub this Ridiculously Photogenic Guy," and King decided to share the photo - with a short explanation of his friend's comment - on Reddit. He posted it to the site around lunchtime on Tuesday, and within an hour, it had garnered 300,000 views, he says. The last he checked, the photo had gotten over 1.2 million hits, with people worldwide adding their own captions.

Indeed, Ridiculously Photogenic Guy is the Internet's newest meme (though another was probably just created right now), and might be the first to emerge from the world of running. Already, it has its own page on both quickmeme and Know Your Meme.
