Highlights: Interview with Zeddie Little AKA Ridiculously Photogenic Guy

Written by Jayvee Fernandez

Latest Internet meme sensation Ridiculously Photogenic Guy aka “Zeddie Little” (photogenicguy) is doing an IAmA on Reddit. For those unfamiliar with IAmA, it is abbreviation for “I am A” and is a cue to open the floodgates of the Internet to ask him anything. He’s currently the number one post on the front page. Here are some highlights.

Q: Are you prepared for the title “Sexiest Man Alive 2012” by the People magazine? – endrehelg
A: Haha! I’m pretty sure I’m miles away from even being a contender, nor would I ever expect it.

Q: What is your hair-care regimen? – sirsasana
A: Oh man, I kinda saw this one coming, haha. Just shampoo, maybe conditioner, no particular brand or whatever. Its really thin so I just use wax/pomade from Keihl’s (product placement?). And once in a while go to a cool barber called Freeman’s.

Q: How do you view your famous picture? Normally most people doesn’t like their own photos, would you say ” yep. That’s definitely a ridicoulous good photo”. I’m really interested how you like your picture 🙂 – justdgl_therealone
A: Regardless of who the subject is, Will King took a great photo. I’ve told Will, the photographer, that as well.

Q: What was your time for the marathon? – jr98664
A: The run was a 10K, I’ve yet to run a marathon, though. My chip time was 47:16 I believe.

Q: What’s your favorite meme of yourself? – greywarden
A: It got to a point where it felt weird looking at a billion pics of mysef, so I might have missed out on any recent ones within the past week or so.
There are a ton of great ones. Off the top of my head, I like the “Record Milk Sales” one, the creepy Wolverine one and definitely the RPG photoshopped into the North By Northwest airplane scene.

Q: What has been your friend’s/family’s reaction to all this? did you know of memes before you became an internet sensation? – powermad47
A: They love it. My dad was so proud he would have given away my complete biography, complete with SSN to a journalist until I had to ask him to dial it back a little bit, haha.
Yeah, I’ve always found memes funny, but never, ever though I’d BECOME one. Bizarre.

Q: How did you first react when you found out you picture went viral? How has it affected your life? – Polite_Canadian_Girl
A: I got a call from Redditor friends about 4 hours after the images was initially posted on the internet. They were saying I was number one on Reddit, and gave no explanation, so I assumed whatever it was was really bad, but I was racking my brain as to what it could have been.
When I finally saw the photo I laughed for about an hour. It was just surreal. It’s still surreal.

Full IAmA here.
