Clearly, all of the other props were occupied at this photo studio.

Where’s the mint julip?
So many questions.
Alright Trevin — you must come forward!!! We are all dying to know the background on this AWESOMELY AWKWARD PHOTO!!! Your public is calling!!!!
Uh, ok, I’m simply speechless. Just speechless. Still trying to wrap my brain around just how he got on that pedestal. Well, that and the trillion other questions dying to be answered …. Sure has my vote for Most Awkward Photo.
coisas da vida.
Submitted by “Trevin.” I wonder if that is Trevin up there? Somebody had to give him a leg up!
what a fan-tastic photo!
What’s a compound bow? I see the phrase used all the time here and I feel like a goon for not knowing!
It started in “The Van Helsings” post and moved on to “The City Slickers” post and can fit in to many more posts.
Just wow. Definitely in the running for Most. Awkward. Photo. EVER.
wrong on so many levels. Lordie.
I can’t even believe his little legs just hanging there, not even close to the floor…
This picture is perfect in so many ways
I am demading an explanation from the submitter of this photo. There is a story behind it and I want to hear it. We can’t be left just hanging to speculate the circumstances surrounding this pic.
I agree!!! And why is the “natural homey background” a PAINTING of a natural. homey background?
Trevor figured that although his date dumped him at the last minute, why waste a perfectly good photography session?
All that effort and they overlooked tightining his tie up, now that is just sloppy.
He’s got confidence.
niiice. (if that is a reference to the McDonald sister’s album.)
OOOHHH LOOK….IT’S THE MALE VERSION OF MARY POPPINS!!
omg. genius. This is the awkward champ!
What– I don’t even– what the– I am at a total loss. My vast vocabulary fails me. Hats off to you, young sir, for completely robbing me of words that will adequately describe my feelings upon viewing this image. You are a champion among men, and women, and also those who are both or neither.
Bwahahahahaha…well said Penny!
I love this reply!
O…. M….. G….. Well, this is….. awesomely askward….. Kudos to him for going for it! I hope that he either won a bet that paid off handsomely or that he’s now working in Chandler’s father’s Las Vegas Review! (“Friends” reference ☺)
I *hope* this is the photographer’s son and he’s using him to test the props and lighting.
It’s a good theory, but I wonder about that smile…
Oh my gosh I love this! I can’t decide what is the greatest thing about this photo.
Did he stumble onto the set of Alice in Wonderland?
Dear God…this is painful. I sure hope he didn’t elect to do this on his own…lol.
I think he did. His posture’s too perfect for him to have been drugged and placed there against his will.
Oh. My. God. I reallllyy hope this guy has a cabaret act in the West Village now. Otherwise, I’ll just be very sad for this guy.
omg lol… this looks like plastic surgery clinic decor
Surely, this must be a joke.
Ho. Ly. Cow. I could not love this more if I tried.
Perhaps he’s just helping the photographer get a light reading??
Too many parents put their kids up on pedestals these days.
Best comment yet!!!!!
He doesn`t look stressed. I really think he wanted this. OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!
And he still found time to rock the 90′s “neck mullet” for his big day as a fancy courtesan!!
Bwahhaaaahahaaa. this is really the best website i have seen in a long time. Keep up the good work. Really makes my day every time.
He needs to send this to someone with the caption, “I’m your biggest fan….”
Hmmm – that gives me an idea – maybe I should do a photo *Similar* to this for my hubby… wowza!
Um… wow? He doesnt seem to mind it…
I love him! How many young men would be brave and self-assured enough to have this photo taken? I bet he is one happy and fabulous fellow today. Cheers!
(That, and he lost a bet.)
so natural! they really captured him in a moment.
um…oh, boy….um….I have no words for how utterly awkward this is….
Everything about this is awkward and therfore, A-MAZING.
This may be the most awkward professional solo shot I’ve ever seen. *applause*
What you don’t see is the paramedic on the sidelines … incase he falls off the prop.
THAT’S the reason for the bubble-wrap.
OK – someone submitted it!! Someone needs to explain it!!!
Probably one of the most wonderfully awkward pictures EVER!!
Two lacy thumbs up!
Move over, Van Helsings. There’s a new Awkward Champion in town.
Oh, is there ever!
Is it me or does the floor look like it’s covered in bubble wrap?
It’s in case he falls off his pedestal.
It looks like that thin, silver, shimmery wrapping paper.
Y’know, I hadn’t really gotten around to looking as far down as the floor…
