The charismatic former president Bill Clinton has a history of stealing the show wherever he appears, and last night’s presidential inauguration was no exception.
According to Examiner.com, a photo of Clinton peeking out from the crowd to take a close look at singer Kelly Clarkson as she was performing My Country tis of Thee has exploded across the internet to become a global sensation.
At 66 years of age, Bill Clinton has wowed the world with the cheeky smile on him while looking at Clarkson, which quickly went viral after first appearing on Twitter.
The video that spawned this brilliant picture has now been seen by millions, thus assuring that it will become one of the most popular topics in the history of presidential inauguration ceremonies. The Clinton camp has so far been keeping quiet about this unintentional chain of events, which may be one reason for it’s smashing popularity.
The former American Idol winner has yet to mention the photo yet, but did talk about the day on her twitter account.
“What an honor to be a part of history! Obama’s presence was powerful and his words unforgettable. It’s a proud day for America!” Kelly tweeted after her performance. She also posted a still of her shaking Barack Obama’s hand and said “Maybe the coolest photo I’ve ever been in… ever!”
Clinton’s photobomb joins the list of other funny moments at the inauguration, including the president’s daughter, Sasha, yawning during his speech.
Did you catch the Bill Clinton photobomb? Do you think it was just bad timing, or was the former President actually checking out Kelly Clarkson?
