READ about Piers Morgan's long career in journalism here.
On Wednesday, Piers Morgan used his "Only in America" segment to bring into focus the unintentional images so often caught in the background of snapped pics.
With so many photo ops. coming on the campaign trail, it's perhaps the one element of a political race that neither the candidate, or his staff, can completely control.
Reviewing the phenomenon that's since been dubbed the "photobomb," Morgan shows some pictures, and shares some examples:
"Here's the president and First Lady in the stands, completely, blissfully unaware that the guy staring into the camera is stealing the show," points out the "Piers Morgan Tonight" host. "Or how about this shot from the second presidential debate: Josh Romney giving Obama a menacing death ray stare."
But while the assortment of options are seemingly unlimited, Morgan thinks he's secured the shot to be dubbed "the best political photo bomb of all time."
Popping the pic. up on-screen, Morgan sets the scene, which took place in Florida as Barack Obama spoke at a tennis center in Delray Beach:
"The president sitting with children from the Daughter of Zion Jr. Academy. It all seems standard fare, until you notice the back row."
And there, in the aforementioned back row, is a young boy, planting a sweet little smooch on the cheek of the little girl to his left:
"We witness one of the great budding romances in history, a little boy seizing the moment to kiss his sweetheart," Morgan details.
Noting that the young fellow is "in full Casanova mode," the host proclaimed "this guy knows how to get attention, global attention, as the photo beamed in minutes to all corners of the planet."
"Only in America," he concluded, could a little kid in the back row upstage two grown men, one known for the White House, the other, the penthouse:
"He may not become president, but that kid has got nerves of steel, great sense of timing, and could teach even Donald Trump a think or two about publicity stunts."
