This could go down as the greatest photobomb in the history of ruined photos.
On Monday, during President Barack Obama‘s second inauguration, Oregon State men’s basketball coach Craig Robinson was caught behind the commander-in-chief with an odd smile.
Robinson, the brother of First Lady Michelle Obama, joins an elite group of people daring enough to photobomb a president’s photo. There’s no way to know if it was intentional, but this may have been just the exposure opportunity Robinson needed to help his recruiting. A photo like this was seen by millions, maybe adding to the chances that Robinson can land some talent up in Corvallis.
At this point, any press is good press for the first brother-in-law. Oregon is 10-8 so far this season and has dropped its first five conference games in a weak Pac-12.
Despite the woes in conference play, Robinson led the Beavers to a 20-win campaign last season, a 10-win turnaround from the previous year. Robinson and the Beavers return to action Wednesday against Washington, likely with multiple posters of this image in the stands.
This is the same inauguration where ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos made the mistake of thinking Celtics legend Bill Russell was acting legend Morgan Freeman.
