Zeddie Little, a handsome 25-year-old from New York, has become an Internet sensation after he was seen in a photo taken last weekend at the Cooper River Bridge Run in Charleston, S.C., sparking the Ridiculously Photogenic Guy meme.
The photo by Will King has received more than 1.2 million views on Flickr and was the subject of much discussion on Reddit on Tuesday. It has also led to at least eight memes on the website quickmeme.com.
