These newspaper photobombs are inspired. Shot by an anonymous photographer who clearly has a fun sense of humor and an eye for special pairings, the captures involve the everyday commuter and pictures for a local newspaper. Essentially he or she pairs up heads from ads, comics and more with the bodies of travellers for a hilarious effect.

Taking the No. 22 bus early in the morning, the anonymous photographer began shooting his (or her) newspaper photobombs and sending them to his colleagues on a random day. As Shortlist writes, "A strategically folded newspaper and some careful positioning brings a world of entertainment into his yawn-riddled commute."

The newspaper photobombs will surely inspire people to make their commute much more enjoyable by indulging in their imaginations and creativity. Perhaps they'll simply follow suit. Stats for Anonymous Commuter Captures Trending: Older & Mild
