“Can someone Photoshop the Eifeltower under my finger?”

If you want something done right, don’t ask the internet.

Dutch tourist Sid Frisjes was on holiday in Paris. He wanted to take one of those forced-perspective photos, but he either didn’t have the time or lacked the patience (or the problem-solving skills) to achieve the effect himself. So he did the next best thing. He posted the picture above on 4chan and asked the internet to fix it for him. And that is how he broke the internet.

Some people call the responses trolling, but I think it’s just funny people giving a dodo his just desserts. Whatever your opinion of the contributors, the results are just as satisfying as you imagine. Let the games begin!

This one was done by Sid’s actual grandfather. Say what you will, but it’s 100 times better than what my father could deliver.

eiffel 9a

This one’s my favorite

eiffel 1a

The caption I saw on this one was genius. “Bienvenue à Jurassique Parc.”

  1. Hahahaha! The one with the words ‘The Eiffel Tower’ under his fingers is literally hysterical 😅

  2. Obviously only Mr Frisjes can decide whether he felt bullied or not but I think this is just harmless fun. It was an opportunity for people to get creative because of his ambiguously phrased request and boy did they run with it. They certainly made me chuckle and I hope Frisjes chuckled too.

  5. That ode to ET practically killed me! So funny, if anything, this is a win for that man.
