Photobombing is becoming a common thing on the internet, but did you know it was also practised in the 1960s and 1970s? While some photos were accidental and some were on purpose, these amazing Beatles photobombs go to show that the act was funny, even then!
In this funny picture, Paul is photobombing George as two ladies try to take a photo with him. If the selfie was a thing at the time, Paul may have been cut out of the photo, but this great shot shows him messing around.
Ruining a nice shot of Ringo, George peeks out from the background holding a camera while they’re on what looks like a train.
In this photo, John gets photobombed by a woman in the background, maybe a fan, who almost ruins what would be a great photo. However her big smile just adds to the charm and shows the popularity of the pop band.
Here Ringo looks very serious while Paul stands in the background mimicking him. It’s hard to tell where they are but it looks like it could use a bit of doing up.
Ringo sticks his head in between John and either George or a friend to photobomb the two while they’re having a chat. The hats add to the charm of this image!

This funny Beatles photobomb shows an American radio DJ stepping in behind the four friends to get his moment in the limelight!
In typical John fashion, he pretends to be bored in the background while Paul is speaking. It’s not clear whether this a deliberate or accidental Beatles photobomb but it is quite funny to see.

It’s a little hard to tell who’s actually meant to be in the photo here, but judging by John’s face we’re guessing it’s not him!

In this image, a woman in a very large hat photobombs Ringo Starr’s family while they take a walk in the sun.
A funny face from John makes this photo seem less serious than it was probably meant to be.
