1The San Antonio Spurs that sneaked up on an Australian reporter
Julian de Stoop was not pleased as two obnoxious men barged into his shot while he was reporting on the Australian Football League for Fox Sports Australia. Angry, he shoved them out of the way. However, he didn't know that he was shoving away San Antonio Spurs guard Patty Mills and Larry O'Brien Trophy-carrying forward Aron Baynes. He wrote a short story on news.com.au, explaining the situation:
"I can honestly say that this is the first time I've been punked by a bloke with a newly-minted three-year $12 million NBA contract. And I'm pretty confident in saying that I've never previously been photobombed with a major US sporting trophy."

4Even unicorns in tutus want their 15 minutes of fame
WLTV Good Morning Jacksonville reporter David Williams was reporting on a fire. Nobody was injured, but during the report for the 6 pm broadcast, a woman—wearing a unicorn's head, a pink tutu, and leotard—appeared to taunt Williams by running up to the reporter, waving her arms in the air and making bizarre noises. Watch as he remains stoic throughout the encounter. We have to admit, we would have lost it:

7They're too sexy for their shirts

8The most metal videobomb of all time
In 2014, a local ABC affiliate sent one of the members of their Eyewitness News Team out onto the snowy streets of Belmar, NJ for a quick on-air hit. As the reporter dredged around the snow, a (possibly toasted) metalhead suddenly wandered into frame—or, more accurately, made his way from the darkness on the edge of town towards the light of the camera. Somehow, he instinctively knew that the camera was in the middle of a live shot, so he put his best air guitar moves on display and rocked the F*CK out!
9A streaker steals the show on Australian TV

Until the Wolverine practically had his arms around me! ‘Photobomb!' Hugh yelled. I was so shocked; I couldn't believe this mega-star just punked me! I couldn't help but laugh.”
