The video of reporter Erin Andrews' live segment on Fox's NFL postgame show has gone viral and it has nothing to do with Andrews talking about the Superbowl half-time show. The video spotlight is on two very random men photobombing the live shot on Sunday, September 9, 2013.
The two men stand right behind Andrews, among dozens of other fans who are smiling and waving at the cameras. One guy with dreadlocks, hanging onto Andrews every last word, nodding and smirking. The other with a full beard, mouth opened and staring blankly at the cameras.
'Beardo' is Broc Verschoor and 'Dreads' is Hans Hokenson, both are 25 years old and are from Lancaster Pennsylvania. Both men are married, Verschoor is a photographer and Hokenson is a stay-at-home dad.
The friends have been travelling through the northeast for the past few days and were just winging it.
The two men said they waited by the barricades for about an hour and "it just kind of happened."
After the postgame show, they were separated for about an hour in the crowd at Times Square. They had no clue they became Internet stars until they reunited.
On Monday morning the epic photobombers were on their way out of New York City and back to Pennsylvania, but not before one last stop. This time it was on the Today Show.
"We weren't planning on doing anything in regards to photo-bombing," Hokenson said. "But we went down there and we're like, 'Well we already did it last night and it seemed to go pretty well,' so we just keep doing it over and over again."
The viral video has been viewed over 315,000 times as of Monday afternoon.
