Nice doll. I'll take the one on the right.

Seriously though, it's nice to see he's doing well. :-)

I was reading on the story behind that photo. Apparently he was a huge class clown. He bought that sweater vest, put on that blue button up under it, roughed up his face and hair a little and intentionally took on the slack jawed expression. His friend posted it on Reddit as made the first Bad luck Brian caption and boom. Bad luck Brian was born!

I hadn't heard that until now, but if it's true, then that's pretty funny :)

Apparently the original print isn't even available because the principal at school made him go to do a re-take on the photo and they made him turn in the picture. I bet had he known it was going to be famous he would have bought the copy!

His friend scanned it and posted it on Reddit before he took it back to school. I should go find that article.

Good for him!

Looks like he's had a few double cheeseburgers since he graduated.

Well... who hasn't? ;-p

"bad luck" brian, he is quite "good luck" and "not bad luck" in real life.

What is even the story behind that picture?

For picture day at school he decided to take a really goofy picture. He went to a thrift store and bought that sweater vest and put that blue button up under it. At school he roughed up his hair and rubbed his face and eyes so he would look a little worse, then purposely took on a slack jawed expression. His friend posted the photo on Reddit with some caption calling him Bad Luck Brian as a joke. By the next day it had gone viral. I posted the link to the article up top, but here it is for you: https://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/style/being-bad-luck-brian-when-the-meme-that-made-you-famous-starts-to-fade-away/2015/01/05/07cbf6ac-907c-11e4-a412-4b735edc7175_story.html?noredirect=on&utm_term=.d06139a5d8ed
