In 2022, the internet is obsessed with three things: capybaras, celebrity culture, and the raster graphics editing software, Photoshop. As Kim Kardashian continues to edit essential muscles out of her body, one artist has taken his Photoshopping skills to the next level by inserting himself into the daily lives of the rich and famous.

Call it virtual photo-bombing or his own take on the ‘Photoshop fails and bails’ phenomenon that has been gripping internet culture since its conception, digital artist and comedian Robert Van Impe—also known as Average Rob—is a self-proclaimed “mediocre dude from Belgium” who hilariously edits himself into celebrity photos.

Be it candid pictures or editorial photoshoots, Van Impe’s creations flawlessly blend him into the images in question, in turn giving the impression that he often hangs out with public figures in real life. From evening bike rides with Brangelina to chasing Leonardo DiCaprio—the founding father of ‘Leo Sexuals’: people who are only attracted to women aged 21 to 25—semi-naked with a water gun on a sunny morning, here are 15 mind-blowing images Van Impe has broken the internet with:

1. Behind the scenes of the iconic image

Hey Kanye, think twice before running down the halls with your soon-to-be-long-lost boo at 3 am, okay? Some of us are actually trying to catch some shut-eye here.

… And I’m pretty sure he doesn’t remember half of it.

3. The Lively-Reynolds family looks a little sus here

“Had the weirdest dream last night: Ryan Reynolds was my dad and Blake Lively changed my diapers… twice,” the artist captioned this creation. “Not sure if [this is] awkward or life goals.” Oh, life goals for sure, Van Impe. Life goals for sure.
