I can not imagine one instance where I’d want to re-create something like this.
The baby photo is a lovely moment of father and son bonding. The recreation is so bizarre that it accumulated 26,000 baffled comments.
The son, Tyler Walker, posted the photo with his dad Charles on Facebook. Tyler is seen looking back at the camera while sitting on his Charles’s stomach as they both laugh in the tub.
The remake was intended to be funny, but most people were overwhelmed by the weirdness of the image.
One person said on the Facebook post: ‘Why can’t people take normal pictures with their relatives!’
Another said: ‘This is hilarious in the most awkward way.’
Some thought it was funny and showed the father and son had a good relationship. One person wrote: ‘This is too funny! Y’all play toooo MUCH.’
Another problem was how the recreation was barely similar to the first photo. For example: they didn’t bother to fill up the tub.
Aside from the age difference, one of the the main differences between the photos is how it is cropped.
In the baby photo all that is visible is Charles’s chest up but in the recreation, we see the majority of his legs.
Tyler’s rear-end is mostly obscured by a shadow in the baby photo but as an adult, his bottom is front and center. However, the lighting is also totally off which may have been why there were shadows in the first photo.
To many people’s relief, upon inspection the father is seen wearing shorts or boxer briefs.
