We have all seen this famous photo as it went viral for years now, with too many memes to count, this photo was used in every single topic or meme you could find online to compare two things together, but do you know the story behind this viral image?

A Stock photo that went viral 

The photo was captured way before 2017, the year it went highly viral, photographer Antonio Guillem was behind this viral image, as the picture was titled "disloyal man walking with his girlfriend and looked amazed at another seductive girl the photographer Antonio is one of the best sellers when it comes to stock images, but he says this photo did not get sold more than 700 times even when it went viral "

He found out that his image went viral from social media memes just like everyone else; however, he decided not to pursue copyrights unless the photo was used in an awful way.

The photographer created an entire narrative out of stock images from this couple, from marriage to pregnancy and betrayal.
Most viral memes were not created with that intent; however they suddenly go viral thanks to social media channels and people with good humor, creating unique opportunities for the people with the pictures and the photographers as they get a free boost and marketing through social media channels, some people try for decades to get viral images or viral memes with no avail, so it is not easy and sometimes completely random.
