Glastonbury 2014: The truth behind viral naked hippie picture
The photo can actually be traced back to as far as 2010
A photo of a boy’s horrified face having come face-to-groin with a completely naked man at an event is doing the rounds on Twitter, after it was claimed to have been taken at this year’s Glastonbury.
Unfortunately, that man hadn’t lost all of his clothes in the melee of the mosh pit during last night’s Metallica set. Nor did he want to take a video recording of the English National Ballet who took to the Pyramid Stage this morning at 11.30am.
No, the picture is at least four years old. It appears on a blog post by Joey Devilla on 30 May 2010, and may even predate that.
The image was tweeted by bookmakers Paddy Power this morning, who said it is “probably the best pic from #Glastonbury you'll see this weekend.”
It has since gone viral and received over 1,600 retweets, leading social media users to warn of the dangers of “naked hippies.”
Even TV presenter Eamonn Holmes tweeted it out, garnering more than 1,900 retweets.
However, should the revelation be a disappointment or should you feel that there just hasn't been enough nakedness at this year’s event in Somerset, one man is definitely not letting the side down…
