It was from another agency, mind you.  But the punchline is that the photo was not of him after all.  Just another, very similar hipster.

Unfortunately Petapixel's caption- "man pissed over photograph of himself"- means something quite different in the UK.

 

I learned that a few decades back while working here in the states with a product manager from Aberdeen. One could say an angry drunk got pissed because he got pissed.
