Gene Chizik photobombs as prom dad


It all began with a tweet, this tweet to be exact:

@lutzenkirchen You think my son will come home from prom alive? #Chizz

At first glance, the photo shows a beaming pair of teens set to go on a prom date. This is the same type of photo that has been flooding social media in recent weeks, as it does every year, when high schooler’s across the nation smile for the inevitable and sometimes forced, parental prom photo.

However, one famous dad didn’t appear all too impressed. Former Auburn University head football coach Gene Chizik is seen in the background of his daughter’s prom photo along with her date.

“Never did I imagine that my sons prom photo would blow up twitter! Lol.” That’s what Jeri Dickey said via Twitter on Sunday, April 6.

One user coined the hashtag #DontMessWithChiz.

For all who were wondering, the story had a happy ending. Mom confirmed that all is well with her son.

For the record my son made it out alive! #prom2k14
