Tourist Guy Unveiled

from the don't-believe-the-fakes dept

A couple weeks ago we posted an article about people trying to figure out who the real “tourist guy” was. Many people seemed to believe that he was a Brazilian guy who had a striking resemblance to the tourist guy. The Brazilian guy even started to say it was him, and got quite a bit of hype for himself. However, now a Hungarian man is claiming that he is the real tourist guy, but wants to remain anonymous – as he has no desire to become the next Mahir. He sent Wired (who wrote both articles) other photos of himself on top of the WTC, and it appears that he’s either a champion Photoshop expert, or the real tourist guy. I wonder if this will stop the ridiculous tourist guy fad, or only make it go further…
