Move over, Distracted Boyfriend––it's time for Distracted Groom!
The Distracted Boyfriend meme has been popular for quite a while. It made the rounds late last year along with a bunch of other pictures from the same photo-shoot, eventually telling a sordid tale of wandering eyes and cheating hearts. The meme serves to showcase all the ways in which people are easily... well... distracted.
In case you somehow managed to miss it, here are some examples from Twitter.

Okay, so you get the point. Recently, a wedding photographer managed to capture a picture that takes the distracted boyfriend meme and ramps it up to entirely new levels. The image, initially posted on Reddit, shows a bride and groom getting their picture taken in front of the sea. The bride is photo-ready, smirking coyly at the camera. The groom, however, is looking off behind him at a swimmer as he steps out of the water. The swimmer is well-muscled, wearing a gold chain, and has 100 percent of the groom's attention.
Yeah... it's a perfect "upgrade" from Distracted Boyfriend.
