All of us strive for recognition from our fellow humans, and this man’s chosen route to fame was the now-familiar method of live TV broadcast photobombing.

After noticing that a TV news show was broadcasting nearby, this photobomber ran full-tilt through his neighborhood to get in front of the cameras. His friends kept filming the TV to make sure they didn’t miss a moment, and happily, the photobomb—or “videobomb,” as the video’s title calls it—succeeded.

It’s nice to have achievable life goals, right?
