Former Scholarism member Oscar Lai Man-lok was photoshopped onto a large variety of photos after he was mocked for standing on tiptoes in order to photobomb New Territories East by-election candidates Alvin Yeung and Edward Leung.
Lai was given a new title, “magnet man of politics”, taking the baton from Hong Kong singer Jinny Ng Yuek-hei, who was called “magnet man” for unsuccessfully photobombing celebrity Cheng Yu-ling, more commonly known as Miss DoDo. Ng suffered the same fate of being photoshopped onto various unrelated photos.
The colloquial term “magnet man” generally refers to people who are attracted to cameras and like to get into photos as long if there is a sliver of space.
He was also photoshopped into other photos, including historical ones.
