MANILA, Philippines – The ‘Pambansang Photobomber’ levels up! 

Since the beginning of President Rodrigo Duterte’s administration, Special Assistant to the President Bong Go has gained a reputation for taking selfie-style photos during Duterte’s most historic moments.

This penchant for having his face in the foreground of every shot went on overdrive at this week’s Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Summit, where he took his trademark selfies with powerful world leaders just a few feet behind him

On Tuesday, November 14, Facebook page “Photo by SAP Bong Go” created a profile photo template  that allows users to superimpose Go’s now-famous mug in front of any photo they choose.

While most opted to upload photos of themselves using the template, some decided to juxtapose famous events from history and pop culture for extra laughs. Here’s a sampling:
