One couple has quickly reached viral fame after an unintentionally hilarious family photo.
They say "be careful what you post online," but most of the time, that's so future employers don't see you in less-than-employable situations, but one young couple discovered it can turn you into a viral sensation on Twitter. That's what Stefan Pollman and Philia Gold discovered when they posted two photos — one with a baby, and one without on the former's Instagram account.
At first glance, the pictures don't seem to be too out of the ordinary. There's an attractive couple with an adorable baby in a small kitchen. The second photo featured only the couple sans child, with a more adult black and white filter.
Normally, these kinds of things would go unnoticed on anyone's Instagram feed, but one keen-eyed Twitter user spotted the little bundle of joy in the grown up's only shot and decided to point it out, according to Fox News.
Unfortunately, the original Tweet is no longer available, but the responses still are, and they're hilarious (for the most part).

While everyone was having a good time at the expense of the couple, one user pointed out that the "baby" seems to be in the same pose in both pictures, despite being held in one photo, and placed on the ground in another, leaving many to question if this floor-child is even real.
With all that in mind, the Instagram account that hosted the photo seems to have taken it down, and the Twitter user who pointed out the hilarity revealed her intention was to have fun, not direct a swarm of angry parents to some poor soul's account. So in a way, this is a lesson for everyone to maybe ease up a bit when it comes to online outrage.
Despite a few bad eggs, the photo is pretty hilarious, even if it was unintentional. We're sure at some point, mom and dad will have to sit their child down to let them know that, for a fleeting moment, they were internet famous — which we all know is the best kind.
