Lurking Ashley Cole is a photoshop meme based on a cutout image of the English professional soccer player taken from an official photograph of his team, the Italian club A.S. Roma, in which the famed defender is shown standing apart from the rest of his teammates.
On July 29th, 2014, the @PaddyPower Twitter feed posted a photograph of Cole standing awkwardly to the side of his new football club AS Roma (shown below, left). That morning, the @PaddyPower posted a photoshopped image of Cole standing in the crowd in the 2010 Cigar Guy photograph in which Tiger Woods is shown hitting a golf ball directly at the camera (shown below, right)
That day, additional Twitter users began posting photoshops featuring Cole lurking to the side in other base images. Also on July 29th, The Independent published an article about the photoshop meme, which highlighted several notable examples from Twitter. On the following day, Cole retweeted a photoshopped image in which he is shown lurking through a window behind his ex wife Cheryl Ann Fernandez-Versini (shown below).
In the coming days, several news sites reported on the photoshop meme and Cole’s controversial retweet, including The Independent, The Daily Record, The Daily Mail, The Mirror and The Huffington Post.
