Here's the truth about THAT viral 'Glastonbury' photo

Hint: It’s not from Glastonbury.

YOU’LL SEE A lot of, well, interesting things at Glastonbury, but this isn’t one of them.

A picture has been doing the rounds on social media of a little boy looking horrified at the sight of a completely naked man, purportedly taken at this year’s Glastonbury festival.

Unfortunately (or should we say fortunately?) the man in the photo was not strolling around Worthy Farm in the nip.

The photo is actually from a 2010 blog post by Joey Devilla, aptly titled Scarred For Life.

According to the Independent, a tweet by Paddy Power yesterday morning with the caption “Probably the best pic from #Glastonbury you’ll see this weekend” ensured the photo went viral for all the wrong reasons.

There are still no answers on how the photo itself came to be, though. We’ll probably never know.
