G+ pulled an absolute blinder with this, posting on their blog they were going to be introducing 'Auto Awesome Photobombs with David Hasselhoff'.

They wrote:

Google+ Auto Awesome is all about fun surprises that bring your photos to life. And whether it’s Benedict Cumberbatch at the Oscars or Michelle Obama at the White House, a celebrity photobomb is the ultimate surprise, turning an ordinary photo into something extraordinary.

Now with Auto Awesome Photobombs, you too can get a celebrity photobomb—no red carpet required. We’re starting with surprise appearances by +David Hasselhoff, everyone’s favorite crime-fighting rockstar lifeguard.

Thin is, if they introduced it for real it would probably be incredibly popular.

This is almost cooler than the original auto-awesome...in fact, while it may sound like hyperbole, it's even more groundbreaking than the original gmail announcement, I think.

Ok. That's one autoawesome (sorry: #hoffsome ) feature I really would like to have ;)

Let the Fools' begin. Not sure I want to upload any photos to Google+ today. :)
