It's a classic (8) -- The boy with grey speedos

Yes, these are among the most classical pictures ever.  An innocent boy---innocent especially by our demanding standards---goes viral on the internet and refuses to disappear.


And, for a change, we know (or learned) the underlying story: this is Pedro Delafuente, a Mexican exchange student at Corona High School on Coronado Island, San Diego, at the time. The famous photos were taken at Newport Harbor High School, Newport Beach, California, during a water polo tournament in 2004. 


(Xersex, what do you say?)

  1. I've seen these pics a million times but never knew the back story. Thanks for this. Pedro, wherever you are, thanks for taking such good care of yourself. You're beautiful.

  2. You're right, I've seen most of these pics already. They did go viral. No wonder why! Nice research, wish there was more info though but, this is cool to read as well.

  3. I wonder now, after 16 years how Pedro Delafuente is now.
