Photo of drunken debauchery on New Year’s Eve is being compared to a Renaissance work of art – 10 Photos

Everybody knows how often things get out of hand on New Year’s Eve. This is nothing unheard of in Manchester, England. However, photographer Joel Goodman happened to capture a moment that is currently blowing the internet’s mind. It has so far accumulated over 28,000 retweets and people are so overcome by the photograph that some have gone as far as comparing the scene to the work of renaissance artists. Basically, this picture is the Mona Lisa of drunken imbeciles.

Roland Hughes, a senior producer for the BBC, was the first to take to Twitter and share the photo that was taken during celebrations in Manchester, on New Year’s Eve.

It didn’t take long before people began comparing the photo to classical works of art, as shown below…



Some users even pointed out that the image fits the “golden ratio” of positioning in art.

And some artists even transformed the photograph into a painting fit for the 17th century.

The Photoshopping started to take on a life of its own.


Others started to realise who might be the real star of the “painting”.

So of course, some of the art focused purely on this beautiful sprawled-out man.
