As far as photobombs go, this one is among the funniest you will ever see. BBC presenter Tom Brook, who was in India to film a special episode of 'Talking Movies', had the limelight stolen from him by a bike-riding dog. A video shows Mr Brook in an autorickshaw on the streets of Mumbai when the dog, riding pillion behind its owner, shows up in the background. The video has gone viral online, delighting and amusing many.
In the video, Mr Brook is introducing himself when the white dog appears in the background. The dog is seen balancing itself on its hind legs, with its front paws on the shoulder of the man driving the bike.
"This is the most Indian photo bomb," wrote the Twitter user who shared the video online. Watch the hilarious video for a lovely surprise at the 16-second mark:

This isn't the first time an animal has managed to steal the attention from a BBC anchor. In August, a 'giant' spider hijacked a live interview on BBC News, amusing many.
