Cigar guy demonstrates the power of social media

A photographer for the Daily Mail got a shot of Tiger woods ball as it headed straight for his camera. What really stood out however, was a man wearing a turban like hat, a big handlebar mustache, smoking a big cigar. That image started rippling through the internet and creative types starting photoshopping it into various icon images. His face appears over top of Sonny Liston in the fight of fights, on Beatles and Bob Dylan album covers and more. And it continues to gain momentum. No one knows the mystery mustache mans name, but it's proof that when one person starts a trend with the right mojo, there's no stopping it.
