Man Hilariously Inserts Himself into Pop Culture Photo Calendar Thanks to a Lost Bet

As football season approaches, it's becoming time for a fan-favorite activity – fantasy football. Maybe you're playing it just for fun, but for Henry Stern and his friends, getting last in their league means a punishment. Stern, last season's loser, had to put together a calendar of himself recreating famous moments in pop culture. The results are embarrassingly hilarious!

Each month features Stern's face Photoshopped onto the body of a celebrity or fictitious character. Some scenes are older, like January's recreation of George Costanza from Seinfeld, or September's “Marilyn Monroe” skirt flutter. But he also pays homage to more recent events, like Miley Cyrus' “Wrecking Ball” music video for March. The valuable lesson here is that if you play in a fantasy football league, make sure you know all of the rules first.
