Desmond Bryant’s epic mug shot inspires ‘Dezzing’ social media trend
Let’s get one thing out of the way here: Any excuse we have to re-post this all-time awesome mug shot is going to be seized. This mug shot was taken by Oakland Raiders DT Desmond Bryant over the weekend, and it belongs in the Hall of Fame of mug shots. Heck, it’s so splendid, it should get its own bust in Canton before Michael Strahan.
As you know by now, Bryant was arrested Sunday on a misdemeanor charges of criminal mischief for allegedly drunkenly causing a disturbance at a neighbor’s house (did the neighbors not have ADT?). His incredible mugger has made its way around the Internet and reached the late night talk show circuit this week.
Host Jimmy Kimmel was so enthralled with the mug shot, he decided to turn it into a social media trend. Kimmel asked his “Jimmy Kimmel Live” viewers Wednesday to do their best Bryant impressions and send him the picture over Twitter using the hashtag “#dezzing.”
Below are several photos of people “dezzing,” beginning with Kimmel staffer Guillermo:
