"I've got a great group of guys around me to make me look good," 49ers quarterback Alex Smith told NBC sideline reporter Michele Tafoya, oblivious to what was going on behind him, after San Francisco's 27-19 win over the Lions in Candlestick Park on Sunday night.

As Tafoya interviewed Smith and 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree on Sunday evening, an uninvited guest snuck into the frame. Staring directly into the camera, the unknown man stole the show. Citing his "deep, dead-eyed gaze into the heart of America's viewing audience," USA Today called this guy "the creepiest fan in the NFL."

Deadspin later identified the man as Niraj Vora, a fan who gained access to the field by helping a technician at the stadium.

On Monday, the interview interloper went viral, with Gabe Zaldivar of Bleacher Report dubbing it the "greatest videobomb of all time."
