This baby is totally giving Zoolander a run for his money.

While posing for his daycare portrait, Sawyer Loudon, then 5 months old, was caught giving a "thumbs-up" to the camera.


The epic photo was taken 2 months ago, but his mother, Kim Loudon, posted the stylin' picture to Reddit last week, where it quickly went viral. As of Tuesday afternoon, is has a whopping 2.8 million views on Imgur.

The picture perfect pose, Loudon told The Huffington Post in an email, seemed to be orchestrated completely by chance.

"I'm not sure how the photographer caught him at the perfect moment but I'm sure he was in the middle of taking his fingers to or from his mouth," Loudon wrote. "I'm not sure we could repeat the pose any time soon even if we tried."

Sawyer's picture took the Internet by storm, and was even the subject of a Reddit Photoshop Battle. While Loudon and her husband, Jeff, thought the picture was funny, they never thought it'd end up getting so much buzz.

"We thought a few people would find [the portrait] humorous and maybe brighten their day a bit," Loudon explained. "It's been kind of surreal. We never thought his picture would get this much attention."

Sawyer's now almost 7 months old, and while his parents haven't considered a modeling career for the tot, we're totally all for it.

Forget "Blue Steel,' Sawyer's bringing back the thumbs-up.
