Ryan Seacrest tried the new Dolly Parton-inspired social media photo trend with hilarious results. The Live with Kelly and Ryan host posted four photos, which he felt were appropriate for the sites Facebook, Instagram, Tinder, and LinkedIn. All were different images that showcased the media personality in four very distinct ways.
The trend came after Dolly, in honor of her 74th birthday, shared a sequence of images.
“Get you a woman who can do it all,” she captioned the post. The tag indicated a picture that would be most appropriate for the four main social media platforms, reported ABC News.
Dolly’s photos included a sweet image of the singer dressed as a teacher, a pic of the country superstar in a holiday sweater, a retro photo where she was standing with one leg up in a doorway, and a final photo for Tinder, where she was dressed in a Playboy Bunny costume.
In honor of Dolly’s trend, Ryan uploaded four different photos that would fit the social media sites as well.
For LinkedIn, the talk show host wore a suit and stared directly into the camera with a serious look on his face. In the square devoted to Facebook, he was happily playing with his niece Flora, the daughter of his sister Meredith and her husband Jimmy.
The Instagram square showed Ryan in a pensive mood, looking away from the camera out a window, wearing a white tuxedo. Finally, the Tinder pic showed the media personality wielding a sledgehammer in a show of strength.
Ryan’s fun addition to the challenge was one extra photo that showed up on the next slide. In that one, he posted a photo for the social media site MySpace, an older webpage that was popular in the early 2000s as a social networking site. In the hilarious pic, Ryan sported a black suit, black shirt, and long black hair, shaved on one side and pushed over, brushing his eye on the opposite side.
Fans thought both the challenge and Ryan’s photos were hilarious and expressed their love for the post in its comments section.
Many had their particular favorite photo of the Live star. It appears the most popular of the four images in the first slide was the one dedicated to Facebook where Ryan was happily playing with Flora.
But it seemed like most fans loved the MySpace version of Ryan. They declared that look as the overall winner of all the photos he posted.
“Is the MySpace pic channeling the Adam Lambert circa early American Idol days look?!?!” questioned one fan.
“OMG, Love this, one of the best for sure. Especially with the MySpace image,” quipped a second Instagram follower.
“MySpace…bring it back! I loved getting to decorate the whole page,” noted a third follower of the entertainment mogul.
