Well, it was probably inevitable. Somebody found a way to make a buck off of Zeddie Watkins Little’s recent internet fame as the Ridiculously Photogenic Guy. And since his now-legendary photo was taken just over the bridge in Mt. Pleasant during the Cooper River Bridge Run, what better place to cash in on the trend than downtown Charleston?
The Elliott House Inn, a Queen Street bed and breakfast, announced last week that they would be offering a special deal called the Ridiculously Photogenic Guy Package. Here’s what you get, according to a press release:
In preparation for their ridiculously photogenic run, guests will pick up some new running gear with a $50 gift certificate for The Extra Mile running store and carbo load with a delicious pasta dinner at a local Italian favorite Il Cortile Del Re. After resting up for the run in The Elliott House Inn’s newly renovated accommodations, guests will hit the Ravenel Bridge, where the ridiculously photogenic photo was shot, to have their own photo snapped by local photographer Jeni Rone of Sea Star Arts.
The RPG Package goes for $329. Interested? You can make a reservation here.
