Is this the world’s happiest picture?
The above picture is a classic shot of a couple on holiday which was brilliantly photo-bombed by a squirrel. If this made you smile, then you are not alone as this image came top in a poll to find the happiest photograph, with 71% of people unable to resist smiling at it.
Coca-Cola’s mission was to identify snaps that provoke an instant happy response. In a poll of 2,015 adults, this photograph – taken by a couple on holiday in Canada in 2009 – made more people smile than any other. The squirrel saw off stiff competition fro photographs of beautiful landscapes, silly human antics, babies, dogs, cats and over 10 other types of animal, including social media sensation and ‘world’s happiest animal’ – the quokka.
Other smile-inducing images making the top 10 included a gorgeous grinning baby in a pink hat, a smiling snowy owl and a curious giraffe, which all evoked smiles from seven out of 10 people, followed by a cute dog lying asleep on the grass, which had a smile score of 69%.
