Florida Gulf Coast basketball player Chase Fieler made a bit of name for himself Friday night during his team’s upset win over Georgetown.

He didn’t have a great game; he scored only nine points, but did have a highlight-worthy one-handed dunk in the second half, which sent the Twitter a buzz.

But Fieler is about to be known for something that has absolutely nothing to do with basketball.

Before FGCU’s 78-68 upset of Georgetown, Philly.com’s Jonathan Tannenwald and the Inquirer’s Zach Berman got together to give a recap of the first session of NCAA Tournament games at the Wells Fargo Center.

It was a very professional scene with Tannenwald and Berman ready to give some great insight on the games.

There was one problem: Fieler was on the floor and he decided to spice up the video a bit and photo-bomb us at Philly.com.

At about the 55 second mark, Fieler takes it upon himself waltz behind the two and provides a little entertainment for the folks watching at home.

Tannenwald and Berman, completely unaware of the sheer comedy taking place behind them, continue to talk about Creighton’s Doug McDermott, but by that point, Fieler has become the subject of the video.

Fieler averages 12.2 points per game this season and was named all-conference for his efforts, but who cares about that when he’s photo-bombing us in the middle of what was supposed to be a video consisting of serious basketball discussion.

Congrats, Fieler. You got us and you got us good.

You got us so good, we won't call it a photo-bomb. We'll call it a Fieler-bomb.
