LOCATION: Paris, France (2009)

We launch France Week with perhaps the most iconic tacky tourist landmark besides the Leaning Miniskirt of Pisa.

Our Tacky Team skipped over the traditional hold-the-famous-landmark-in-your-palm and goofed around with other poses. Unlike the congested trick photography lanes in front of Pisa, we were the only ones snapping Eiffel Tower POV shots at this particular hour — and we got lots of stares from Parisian pedestrians.
