Sam Smith's Photobomb
Sam Smith went unrecognized as he photobombed a local news segment.

Earlier this summer, Sam Smith denied that he was tapped to sing the theme for the next James Bond flick, Spectre.

“People seem to think I’m doing it but I have no idea what’s going on,” he said to Capital FM. “I’m being deadly serious. I think I would know by now. I heard Ellie Goulding was going to do it. It’s definitely not me.” This tip made Ellie the frontrunner among bidders betting on who sings the theme, at least until someone tried to bid £15,000 that Radiohead did it instead.

Today, however, Sam hints that he did the Spectre theme after all. He tweeted a photo of someone’s hand, presumably his, wearing a ring inscribed with the film’s logo — an octopus with jagged tentacles. The In the Lonely Hour balladeer was among the first artists rumored to be behind the theme. But if he named Ellie just to throw people off his trail, that may be more brilliant than him doing the song itself.

Spectre director Sam Mendes revealed this summer that the Spectre theme has already been recorded: “You won’t have to wait long.” How exciting!
