A new Instagram account is quickly going viral in France for its voyeuristic snapshots of "handsome" Parisian men riding the Metro.


The Paris Metro is always full of surprises, and perhaps none would be so surprised as the unsuspecting men whose pictures end up on "MecsMetroParis" - an Instagram account started by three friends last week.
The account shares pictures, sent in by the public, featuring the most "handsome" men riding the Paris underground. 

The account is already proving popular with over 8,000 followers.

"This is my new favourite account!!!" says one Instagram user, with another adding that the men are being snapped "for the pleasure of our eyes".

The idea has previously caught people's attentions abroad, with the New York version "HotDudesReading" boasting 365,000 followers on Instagram, and the London account TubeCrush sharing pics for almost 10,000 fans on Facebook. 
If you've spotted someone worth sharing, the team urges you to send your pictures to [email protected] 

And who knows, you might end up appearing there yourself one day soon.
