It started with an image that was supposedly recovered from a camera found at Ground Zero, of a man standing on top of the World Trade Center with a plane visible in the background. The image was passed around in email as "the last moments of a tourist's life," but the plane and the timestamp were obviously shopped, and Snopes debunked it quickly.
As with most image memes, Tourist Guy was quickly beaten into the ground, and now he's considered about as acceptable for shoops as Happy Negro. Possible use as an intentional old meme has not been explored.
