For a Grammy-winning artist who has turned into a global sensation… Sam Smith sure seems desperate for attention.

We kid, of course, though the singer does give off that impression in this humorous video.

It features the solo artist hanging around the background of an ABC 7 news report about how Red Rocks has just been declared a national monument.

The cameraman is speaking to a pair of locals, but the young women can’t help but be distracted by the famous individual waving and being all silly behind them.

Smith later shared a couple photos from his prank on Instagram and wrote along with them: "Photobombing the news."
