It even matches his tie

"So basically throughout uni in most of the club photos of me, I'd always have a VK in my hand," Harry told The Tab. "It became an ongoing joke that I should do brand repping. So I thought it would be funny to have it in my graduation pic too."

The UEA grad then caught the eye of VK themselves, who posted the photo onto their Instagram.

Harry continued: "I was thinking about how it could be incorporated, then I saw a friend's graduation pic on my newsfeed and thought it would make sense to hold the VK instead of the scroll.

"Then I just nipped to the local supermarket and bought a pack a few days before the ceremony."

When asked what people's reactions to the photos have been like, Harry said that people have really liked it. "Loads of people are in on the joke so they love it," he said.

And his parents are clearly very proud.

That's his dad, lol

When asked if he has any regrets, Harry said: "Absolutely not, I don't know many people who regularly look at their graduation pictures and on the rare occasion that I do in the future it'll be a bit of a laugh.

"Plus, I've got a nice one with my sister and parents that I've distributed amongst the family."
