DENVER — The manager of a Denver Chipotle restaurant has become an Internet celebrity thanks to the wide-eyed pose he struck alongside Mitt Romney when the Republican presidential candidate stopped by for lunch.

Twenty-year-old Marty Arps struck the pose during a group photo with Romney and Chipotle employees Tuesday afternoon. Arps is seen making a wide-eyed expression while pointing at Romney.

Arps told The Daily he makes the expression when he's excited.

He said he doesn't know yet who he'll vote for, and says he's "not too hip to elections and stuff."

The Associated Press photo is being shared extensively via Twitter and is making the rounds on websites.

Romney ordered a pork burrito bowl with guacamole during a break from practice for Wednesday's debate with President Barack Obama in Denver.
