The world has seen an awful lot of one Columbus man this week.
Known as Hoodpanda, this local man took to the freeways of Columbus, completely naked save for a panda hat and his rollerblades. In the stunt, he can be seen rollerblading down I-670, and a video taken of him went viral on Wednesday.
While some found the video hilarious and entertaining, others were more concerened about the obvious safety issues of a naked person on a busy interstate.
“Pedestrians are not permitted on interstate highways,” a spokesman at ODOT told NBC4. “There are signs posted at all the entrance ramps. This is a safety issue.”
Although Hoodpanda filmed himself while rollerblading on the freeway, one video making the rounds on the internet came from a vehicle who passed by on I-670. Instagram actually removed Hoodpanda’s video for violating community standards, but did allow other accounts to share the video on their accounts.
You can watch @Hoodpanda’s video below.
This should probably go without saying, but, stay safe out there you weirdos. We love you and don’t want anything bad to happen to you, so don’t attempt to recreate this video at home.
