The President of the United States is in the country for the Conference of the Parties (COP26) climate summit, and his ironically sizable motorcade has been turning heads as it passes through the streets.
But it was the people in the motorcade who no doubt had their heads turned while travelling from Edinburgh to Glasgow, with one bloke using the once in a lifetime moment to reportedly flaunt his penis to the President.
The White House pooled report of the journey earlier today (Tuesday 2 November) stated: "At one point when we were still on smaller country roads, a large, naked Scottish man stood in his front window taking a picture of the motorcade with his phone."

Welcome to Scotland, Mr President

Large in what way, exactly?
It's also unclear why the chap had his chap out. Perhaps the motorcade caught him unawares and he didn't want to miss the moment putting his kecks on; or perhaps he was making some kind of political statement.
A lot of people have certainly been unimpressed by the size of Biden's motorcade (that's not a euphemism).
He touched down in Air Force One yesterday (1 November) and has been ferried about in his convoy of around 25 vehicles. So basically, a lot of fuel has been used getting him to the summit, which is about tackling climate change.
Biden is not the only attendee to be criticised for the size of their carbon footprint.
Channel 4 News correspondent Ciaran Jenkins showed the streets surrounding the COP26 venue lined with chauffeur-driven cars, many of which had their engines idling.
Posting the short clip, Jenkins said it was an 'interesting look for a climate conference'.
However, Foreign Secretary Liz Truss has defended the summit, arguing that 'crunch negotiations' benefit from face-to-face meetings.
She told BBC Breakfast: "I think everybody who has ever done a Zoom call knows that they are quite useful for some things, but when you really get into crunch negotiations, when you want to look somebody in the eye and talk to them face-to-face you do need to meet in person, and this is really critical.
"World leaders are going to have to make some tough decisions about what's going on in their own countries, they're going to have to commit to things they didn't necessarily want to when they arrived at the conference and that's why it's really important that we do have people face-to-face."
