Naked Man Wearing Giant Panda Mask Rollerblades Along Highway

A naked man wearing nothing but a panda mask was spotted rollerblading down a busy highway in Columbus, Ohio.

The mysterious rollerblader was captured in action by an onlooker called Dijon Revels, who watched as the stranger took the 670 highway east on 15 December.

Revels shared the video of the strange scenes, showing the streaker rolling along confidently holding what is believed to be a selfie stick - a giant plush panda mask on their head.

A voice in the video can be heard saying: "This dude's on the freeway naked!"

The man reportedly even managed to capture footage or photographs of himself on the highway, as SUVs and trucks zoomed past him.

Revels said: "I thought I was dreaming.

"I didn't know it was real, I had never ever seen anything like that."

Officials have said the identity of the rollerblading man wasn't known as of Thursday, telling WTRF-TV that it was his choice of transit was their biggest concern.

A spokesman at the Ohio Department of Transportation said: "Pedestrians are not permitted on interstate highways.

"There are signs posted at all the entrance ramps. This is a safety issue."

Recently TV viewers in the UK almost got a similar (and unexpected) eyeful, when This Morning presenter Josie Gibson popped down to visit a nudist group in Liverpool for her daily segment, promoting a competition where people could win a car.


As the episode went on, Gibson clearly found herself getting into the spirit of things, and ended up joining her new pals by stripping down to her birthday suit - using a set of cue cards to cover her modesty.

The others around her also used carefully-placed props to keep their bits concealed for the daytime show, including newspapers and windbreakers.

But at one point, as the camera began to move around the group, the meticulously-angled items began to lose their effectiveness as certain body parts came closer into shot - with one gentlemen stood behind a car door perilously close to revealing all.

Thankfully, some quick-thinking person behind-the-scenes managed to cut the segment before things got too dicey, and the show returned to hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield in the studio.

Schofield said: "That was close! That was close! We were right on the ragged edge there."

Grinning in shock, Willoughby added: "That really was!"
