Well, um, something odd just happened at the Olympics. A streaker wearing nothing but a pink tutu and a monkey penis pouch crashed the ice rink after the men’s 1,000 meter speed skating event on Friday, Feb. 23. TBH, the photos of the streaker crashing the 2018 Winter Olympics are a lot to handle. Brace yourselves, friends.
I'm not kidding. A spontaneous dude crashed the games wearing a vibrant pink tutu around his waste. He concealed his genitalia with a penis monkey pouch. Yes, the penis monkey patch had eyes on it. Yes, I felt weird writing that. But it happened, and you have to see it to believe it. In addition to his *revealing* outfit choice, the streaker had an uplifting saying drawn onto his chest in what appears to be black paint. The saying says "PEACE + LOVE."
Maybe he chose to promote peace and love to spread some joy throughout the world, or maybe he's just a free spirit who was looking for a thrill. Either way, he put a smile on my face. You'd probably be lying if you said you didn't laugh a little bit at the sight of his debut. Just look at his spontaneity.
While some people in the Gangneung Oval were probably shocked at the streaker's routine, viewers outside the arena didn't hesitate to whip out their cameras to capture the moment. Based off a video shared on Instagram, the streaker was on the ice for quite a few seconds before disappearing from the frame. However, TMZ reports he was on the ice for a few minutes, and it's not clear whether he was removed by security or if he gave up.
At the beginning of the video, the streaker hopped over the edge of the rink (fully clothed), and then stood on the ice. Almost immediately, he started ripping his clothes off (as streakers do), and then tried skating like an Olympian. Of course, he fell — but he got right back up to continue his performance. If streaking was an sport, I'd certainly give him the gold.
In case the video wasn't enough, check out the photos of the streaker. They'll definitely put a weird twist on your Friday afternoon.
Look at that form.
Peace and love, ya'll.
It looks like all of these athletes have some stiff competition. (I'm kidding.)
If I was an athlete and saw this streaker doing his thing after my race or performance, my anxiety would definitely go down. I mean, c'mon, how can you not laugh at this? A hilarious break from all the tension in the Olympics arena is almost needed, don't you think? This guy did everyone a solid, if you ask me.
As I previously mentioned, the streaker reportedly entered the ice rink after the men’s 1,000 meter speed skating event on Friday morning. TBH, you can't blame him for bringing some personality to the ice. His tutu debut is almost as colorful as all the Winnie the Pooh dolls that are thrown onto the ice after Yuzuru Hanyu's performances. Personality wins, people.
Whether you're into the streaker's debut or not, you have to admit that it added some comedy to the Winter Olympics. The games are ending soon, and it looks like the tutu-wearing streaker will be the only ice crasher of the 2018 games. Of course, you'll need to tune into the rest of the competition in order to find out. I'm honestly kind of curious if the streaker will make his way to the Winter Olympics closing ceremony on Sunday, Feb. 25. Make sure you tune in, and keep your eyes open for a pink tutu.
