A man in a horse mask would be funny regardless of the situation, but a recent stunt on live news has given us some laughter during what’s becoming a terrible natural disaster. Our heroic horse mask wearing jogger was spotted while a local NBC affiliate was covering the storm.
According to The Washington Post, the man’s name is Jimmy Kruyne. He only intended to run past the camera as a joke, but didn’t expect to get so much attention. Here’s the video that catapulted him into stardom:
Hurricane Sandy is shaping up to be one of the worst natural disasters of our time. The pictures being posted to Instagram already show a ridiculous amount of flooding in the New Jersey and New York areas. It also looks like it’s going to get worse before it gets better.
It’s in these moments that we can remember the man in the horse mask and laugh. He brought some joy, however little, into our lives as we watch such a terrible storm unfold in the Northeast.
