A man rushes the trophy presentation while Webb Simpson is given his trophy during the 112th U.S. Open golf tournament at The Olympic Club. He calls himself Jungle Bird and he protests deforestation.

Webb Simpson got famous yesterday for winning the U.S. Open. So did Jungle Bird.
That is the gentleman who caused the trophy presentation to go viral when he began to make bird noises in one of the great photo and videobombs of all-time.
Even Simpson tweeted (please excuse us for that one) a photo of the two together.
"I didn't know if he was a streaker or not. I looked at his pants, and he did have pants on." Simpson said on the Scott Van Pelt Show.
Jungle Bird, a 40-year-old from the United Kingdom, has his own Facebook Page and YouTube Channel and his stated goal is to stop deforestation. (Thanks to Awful Announcing for the tip)
It is sort of funny to hear Simpson talk about making birdies to Bob Costas as the man is being led off.
