Just when you thought Manhattan had enough wall-climbing heroes.
In this rather bizarre event, a 20-year-old man shocked the world yesterday while attempting to scale Trump Tower in New York City in an apparent bid to meet its owner. Using suction cups and sporting an adorable haircut, he was an internet sensation within hours.
Happily, it all ended well as the Virginia resident - later known as Adam - was arrested safely, but not before his slow crawl up to the 20th floor resulted in some comical efforts to stop him from the NYPD.
In the esteemed words of Training Day’s Alonzo Harris, King Kong ain’t got nothing on this chap.
Progress was slow at first
The obvious question was raised
How is Donald trump gonna stop Mexicans from climbing over the border if he can't even stop somebody who climbed his own tower 😂😂🤔— edson diaz the great (@_edsondiaz) August 11, 2016
Tag from Friends, anyone?
But then we all remember the pioneer of this stunt. HELLO?!
Someone had an excellent idea
If "using suction cups to climb the Trump Tower in NYC without a harness" becomes a sport at the Olympics, then the USA has the gold on lock— OpTic CouRage (@CouRageJD) August 10, 2016
And before long it turned into a game of Frogger
It got dicey
Eventually, however, the fun was over and he was captured
There was even a (rare) classy response from Donald
Great job today by the NYPD in protecting the people and saving the climber.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 11, 2016
