Crazy Pic of The Week


pic: http://www.ntnews.com.au

This week’s Crazy Pic was taken on Bagot rd just out of Darwin City in 2008 by Camden Smith. Today it was reported another guy was riding his scooter down the very same rd yesterday in … yep you guessed it , a Mankini ;D

Here is the article to go with this pic , provided by the NT News website , enjoy !

 

A MAN caused a stir on Top End streets yesterday by cruising around on a motorised scooter wearing just a mankini.

The red-headed, tattooed man stopped traffic and turned the heads of many Saturday morning shoppers.

He was wearing a slimming black mankini, shoes and a helmet.

NEWSBREAKER Camden Smith captured this photo of the irreverent motorcyclist at 9.45am yesterday.

Mr Smith was driving along Bagot Rd and came up alongside the man at lights.

“The closer you got, the more it became obvious that he was in the buff,” he said. “His buttocks were hanging over his pocket rocket.”

A 28-year-old Darwin fashion identity, who asked not to be named, saw the man just minutes later in the centre of Darwin.

“He was motoring gleefully through the crowded CBD streets, stopping onlookers in their tracks, with so much flesh on show,” she said.

“He really looked like he was enjoying himself,” the eyewitness said.

“I thought he must have been wearing his mankini to feel comfortable in our hot, wet conditions.

“Luckily he was wearing a bumbag that protected some of his modesty.”

The motorcyclist is not the first brave Territorian to slip into the revealing one-piece made famous by Sacha Baron Cohen’s character Borat.

“Mr Mankini” famously streaked across TIO stadium at the AFL Bulldogs and Fremantle clash in June 2007.

The man, sporting a fetching blue mankini, had the 11,000 strong crowd hooting and screaming as he outran security. The crowd leapt to his defence when he cleared the fence, some by throwing him clothes, others by pinning security guards to the fence so he could escape.
